    I'd keep them at 75-80F, depending on the fish species that they're with.

    1 - Take your shoes and socks off so you can count a little higher
    2 - Deduct 32 (gives 43-48)
    3 - Multiply by 5 (gives 215-240)
    4 - Divide by 9 (gives 23.8-26.6)

    So 24-27 of these new fangled thingys

    PS: Which Amazon plants aren't from SA?

    Took my socks off and collapsed

    Most plants that are south american are in fact from colder waters like argentina, not many are from the amazon, boss man from Tropica told us that a couple of years ago

    Leaving aside Argentina being in SA, I didn't realise that. Would make it tricky to do a proper Amazon biotope if the available plants are from further south.

    Yea, from what I can gather from what I have heard from talks/people that have been there, its mostly mud/roots and fallen leaves, not a great deal of plants as the water is often 'black' and with little hardness or ph

    Handy to know. Long term plan for my five footer is an Amazon set up (just don't tell the clowns!)

    As we know that the dynamic temperature range anywhere from (18° to 24°C) is perfect. However, most of the plant has no trouble and tolerating almost (32°C).

    This depends on your fish. But normally temperature range of anywhere from 65° to 75°F (18° to 24°C) is just perfect for them.
