I didn't assume that. I said 'Colder rooms' meaning  room
temperatures less than that of a usual aquarium. ie less
than 24 - 28C. Even if 18C I would'nt call that cold. But
some of the plants (or their roots would).

I don't find plants like those temperatures either.  That's
why I have to use cooling fans.

>We do not live in igloos.   :o)

I hear that in igloos it gets so hot people run around
naked. Maybe, that's why they don't need aquaria to keep
them entertained.;-)
