No. Have you read the profile? The name shaded, forming a link to the profile. Under Water PArameters, it specifically says this species will not do well above the given range which is 78F at the highest.

From Alex's tank page:

"Large common pleco,small pleco,2swordtails,one standard angelfish and 4 vieled angelfish"

Thanks Jeff. If these are the fish, keep the temp around 77F. The angels are almost sure to be commercially raised [= not wild caught] and they will be better around 77-78F. The swordtails could be cooler, but they will manage at this temp too, and certainly better than above 80F. The pleco depends upon species, but this should again suffice.

Alex, please get in the habit of using our profiles. There is a lot of helpful info in them, like all this about temperatures.

Byron.
