I have 2 in separate tanks. It's winter here and the tanks are unheated, currently at 18C/64F. That's the lowest the temp has been so far, don't think it will fall further, it didn't last year.

edit: I have read different suggestions about preferred pH. Most sites recommend neutral or slightly acidic. One site said neutral to high 7's. My tanks are in the mid 7's and they do fine. I think they are very adaptable and hardy fish.

The coldest My tank's gotten was 13 * celsius. The fish simply slowed down. They were fine, just rather eager to breed when the water warmed up.
