Gold Fish In A Tropical Tank.

I went into a pet shop today and noticed they had your regular standard comets in a tank with guppies and platies.

I saw the heater set at 28 C.

I didnt think you could do this, I always thought they would get cooked.

What are your thoughts ?

My goldfish in the garden pond have been living in about 28-30 degrees all summer. They're fine a breeding like rabbits.

It's a myth that goldfish are coldwater fish, they are eurythermal, which means they can live in any temp between 0 to 41. Coldwater fish can't live in tropical temps, they won't be happy and in a lot of cases they will die.
