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.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

From Alex's tank page:

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

Total years fish keeping experience: 7 months, can't start counting in years for a while yet.

Small scale nitrogen cycle with a jar, water and fish food; no substrate, filter etc

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.
