Believe me there is no way our house is ever that cold!!! I wasn't sure what our room temp was but my mum was telling me the room temp WITHOUT THE HEATERS coz course they arent always on. I dunno what temp it is with the heaters but it is much hotter then that LOL. it doesn't rerally feel that cold whe I test it with my finger but I dunno. danios and the others are just sold as coldwater fish in aust. I dunno how log our life spans will be coz we've still got pretty much the original fish from 5 years ago except me who trusted my fishes lives to an apparently crappy holiday block and ended up with my goldfish and only a couple of others. I dunno if it has slowed their metabolism coz they are pretty frisky round feeding time. dunno. yeah the tank is pretty nearly stable and has a light on it all day so the plants have flourished (plus filter) so it's well oxygenated.
have a nice day all, luv cat

Do you have a thermometer in the tank to test the temp?

no but I'm getting one for my guppy tank so I think I will get one for my coldwater as well.
can you feed fruit or veges to guppies?
is there anything (fruit orveg) that I can pulvurise for my babies guppies for a change.
is it alright for my baby guppies to be eating the snail eggs on their plants. I think they are.
luv cat

How about Tinfoil Barbs? Would they do well in cold water? When I say cold water I mean room temperature which would be 60-65 F or 18 C.

No tropical fish in a coldwater tank at all. They need temps from 75-84 depending on the species.
