stocking a 29 gallon tank

My 29 Gallon is finally cycled!! I have decided to stock it with 6 glofish white skirt tetra, 6 glofish zebra danios and a pair of german blue rams. Aqadvisor states I have plenty filtration with my fluval 206 canister filter, and my stock capacity would be at 70%. Now it says the tetras can go in fine with the gbr's but my danios need a temperature between 65 and 75. The lowest temp for a gbr is 78. Is it possible to keep danios in higher temps?? Say about 82 degrees?? Or should I go with a different kind of fish??

many fish will adapt to conditions outside their ideals and do okay. and while danios tend to be hardy fish it is always best to provide favorable temps and parameters for your fish. you might be able to get away with the higher temp but if you arent 100% dead set on the fact that you must have danios it would be better to stock a fish that will be happier and most importantly healthier in the temp youre going to have.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not have their motives questioned.....Dont worry about what people think, because they seldom do.......If you cant laugh at yourself I'll be glad to do it for you.....stop trying to impress people, they're too busy trying to impress everyone else to notice
