The same temperature as their mommies tank. The important part is that a heater is in it so that the little guys won't get stressed. I have heard the notion of a slightly warmer tank but I don't think its that big of deal...

Go Fry!

Warm temperature allows the fry to grow quickly as their metabolism is increased but this also ages them quickly quite unfortunately.
