    Default Scented Plants in Fish Room

    Hi everyone.

    I am a newbie to this forum and of course seeking help :-)

    I am looking to find out if it would be ok to have scented house plants in the fish room i am building?

    I hope to have the room heavily stocked with various scented plants including orchids etc and was thinking would this be an issue with the air pump pumping scented air into the tanks?

    Thanks in advance for any help :-)

    Hi!

    I have actually never thought of this and i am not sure if i am preaching truth here (so fellow members, DO correct me when im wrong), but orchids are growing in the amazon, where discus originated from. However, the concentration of scent in the air of your room will probably be much higher...

    I think (let me stress: THINK) that if you are not going to be using artificial scents and or plants that release toxic pollen you should be fine.

    I am actually curious what the actual scientific answer is, so tag me when you get it!

    Hi Tim

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yes i was also thinking that the scent would be more concentrated in the fish room than the jungle etc and could therefore cause issues.

    Will tag you in :-)

    I have about twenty orchids in my apartment and I have six tanks of fish and I have never had a problem. This is not scientific but it is only my experience.
