    Small cold water species of pleco or catfish

    Hi I have a ten gallon tank with a black moore goldfish and 2 black skirt tetras in it but want something that will clean the tank. So what kind of small species can live in a tank with no heater? Thanks

    Adding more to an already over stocked tank will not help clean it up

    Many small bristlenose plecos come from Uruguay and Argentina, and can handle low temps. I keep some in an unheated tank with Gymnogeophagus.

    The above posters are right though, a moor in a 10 gal alone is pushing it, unless you over filter or do lots of partial water changes.

    The Moore is only 2 inches and I do partial water changes daily and full water changes every other week

    A small bristlenose should work with that regime.
