are we talking cyanoguttatus or carpintis?

cyanoguttatus come from naturally colder water, and the temp i normally recommend for cyanoguttatus is around 75F, but they can handle anywhere from 68-86, i just usually recommend 75 so if it fluctuates a bit it wont go out of the cyanoguttatus' temp range.

carpintis
(green texas), i would recommend more like 78, as there temp reange is about 75-82, so a bit of fluctuation wont hurt it.

IMO 82-86 is a bit high! I keep all of my tanks around 80 and I have great success with it. I would just say anywhere from 78-80 would be great!

Oh I am sure they can handle it and I am sure a lot of cichlids can. I just wouldn't advise it! I mean sure it will keep a lot of diseases down but the fish wouldn't enjoy it if its all the time!
