Praecox Rainbow Temperatures
I'm a bit confused why the listed temperature for the Praecox Rainbow
(Melanotaenia praecox) on liveaquaria.com is 64-72*F. The majority of other Rainbow fish species are listed as up to 77*F.
My tank stays around 80*F, which the rest of the fish like. Is this too warm for the Rainbows?
My Tank: 20 Gallon Freshwater High Tech Planted
My Plants: Dwarf Sagittaria, Riccia, Crypt Lutea, Rotala Macandra, Corkscrew Val, Blyxa Japonica, Ambulia, Anubias Nana, Flame Moss, Christmas Moss, Echinodorus Parviflorus.
My Fish: 1 German Gold Ram, 3 Praecox Rainbows, 1 Otocinclus Catfish, 1 Siamese Algae Eater, 1 Rummynose Tetra, 4 Cherry Barbs
My Inverts: Ramshorn Snails, Apple Snails.
