Rosy red minnows are a color variant of the fathead minnow, a common baitfish in the US. Like most cyprinids they will eat almost anything, so your basic tropical flakes or pellets will do. As far as temp, they are very similar to common goldfish. They are hardy enough to live in ponds. In an aquarium, you will never have to worry about them being too cold. Just try to keep the water temp under 80F.
