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?
