Hot Water Treatment for Nematodes in Amorphs and a note on Spanthantheum
From: "StroWi at t-online.de" <StroWi at t-online.de> on 2007.04.01 at 08:37:06(15540)|
just one point before you go and buy an aquarium heater...
I am not sure, if it will be possible to set a temperature of 46 °C with
an aquaium heater. Normally they work with a bimetal switch which might
not be suitable for such high temperatures.
So you have to inqiuire at a pet shop if they do.
