Different plants have different temperature requirements and most plants sold for use in tropical tanks require tropical temperatures. 76 degrees is pushing the low end of normal tropical temperatures, and 70 degrees will definitely compromise the immune systems of your tropical fish and may be detrimental to your plants.
