    If you reduce the tank temperature to no lower than 65 f (about 2 degrees every 4-6 hours) and reduce feeding to once or twice a week that should buy you some time (months) in saving up for a bigger tank. The fish will grow slower due to reduce metabolism, and reduced food. I would still keep up with the water changes, and not let the ntirates get over 20ppm (being from the carp family does have the advantages of allowing it to thrive in colder water).

    I would only allow the drop in temperature after you have cycled the tank.

    Hey that's some good advice, thanks.
    I'm just a little worried about my vampire shrimp at that temperature, he thrives in tropical temperatures and is a little delicate.

    Move him to another tank?

    Yeah I do, I'm just a little worried about overstocking it since I now have:
    1 molly
    3 neon tetras
    2 African dwarf frogs
    1 apple snail
    all in the same 10g tank. I'm monitoring the water chemistry and trying to pick up on behaviors to make sure it isn't already over stocked, but I'll keep the possibility of moving the shrimp in mind, thanks.

    If you're over filtered (at least 2X) on that 10G, it would be just fine to add the shrimp
