I think that's a fine temp for a comet. For a little perspective, mine live in an outdoor pond that freezes over a couple of times through the winter, obviously I have to break the ice for them though.

His dorsal fin is down is that normal he was thrashing into the sand and filter then he swims normally my sister in law who had him for 2 years in a 10 gallon said he always has his dorsal fin down and he was always laying down on her gravel after almost a week in his new home he was starting to swim around with his dorsal fin out but today he started acting weird all water parameters are ok
