Dojo loach tenperature issues

I have this gold dojo loach in my 20g tank (i know its small for him) and the temperature avarage is 74-78 and the perfect temperature for him is 64-70, should i not have it in my tank? Will he survive longer?

He is with me for about 7 months and share his planted tank with 1 blue ramirezi and 1 juvenile angel fish...he looks fine but this week he is looking for shadows and dark spots...

All other fish and plants need 70+ temperature as long as i know.

Dojo loaches are hardy. Higher temperatures speed up metabolism, but 72-74 won't hurt him. Mine is in a 76 atm and has been in several tank set ups with varying temperature between them. Just keep your temp stable.
