Re: [APD] Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 31, Issue 61

Yes, the water gets quite warm.  As I said in the original post, it gets up to 90F sometimes in the summer.  That's why I need temperate plants.  Species that can stand up to both cool winter and warm summer temperatures.  I don't expect them to grow much at the extremes, but I would prefer that they don't completely disintegrate.

I don't want to "fix" the tank.  It's not that broken.  The fish are breeding and I have some beautiful swords that are getting ready to flower.  I was just after suggestions of a few more hardy, temperate species to try.  What lives in the same biotope as E. uruguayensis, for example?
