How cold is too cold?
I'm a new killie keeper. So new in fact that I don't have any killies
yet! I'm setting up some fish racks at the moment. I joined the AKA
several months back, and have read the excellent guide that came with
membership, as well as this list.
I would like to start out with some Fp. gardneri, and perhaps some
My tanks will be set up in a corner of the basement, which runs very
cool at this time of the year. The temperature is approximately 16-17 C
(61-63 F). Is this too cool for the species I'm interested in keeping?
I know killies like cooler water, but most of the literature that
I've seen lists the requirements for these species at around 68-70 F.
I could use aquarium heaters, but I find them difficult in tanks smaller
than 10 gallons. I don't have any other way of reliably heating the
basement at this point.
