What Temperature?

54 gallon freshwater tank, live plants but no fish yet.

We're thinking about cory cats, rasbora, and guppies.
What would be the ideal temperature for the tank? According to what I've read, it seems like all 3 of those can exist in the same temperature range- but should we aim for the low end of the shared range, or the high end?

Need species on rasbora and cories.
Some cories have different ranges. Generally the middle range of community is desired.

What Temperature?

Generally tropical tanks are 72-82 so if unsure shoot for 77 or so. I keep both or mine at 78.

Harlequin rasbora. Hadn't decided which type of cory yet. I like panda, but my spouse wants larger ones, maybe emerald.

Imo temps have risen over the years. You could be in the 75 to 78 range. Id probably shoot for 76. Fish will do better so will the majority of your plants.

54g kind of odd size. Idk the length or where you live but you may want to consider two smaller heaters.
