Can a Bristol shubunkin (2 inch long excluding tail) live in a tropical fish tank for 6 weeks. Fish was bought last week and put in 100L tub outside but we have a cold snap (aitr temp 1C). I found him today floating on top and very sluggish. Gold fish bought at same time had died. Shubunkin is now inside in a Tupperware tub and has perked up. Can he room with my tropical fish (temprature76F 24C) until the weather warms up? The alternative is a bucket.
I am experienced with tropical fish, but know nothing abut coldwater fish. I don’t think a disease is involved.
Can I keep this sort of fish outside (they were sold as pond fish) in a 300L tub?
