Okay but is no one going to question why OP has put tropical bettas with coldwater goldfish? Like, am I reading this thread wrong?

O_o Erm. HUGE temp difference there. I've kept goldfish in like, 72-74 happy but any higher and they act funny.

In their original thread proposing the idea, it was definitely brought up.

No longer active.

Right now in my climate it's summer and it's hot. My pond has small cold water goldfish. The temperature is fine for bettas, and it will have to make do for the Goldie's because we are not buying a chiller.

It is starting to get cold at night up here. I would say it is almost time to bring them in...

lol where i live "cool at night" in the summer means it gets down out of the 90's. If it's below 80 though it might be time to think about bringing the bettas in. Esp in a deeper pond as it would take longer to warm up in the morning.
