I've heard people say 75F, some say 78F is too hot so 73F, and some
guides say 78F. What is a good temperature which fire reds will breed
a lot?

They don't need a heater. Common misconception. They like it without one. We actually have members who keep neocardinia (same genus as fire red) in barrels that go through the winter, and they survive.

Needless to say, unless you live in an ice box, don't worry about it.

If they hover from 65-70° they'll be good.

They're Neos. There's nothing special. You put them in a healthy tank environment and they breed. I have no idea what the water parameters of the barrel are beyond temperature.

You aren't going to get rich off of them unless you put in several hours per week culling, selectively breeding and making sure colors are perfect.
