Hey All,

I want some Java Fern in my tank.
Just wondering if Java Fern can grow lush at a temperature of 82F or 28C?
I have read that its a tough plant but prefers cool water.
I ask because I also want some Cardinal Tetra in my tank, and these fish do well at 82F.

Thanks,
-Harry

Hello,

java fern was a favorite of discus keepers keeping a bare bottom tank, back in the time when CO2 injection was not that common. As you know discus fish also like high temperatures.
