SouthAmericanCichlids said:Koi need 500 gallons each, I would suggest: Rice fish, mosquito fish, cherry shrimp, and goldfish. And like RayClem said, it needs to be deep enough it doesn't freeze. Or you need a ton of water movement on the surface so it doesn't.
Since you have not posted your location, we have no idea what the climate is in your area. Cherry shrimp would certainly need a heater where I live in northern Illinois, but they might not need a heater in southern Florida, southern Arizona, southern California or in Barbados where one forum member lives.AllAboutAngelfish said:WHAT!!!!! dont cherry shrimp need a heater!?
I have heard them kept in quite cold temperatures, as long as it doesn't freeze over, but they won't breed in these times, I believe aquarium co-op has been successful with this. But most will agree mid to high 50s should be the coldest.AllAboutAngelfish said:WHAT!!!!! dont cherry shrimp need a heater!?
Ohhhh well, we live about 6-10 hours away from each other so, it makes sense to have different temps.AcornTheBetta said:Nope. Monday it got to 20 where I am. IDK what it was yesterday. Maybe 35 where I'm at
