I said they said they are ideal for the 75-degree tank. They don't do well in the high 70's and low 80's of most tropical tanks. They do best between 72 and 75, thus your tank is pretty much perfect for him, temperature-wise.
If you ever get into well-planted tanks, a 20 gallon would be a pretty sight with 24-36 CPD's and 12 Danio choprai.
