Hiya all. Fishlore is an excellent site but there are no profiles for fresh coldwater fish such as black mores red caps shabunkins etc.
I am currently keeping tropicals and with the help of FishLore I am pleased to report successfully! and will continue. I am now considering a coldwater tank.
Would be great if fishlore could add a coldwater section with profiles just like their tropicals/marines I know they have a goldfish bit but that doesn't really cover the whole scale of things ...what do you think?
Oh go on FishLore lets make this site the ultimate place to be for ALL fishkeepers.

Since Shubumpkins, Moors etc. are Goldfish - there is Goldfish profile that covers them all. Really it's just like a tropical tank, without a heater. The stocking rule is for the first goldfish 20gal, and 10gal for every single goldie after. So, 3 Goldies need a 40gal. Don't keep fancy and Non fancy (Common, Comet, Shubumpkin) together.

I see what Richard is saying. There is a lot more temperate fish than just goldfish. Perhaps that is a project worth looking into.

Thanks for the suggestion, Richard.

It would be cool if we (the FL members) could submit them, apart from in the magazine.
