yet another water temp question

well not really, im doing some researching on the net regarding water temperature and plants. I am not going to ask you guys what is the ideal water temp for plants (since diff plant sp. have diff temperature preferences) but does algae really grow more in tanks with higher temperature ?

With an increase in temperature, I'd expect the metabolic rate of algae to increase and if the conditions are not right (fewer plants, less nutrients) you might have more algae.

The other factor is fish. If you increase water temperature, even omnivorous fish will turn vegetarian and start chewing up any remotely edible plants (no, never java fern!).
