They like it around 74-80F ,lighting doesn't really matter. They will eat crushed flakes or micro bacteria. Also they like clean water Gravel or sand ether they like both.

Be careful with gravel though they may get stuck among it and die

Actually lighting does matter, a minimum of 8 hours of light a day or theyre spine will bend

I never heard that and when I had guppies I never had 8hrs a day of lighting. Their spine didn't bend >.< and for the gravel my fry never got smashed that's why I didn't say it. Sand I prefer though!
