    Goldfish like colder water than glass catfish can stand, I think.

    I do have a spare heater and goldfish (i think) can live in warm temperatures.

    No they can't mix goldfish are coldwater and glassfish are tropical and goldfish are messing, glutonous, disease carrying which are deadly to other fish type of fish, so no, sorry :'(

    Atm is right, they can't be put together. The Goldies won't appreciate anything more than room temp.

    Yup but it's not a bad idea to put a heater in your goldfish tank if the room temperature can get in the low sixtys which can be dangerous I think to goldies and that way they will have a constant temperature.

    Yes, a heater in a Goldie tank to maintain a constant temp is not a bad idea, but of course it shouldn't actually be heating the tank past room temp to where it would be acceptable for a tropical fish.
