that stays at 80 degrees without a heater. I'm not sure if the 125 will need a heater either. Can fish adjust if the temperature is within a degree or two?
=> 75.2 - 86F: Angelfish
=> 64.4 - 80.6F: Peppered Cory
=> 71.6 - 82.4F: Upside Down Catfish
=> 68 - 78.8F: Black Ruby Barb
=> 64.4 - 77F: Denisoni Barb
=> 78.8 - 86F: Blue Ram
Denison Barbs should be fine at 79F ... the trick is to acclimate them properly and maintain stable temperatures ... drip acclimation should do the trick.
