82F to hot for apistos?

MoshJosh

I have a pair of apistogramma viejta and a pair of apistogramma nijsseni. Each pair is in a 20 gallon long. I would like them to breed. Adjusted the heaters yesterday, was looking for 80F, ended up 82F. . . Should I turn down the heaters? I’ve read mixed things about apisto temps?

82 is fine. If the goal is to produce fry of both sexes, I’d suggest a temp in the 76-78* range
