 Hi  Guys
 
 I  have  asked  this  question  at  a  lot  of  forums  but  have  been  unable  to  get  a  convincing  answer.
 
 Goldfish  are  classified  as  coldwater  fishes  temp  range  15-25C,  and  this  is  given  as  primary  reason  why  they  cannot  be  kept  with  other  tropical  fishes  as  tropical  fishes  need  warmer  water  at  around  30C.
 
 Now  I  live  in  a  warm  country  â€œIndia”  where  throughout  the  year    average  temp  is  28-30C  except  for  2-3  winter  months.  There  are  a  lot  of  people  in  this  country  who  keep  goldfish.  Goldfish  is  one  of  the  most  popular  fishes.
 
 This  means  that  this  fish  not  only  survives  but  breeds  like  hell  in  average  water  temperatures  of  around  30C.  I  don’t  think  that  anybody  uses  chillers  in  their  aquariums  or  ponds.
 
 In  light  of  above  I  have  following  questions
 
 What  is  the  ideal  temp  for  goldfish
 
 Why  cant  goldfish  be  kept  with  other  tropical  fishes  if  goldfish  can  thrive  at  30C.

 most  tropical  fish  are  too  fast  or  too  aggressive  for  gold  fish....also  i  think  the  temp  in  our  country  leaving  the  3  months  of  summer  is  around  26...i  think  its  best  to  keep  gold  fish  in  a  species  tank  only..

 Sandeep,  it  is  not  as  simple  as  temperature  alone...
 
 1.  Many  (most)  parts  of  the  country  do  not  have  sustained  temperatures  in  the  30's  for  more  than  a  month  or  two.
 
 2.  These  temperatures  are  ambient  air  temperatures.  The  water  temperature  will  be  a  couple  of  degrees  cooler.  If  the  fish  are  kept  indoors,  the  water  temperature  will  be  still  lower.
 
 3.  The  most  commonly  available  goldfish  strains  are  incredibly  hardy.
 
 4.  Goldfish  will  live  for  decades...  how  many  30  year  old  goldfish  have  you  seen  in  India?  Higher  temperatures  will  affect  lifespan.
 
 5.  And  as  toomanyfish  pointed  out,  many  of  the  fancier  strains  are  too  slow  to  compete  with  tropical  fish.

 Goldfish  have  been  bred  in  tropical  countries  for  ages  now!  They  are  probably  well  adapted  to  our  conditions.

 I  have  goldfish  in  an  outdoor  pond  along  with  some  koi  but  if  you  have  a  big  tank  I  don't  see  why  they  can't  be  kept  with  other  fish,  it  may  be  ok  to  give  it  a  try.  Let  us  know  how  you  get  on.

 In  one  of  my  55g  tank  I  have  goldfish  along  with  two  4"  iridescent  shark    (tiger  shark)and  so  far  they  are  coexisting  peaceful.
 I  know  that  tiger  sharks  get  huge  in  size  5ft.  They  will  be  shifted  in  due  course  in  a  pond.
 For  some  time  I  even  had  silver  dollars  with  them  but  then  they  were  shifted.
 From  my  observations  I  can  say  that  if  you  have  have  goldfish  in  your  tank  your  options  for  mixing  and  matching  get  very  limited.  Also  it  gets  very  rough  on  plants  even  tough  plants  like  amazon  sword  are  not  spared.

 gold  fishs  are  cute,  peace  ful,  bare  tank  loving  fishessss
 
 one  should  not  mix  them  with  other  breeds  
 
 some  mix  tiger  shark  with  gold  but  these  tigers..  chase  the  golds  or  disturb  them  a  lot...
 
 they  are  also  good  adaptor  to  gradual  chang  in  the  environment...
