my temp is currently around 75, it fluctuates with my apt temp, so it varies from 73 to about 78 through out the day.

the high flow hits the glass and comes down onto my river rocks and then gets broken up by my line of wood behind it. so i am able to get away with high flow for my loaches, and filter feeders, and low flow in in the back area from my rams.

to aid the rams while feeding i usually turn down the flow.

they were listed at the store as reticulated hillstream loaches, not tiger hillstream loaches, idk if those are different varieties. they have not spawned for me, but im not really trying to get them to spawn.
