max temp for walstad


my tank has been running at 26C for about 2-3 weeks and one of my newts has got a problem from water quality, because of high temp and food fouling, and also i have go a small amount of white mould on bottom too, is there a max temp for a low tech tank?

Only the same effect temperature will have on any tanking system so based on using soils alone I would say no. My tanks routinely run for months with the temps at 80 - 82F.

something else is in play
