The one I had from Florida were just wintered-in-basement tempseratures 65
F. The lights are on 15 hours per day min. When it warmed up in the spring
they spawned. Just a point I feed fish heavy, even in my cold tanks this
morning 48 F the fish eat as well as-in-70 F. The only time the cold seemed
to slow them down was once when the tanks got down to 35 F they were not
moving-in-that temp. but-in-40F just as active as summer.
