We keep our discus tank at 83 F. It's a 100 g tank with 7 discus, a
few cardinals, 6 asst'd corys, 2 SAE and 1 farlowella. It has
CO2 injection (15 ppm), 100w DIY/Dupla substrate heating coils,
laterite, Dupla fertilizers, 4 40w FL bulbs @ 9 hours per day.
The following plants are currently in the tank and doing well:
Anubias barteri var nana
Ludwigia mullertii "Red Ludwigia"
Microsorium pteropus "Java Fern"
Shinnersia rivularis "Mexican Oak Leaf"
Vesicularia dubyana "Java Moss"
... and probably a few others that slip my mind right now.
