Re: NANFA-- cold tolerance of southern fish
Thu, 17 Jul 2003 23:08:13 EDT

I know the Heterandria formosa will be ok.

Last January, they withstood 37 degrees in a 10-gallon aguarium
on my south patio. Now they are very robust in their 87 degree
tank. Lots of babies.

Mimicking the change of seasons seems to help them.

Just try to somehow insure that the temperature drops are not
too rapid.
