Uhhhh are you sure? I thought Paradish fish were cool / moderate water fish.Seasoldier said:Paradise fish: Quote 'Paradise fish (Macropodus opercularis) sport a gorgeous mixture of reds, blues, and pale yellow. They withstand a very wide rage of temperature from as low as 50F (10C) degrees up to being comfortable at 90F (32C) degrees, and live for up to eight years'.
HI DD, I've been looking at these for a while as I was thinking of adding some to my tank, I've read various articles & looked on different forums & there are many differences in temperature ranges quoted for these fish, the one I quoted above was from one such article. As they come from a very hot area of the world & live happily in shallow, slow moving water & bogs in the wild I would think they would be a species which would tolerate higher temperatures but maybe different for captive bred fish, I'll try & find a link to the page I took the quote from.DoubleDutch said:Uhhhh are you sure?

Hi, yes that's a link to a Fishlore info page, not the site I took the original quote from, as I just said to DoubleDutch I've found several differences in temperature range for these fish on different sites & in different articles although the one I quoted above was the highest I found.Redshark1 said:That link says Temperature 74°F - 82°F (23°C - 28°C)
