SC Fish Posted May 8, 2022 Share Posted May 8, 2022 (edited) My tank has 1 layer of floating plants (a bit scattered now because i removed some) , im wondering if floating plants increase the temperature in the fish tank?? If so how many floating plants should i have per litre? Because i dont want to get rid of them. Its a 10 gallon tank, home to platys and minnows. The temperature has increased but i belive it is due to the fact spring is here and summer is right round the corner. To help cope as of right now.. I have removed some floating plants, turned up the oxygen input (temporarily but i may keep it on for a long time). Im wondering if its a god idea to add some cooler water to the tank right now. they are used to about 17 to 19 degrees celcius (62f to 66f) and right now its 20 (68f). The minnows are acting strange (read my last post for more on this) but the platys are behaving as usuall. Tips? EDIT: the water has also became very murky and cloudy in the last couple days..
