I have my rams at about 79-80 F and they seem to be doing fine there. The pleco is a mega clown, which is a hypancistrus and not a good algae eater. My trusted source for catfish info says the temp is not a problem. If you want an algea eater I would go with one of the Ancistrus species, the most adaptable of which is the common bushynose pleco.
