Does temperature matter?

Yes. Temperature is very important. The bacteria grow quicker when the water is warmer (so ponds take longer to mature) and drops in temperature can slow the process. In experiments in marine tanks, a rise of 4C increased ammonia oxidation by 50% and nitrite oxidation by 12%. Dropping the temperature by just 1C reduced ammonia oxidation by 30%.
