I have a question. At what temperature will plants start to be affected? The current temp in my tank is around 75-78 degrees without a heater. My new heater came in from Amazon, and I've decided to just go ahead and buy a bottle of Ich Attack from Petco so that I can begin treatment tonight rather than waiting for the bottle I ordered from Amazon to arrive tomorrow. I just want to know how high I can raise my temps with the following flora and fauna:
Flora: anacharis, rotala rotundifolia, DHG, jungle val, giant val, water wisteria, Hygrophila corymbosa, java fern, subwassertang
Fauna: neon tetras (prefer cooler water), peppered corys (prefer cooler water), guppies (adults and multiple fry), GBR, ghost shrimp, MTS, ramshorn snails
I want to get the temps up in the mid-80s if possible. Ultimately, I think I want to put a priority on saving the GBR, guppies and plants. I don't want to lose my neons, but I only paid $1 each for them. I also don't want to lose my corys (2 of them), but if they go, I wouldn't mind replacing them with a school of smaller corys that prefer warmer temperatures. Once I'm done with my ich treatment, I plan on leaving the temp at around 80-82 degrees.
