Hi all, I have set up a thermocol box in my garden for growing plants about two weeks ago. The box is in shade, and the plants are growing nicely. The box size is 24 x 18x 12 in ( ~84 Ltrs). The water has cleared up. However, there is the problem of mosquito breeding in a garden shade. So, I was thinking of adding fishes.
The most common answer will be guppies, but I doubt the guppies will survive the winter?!
So, people who keep goldfishes, can you advice if I can keep 1 goldfish in the box? There is no filtration, and it is densely planted ( vallisneria, ejeria, sag, etc). . I have checked the temperature, it remains quite cool even in this summer noon. Any other fishes that can be kept if goldfish is not possible?
What about Puntius, gouramis or snakeheads? These are native here. Also, will shrimps survive and eat insects?

U can add mollies they eat mosquito larvae plus they are mouth breathers. No need to put any filters or anything but change the water partially at least once in a 15- 20 day's. They even breed n increase in number.
Gold fish are bigger so attract predators like cats. Gold fish are also messy, they poo a lot.
