  1. Default Small cold water fish

    Hello all,
    I have aquired a new 30 gallon and would like to stock it with some cold water fish. However, I would like to avoid goldfish as they produce alot of ammonia and most out-grow 30 gallon tanks. My knowledge on cold water fish species is lacking. I'm looking for fish on the smaller size. The only ones I've come accross are sickle-backs and hillstream loaches. If anyone could list some other species I'd appreciate it.

    White cloud minnows are pretty cool. I've seen those before, but I always assumed they were tropical. Thanks! Keep them coming!

    Along with whiteclouds which Phil mentioned, there are some really cool native species of darters you can keep.

    You could also add some dojo loaches for the bottom.

    I would probably stay away from hillstream loaches, their tank needs really fast flowing water, so really the tank has to be suited around them.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    That depends on the species. I have a group of Sewellia in a 20 high, filtration is 2 aquaclear hob's (200 and a mini) and an air-driven sponge filter. Tank also houses 7 LDA-08's and loads of cherry shrimp.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    Is there a reason to try to stick to only coldwater fish especially since you don't have a particular fish you are trying to keep? I think I'd simply add a heater and be able to get a whole variety of fish.
