What temp should I keep my Tetramorium ants at?

Hi, I am about to start a Tetramorium ant colony. I was wondering what temp is ok for these ants while having little effect on growth because I have to keep them in an air conditioned room. Do you think that 68 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit is fine?

Normally the nest should be in between 16 and 25 degrees Celcius but the outworld can be in the high 20's and at most, 30 degrees Celcius.
