Effect of Temperature on Aquarium Plants

  • Temperature play a important role in the growth of aquarium plants since metabolism is affected by the temperature but the needs of specific fish can vary. So temperature check is important especially when our climatic conditions also changes.

  • Most aquatic plants will require temperature between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but more heat means the plants will have a higher metabolic rate and grow faster.

  • I feel like many people don’t put too much effort into checking freshwater plants for the water temperature unless the plant is melting (due to high or cold heat) as they do with corals for saltwater tanks.

  • Anything between 70 and 80 degrees would be beneficial to the plants but it would be wise to keep an eye on the plants and also an eye on the temperature that you are using as well as most plants tend to thrive off the heat and that can often lead to the plants growing a lot faster and potentially taking over your tank.
