I just received all my plants for my tank, I had ordered them when I noticed a new fish has ich. I'm treating it with heat, because of my snails and shrimp. The tanks temperature is at 32°c until tomorrow then it will go down to 30°c for 6 days. I don't want to put my new plants in until the temperature is back down and the ich is gone. My question is what's the best way to keep my plants alive until then? Should I un-pot them and put them[censored]in a bucket of cool water until I'm ready? Will they be ok for at least 6 days? I do have a spare tank but my air pump is in my tank to help oxygenate it while the temperature is so high. I'm pretty[censored]new to the planted tank, I'm all low tech no co2,[censored]normal lighting so the plants are all low tech as[censored]well. Any advice would be much appreciated thanks

The question would be what plants do you have? Many plants can tolerate 32C (89/90F) for a week or two, although may show signs of stress.

Rooting plants shouldn't be uprooted if possible.

I can tell you from experience than Anubias, Java Fern, and Vals will all handle a short time frame of those temps.
