plants and mosses for 80 degrees

Recommended Posts

Yeah, mosses are a fickly bunch aren't they! Java moss enjoys cooler water for sure. I would try some Frogbit and Anubia. I bet some dwarf Sag would be okay too. Honestly, most plants should be fine at higher temps, but some mosses revolt. I take the try and toss approach. I try different plants, if they don't like it, I toss them and try another. 😁

I would try Hygrophila Polysperma, pretty bullet proof plant if I was honest.

Hi @hopeful1

I have discus that I keep at 85 degrees and have experimented with several species and was surprised at how many did very well at the higher temperatures.  Here are some of them:

Bacopa colorata
Microsporum pteropus 'Trident' and 'Windelov'
Ceratopteris thalictroides
Limnophila sp. 'Curly'
Rotala H'ra
Rotala sp. Bangladesh
Nymphoides hydrophylla
Ludwigia arcuata
Myriophyllum sp. 'Guyana'
Ludwigia arcuata x repens
Barclaya longifolia
Staurogyne 'Porto Velho'
Helanthium angustifolia 'Vesuvius'

Minimum nutrient dosing but I do have CO2.  -Roy
