It is definitely more important to keep your fish at their proper temperature I feel. Plants, and really fish for that matter, will all acclimate to whatever tropical temp you provide. It is just always safer to base the temp off your fish. Some tanks go as low as 72, but only certain fish prefer that. I got 7 tanks and only one is at 74. The rest are all at 78-80. My pressurized CO2, planted tank with T-5 HO runs at 79
