• Best freshwater fish for

    From Dolchas@1:278/230 to All on Tue Jul 22 01:09:00 2003
    Greetings all!

    I live in a part of Southern California, USA, where it gets pretty
    darn warm during the summer months -- at least two days in the last
    week the temps got up to 104.5 in the shade. Since I don't have air conditioning, you can imagine how warm my 20-gallon fish tank can get
    -- it certainly is routinely higher than the maxiumum indication of 82
    degrees on the tank thermometer during the summer. There is no way I
    can move this tank into a cooler location unless I move it to the
    basement. I do put ice in the tank when things get desperate.

    Surprisingly, the fish I have had in this tank have not done badly --
    I guess I have varieties that tolerate high temps.

    Anyway, I got a new tank recently to replace my old one, and I will be
    buying a bunch of new fish soon. Can anyone recommend types of
    freshwater fish that are known for being particularly tolerate of high temperatures?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!
