Question about Guppies? ... ?
Hi I have a good sized coldwater tank with 4 Fantails, 2 Orandas, 2 Pearlscales and a Yellow goldfish... The water temp is around 21-22 C (68-70 F) and I wondered if 1 or 2 guppies would be a possibility? All of my fish are sociable & I wanted a more interesting variety of fsh.... if guppys arnt possible then what others are? Plz help!!! xx :D
p.s if the temp is an issue I could purchase a heater to raise it a bit more ..
Any advice greatly appriciated... HAPPY NEW YR EVERY1! xx
Re: Question about Guppies? ... ?
Danio's are a good choice.
Yes Danios could be a choice for you depending on the size of your tank.
Technically danios are considered cold-water fish, preferring water in the 64-75 degree range.
the tank is 30 x 15 x 12 (88litre / 18 gallon) wuold definatley be prepared to buy a heater though... would the fish i have now be fine with the slight temp change? Thnx all xx
Oranda bred in a slightly more heated temp can survive I have done that before. Thing is you'll get the biotope brigade on your back as its not the correct envioroment for the species. :)
ahhhhhh ok .. so its not a gd idea about the guppies lol the fish I have now are all quite small, I know they guna grow but would there be too many if i added one more small fish? xx
Sorry Amber but you are waay too over-stocked. Goldfish need at least 45 litres each as babies and double that or more as adults! (even fancy goldfish) so before even thinking about getting more fish you will need a larger aquarium. How long have you had your fish in tis tank because it is most likely you have stunted their growth which is'nt a good thing :(
If you are going to get a larger aquarium I would suggest white cloud minnows - they are great hardy coldwater fish! :)
