Stock list and temperature question

Below is a wish list of the fish I want and the temperatures they require. I will be putting these in a 125 gal tank I am getting in a few weeks. They all seem to be ok in 79 degrees except for the Dennison's Barb. Will 79 degrees be harmful to the Dennison's Barbs? Also I have a 10 gal 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

Thanks

Denison Barbs should be fine at 79F ... the trick is to acclimate them properly and maintain stable temperatures ... drip acclimation should do the trick.
