Anubias Temp?


What is the safest high temperature to keep an Anubias healthy? Currently battling a mild case of Ich and have the heater set at 85F.

85 degrees shouldn't harm it, but I wouldn't go over ninety. Anubias is very hardy, and if its not too warm for the fish, the anubias should survive.

no need to go much over 85 with ick anyways, the common strains die at that temperature.

if you are super super super SUPER unlucky, I have heard of a one in a million strain that does not die at that temperature at any stage of its life, but at that point I don't think anything would help you anyways. plus, I've only ever heard about it in an article, never actually seen that documented or heard of it happening to someone.
