We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level.

      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.

      A small bristlenose should work with that regime.
