    Those are hifin platies, same species as normals (no such thing as cold water platy). All platies are cool water, so room temp is fine, but they are also fine in warmer temps. When mine were growing and breeding like crazy they were in an unheated 10 gallon. The genetics are crazy on these guys with all those colors, so I am not sure but I would be surprised if you got only reds.

    The 'warm water' ones are the same species, no different. There is not a warm water and cold water version, they are the same type of fish. Both are fine at room temp or in heated tanks.
