Temperatures for German Blue Rams

I've always read on forums that German Blue Rams need warmer temps above 80F. However, I was reading their profile on Seriously Fish (a site generally known for its very accurate information) and I noticed that their temperature range for these fish is 22C to 30C, or approx. 72F to 86F.

I'm fairly confident that Seriously Fish has correct info, but I'm just looking for other people's input on this subject. Is the warm water requirement only needed for wild specimens and those bred for the aquarium trade are OK with lower temperatures? I'm hoping to be able to keep some at 76F and according to this info that shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks,
Harry

Often lower temps(below 80) can cause stress and or illness in many GBR...
I believe it also leads to a shorter life span ,something few GBR can afford...
IMO I would not keep them under 80...
I keep and breed mine in 82 + .
Hope this helps...
