Well heres another question: if i were to set the heat to 78 and then it sometimes dropped as low as 76, would that be okay?

Having the lowest acceptable temperature typically lengthens the lifespan while still not compromising the immune system, right?

Yep. Just make sure it doesn't fluctuate too much, now that's hazardous.

I keep my tank around 83F-84F since we keep our house temp at 75F and the tank is near an air vent that doesn't really even face straight down at the tank.

When I set my tank up I kept it around 78 but my boy always seemed rather sluggish.
I upped it gradually to 83 and now he's more active and lively than he was at 78
