Will this tank work with goldfish?
Hi some of you may already know this from my other threads, but i "rescued" a very overstocked 10 gallon tank. 2 goldfish, 3 neon tetra, a baby pleco and 2 amano shrimp. I have a 40 gallon cycling with a HOB filter and decent sized sponge filter. I know that goldfish are considered coldwater, and tetras and pleco are tropical, but could i make this work? I would put the 2 goldfish, 3 tetras (adding another 6 maybe) the pleco (until it gets too large) and shrimp. What temperature would be the least stressful for all fish? A tad cold for the tetras/pleco or a tad warmer for the goldfish? The pleco and tetras have been through a lot and I really don't want to donate them to the store. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you.
