First Tropical set up need help on temperature for my fish?

Hi

Moving my temperate fish into a heated tank soon, I have 4 Danios, 2Platys and 3 white cloud minnows.

I have heard that the minnows and danios like slightly cooler temperatures, But I would like my Platys to be a little more comfortable hence why I am moving them into Tropical tank.
I have a coldwater tank 40gallons but is overstocked with temperate fish so they have to move out as my goldies althou still babies need their space to grow long term wise. So better to move now rather than later as I don't want my Oranda and Black Moor to get stunted. I am very keen to see these two get really big and live a long time I have only had them 4months,

What temperature would be a happy ideal and tolerable for all? and sizewise Tropical tank is 3ftx1ftx1ft stocking wise is 4danios, 2platys and 3minnows fully stocked or once set up would there be room to add a few more minnows and danios to help raise school for them?

Any advice on these topics is helpful

Emma
