  1. Default Increasing water temp?

    0 Not allowed!

    I currently have 8 golden cloudes in a fairly small coldwater (room temp) tank, but am replacing it with a 20 Gal in the next week or so.

    I know fish don't like changes in temperature, but would a slow gradual increase still harm them?

    I'm looking to eventually run my tank at about 22 degrees. Will I be able to put my minnows in a room temp tank and gradually increase the temp to this without distressing them too much?

    Slow increases in water temp are not stressfull especially if done over a period of 12 hrs or so. I've not kept minnows in tanks so I don't know what max temps they are good with.

    Ok thanks, I'm in no hurry to do it so was planning on maybe a degree every few days until I'm at 22, I believe minnows are good between 18-26 so 22 should be fine for them.
