Coldwater set-ups are about more than just goldfish!
Blog post written by Andy | 08 March 2013 | Category: Coldwater fish
Lots of people come into the shop who have a coldwater set-up and assume we don't sell coldwater fish. This is because we keep a large variety of fancy goldfish and smaller shoaling fish which customers didn't realise you could keep in a coldwater tank.
If you have a coldwater set-up, don't think you are restricted to just goldfish.... oh no!!
You can get some truly amazing looking fish for a coldwater set-up, fish like Orandas, Ryukin, Lionheads and Fantails. If you want something really different then look at the "goggle eye" fish like Black Moor and Celestial "bubble eyes". We also sell a couple of types of coldwater Loach in both olive green and bright yellow; they look more like coldwater eels than loach! There are even a few that stick on the glass like the Zoolinger Loach and "Chinese Pleco" or "Torpedo fish".
If you have a smaller aquarium or just want a shoal of fish we can also help you. We have several species of fish in lots of different colours and patterns which stay small and are perfect for smaller aquariums. Zebra Danios, Pearl Danios, Gold Zebra Danios, White Cloud Mountain Minnows, Gold Minnows....I really could go on! In fact I have set up a Biorb at the shop full of small coldwater fish which customers say looks amazing.
Over the next few posts I will be highlighting some of these fish and hopefully convincing some of you out there who have a coldwater tank to try something different!!
See you soon.
