What is the coldest water temperature a plecostemus can tolerate?
ours have a tank next to the radiator pipe, and manage well in kitchen. When we do a full water change we add a kettle of boiled water BEFORE they go back in and this seems to do them nicely, they are 2 years old.
The above answer is terrible. Who cares if it is next to a radiator pipe...and what the heck does boiled water have to do with answering how cold the water is. This person wants an answer not a diatribe on your weird water changes. Soooooo to answer the question: A Plecostemus can tolerate in the low 60s, but proper temperature should be above 68.
If you want your Plecco to thrive you will keep it above 75F and you will also remember that it will grow into a very large fish (12inches or more) so it needs a large tank too.
I am a Canadian with a spring fed pond on my property and when they get too big i throw them in there. somehow those south-American catfish can live through the winter! toughest fish ive ever seen! i watched one chase the giant largemouth bass that's in there around the shallows! i think they can adapt to just about anything.
No, but they are related. Absolute zero is the coldest possible temperature. Absolute temperature is the temperature above this coldest possible temperature - i.e., how much hotter is it than the coldest theoretically possible temperature. Celsius temperature isn't absolute. It starts from the temperature of freezing water, and it needs negative numbers for anything colder than that. Fahrenheit temperature isn't absolute. It says that zero is 32 degrees colder than freezing water, and it needs…
The coldest temperature on earth was recorded at Vostok Station in Antarctica located at the Pole of Inaccessibility, meaning it is the farthest from any open water. Because the South Pole does not enjoy this claim, Vostok Station owns the record for the coldest place in Antarctica. You can read more about Vostok, below.
I can't speak for ALL liquids but in general probably yes. However, water in particular has what is known as an anomalous expansion, as follows. When you cool water from, let's say 40C it contracts as it gets cooler until about 4C when it starts to expand again. Then at 0C it freezes. So the coldest water is at the top (at this temperature range) because the coldest water is lightest.
Absolute coldest temperature is the temperature beyond which any object cannot go colder. This is the temperature after which there is no heat energy left in the substance. The molecular movement comes to an absolute standstill with relative to the rest of the body and hence no heat gets generated. This is also called zero-point energy. In 1848, Lord Kelvin published a paper in which he stressed the importance of inventing a scale that would…
Yes, shingles are not contagious . However, the temperature and force of the water may be painful, so keep the water temperature and flow as low as you can tolerate. You will need to obtain prescription medication to treat this painful disease, as it may last longer than viral infections seen with cold sores.
Most crayfish can tolerate a small amount of salt, but there are none that I know of that can tolerate full strength seawater. Most can tolerate brackish water for short periods of time, but extended exposure will kill them. They are adapted to freshwater environments, and freshwater is best for them.
In 2003 the Space Ship Challenger recorded a temperature in outerspace of 32 degrees, the temperature water freezes. Little did they know, but upon return the Challengers on-board ice chest was unlatched so skeptics believe the temperature recording was skewed due to the Challengers ice stash floating around in space.
The ocean's temperature doesn't change that much from summer to winter. However the water under the Ross ice shelf, by Antarctica, stays around 28 degrees Fahrenheit ( -3 Celsius) and stays liquid because of the salt content. Water tends to exclude most other substances, so even frozen sea water doesn't have that much salt in it.
Celsius: Based on the properties of water where 0 is freezing and 100 is boiling. C= (F-32) *(5/9) Fahrenheit: Based on the properties of water where 32 is freezing and 212 is boiling. This worked out because 0 was set as the coldest it got, and 100 the hottest it got, at the place in Europe where Fahrenheit lived when he developed the scale. F=(C*9/5)+32 Kelvin: Based on the properties of matter where 0 is…
Depends on what you mean by animal. I think Earthworms (which belong to the kingdom of animalia) are a possible candidate. As I've understood it, the common earthworm Lampito can tolerate body temperatures of about 17 Celsius, while the commercial earthworm Perionyx can tolerate body temperatures of about 9 Celsius. Source: http://jeb.biologists.org/cgi/content/abstract/59/3/655 I'm currently searching myself what the lowest temperature a mammal can tolerate is. Edit: it turns out the lowest NORMAL body temperature of…
