I have a 10 gallon fish take and have just added a heater since it is colder. What is a good temperature?

Tank mates are Gouramis, pleco, tetras, and zebra danias.

    Actually I think that 80F is too high for most fish. 75-78F is a better range for the majority if tropical fish.

    from 80 degrees to 85 degrees... or so... don't add any fishes within 24 hours... let the heater heat up the whole tank before adding fishes...
