How importent is maintaining a constant water temperature?

Postby Walter Soestbergen » Sat Jan 31, 2004 12:35 pm

Fish are ectrothermic, which means they only have a limited, if any, ability to physiologically maintain a constant body temperature. In most fish body temperature usually matches the temperature of the water it is in. In any one environment, fish acclimatize to relatively narrow tempature range. Any rapid change to that range will stress the fish and lead to possible illness. I would prefer not to do so by more than 2C
