    I know that goldfish can live in tropical conditions. So can I put a black moor in my 55? It's community tank and all fish would be compatible. Would it be to hard to feed it and too much of a hassle? Opinions wanted!
    We can be as honest as we are ignorant. If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.

    Temp is 77 about to be 75 :) Still haven't brought it all the way back down from when I had ick for ever ago. LOL

    Nitrate stays at ten but does get lower at times. I am pretty religious about water changes. Though I have to do more than once a week because the ph out of the tap is so much different before it ages. 6.0 vs 7.4

    The only fish I have that are even an 'if' are bleeding heart tetra and the reason I call them ifs .... is because they are ravenous little things that eat like crazy! The rest of my stock are cardinals and some black neons and a pair of GBR and Bolivians whom don't bother anyone.

    They were doing okay with it before they got ick. hmmm Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll leave it where it is then. I did forget about the GBR needing slightly warmer water. The bolivians do well in water up to 85! But I don't think everyone would appreciate that. LOL

    Okay fish guy.... how about 78 for the black moor?

    Well my my. I went over to check the temp and apparently it is 79 in there. Hmm thought it was 77

    No the other fish had ick and I thought It was gone and started taking the salt out and that's when I got the rams. Anyway, I will keep the temp up. Thanks for the reminder. My poor rams. I was going to forget all about them! Bad fish mommy. Will you be my fish god parents Sharon?

    I have tried to keep moors with tropicals many years ago [didn't know any better ,the warm temps needed for tropicals is in conflict with the cooler temps needed for moors.Its not that they are a cold water fish but they definitely do much better and are less prone to fin and eye problems when kept cool.They are also not the most competitive fish in the tank and there inability to keep up with your other fish would be an issue for them when it comes to feeding time.
