power outage... cold preggo sword

SOooooo due to the fish shortages up north I decided to set up a breeder 10g for my swords when they get preggo so I can help out my LFS. WELL, during the afternoon sometime I had a GFI problem which ill go on about in another post. BUT my breeder tank complete with preggo swordtail dropped from 78 to 72 in only a few hours, and now gradually increasing it manually. are her kids gonna survive, or will she miscarry?

Since it didn't drop that far from one second to the next second but over time I think chances are real well. Thou one thing I had learned back in the day when I had Swords and alike; I housed mine at room Temp no heat attached (in livingrm) and whenever we had a night where it dropped cooler then usual they'd pop that very night; I could set my alarm for it on the dot, Temp drop, they have fry same story all the time over the winter month.
