Re: [Killietalk] Cold water killies
It sounds like we need a little more information, ie, which fish have
you tried? tank space? foods, just how cold are you working with,

Every time I deal with cold water killies, and keep them at the
suggested cold temperature, I have all sort of problems. Fish not
eating, fish not laying eggs, fish getting disease that I normaly
see when a warm water fish lives in temperatures below what they
should be (e.g. bettas at 65F will get dropsy unless ick/velvet
kills them first).
I am usually about 4-5F above literature values on pretty much all
species in order for them to seem happy, eat well, and lay eggs.
I have used all sorts of thermometers, sometimes 10 of them in one
small tank. So I believe the reading I am getting is pretty
accurate. Just the values I need to use are consistantly higher.
Any suggestion on where this might come from ?
