:lol: Just for the use of the general population here who want to keep Gudgeons, a chiller is NOT required. I have a pair of Purple spotted gudgeons (very attractive fish) about 10 peacock Gudgeons, also very attractive, all in normal temp tanks in my home which is kept at about 70-72 degrees year round. These fish have been here for over 2 years with no noticeable problems. Although they do seem to like shorts and tank tops so maybe they are a little warm for their taste but i wouldnt advise folks they needed high cost equipment when thats not the case. Everything you read elsewhere on the web is Not FACT. :)

i was more curious as to whether i could keep our native gudgeon in a tank and i know you are all trying to help, but our natural river water is quite chilly compared to a fish tank envioroment. as i stated i dont have the money for a chiller, lack of space too comes in to play also. i wouldnt want to keep a fish indoors just for selfish reasons . it has to be happy in the tank and if im unable to keep the temp down its going to suffer and thats the last thing i want..

You still havent told us what species it is you would like to keep :) If i knew that it would be easier to help you out. Also you can make a chiller reasonably easy, with a small size dorm room type refridge,and a length of tubing with a powerhead. Ive added the process in the DIY section if youd like to read. If i can help you any other way please feel free to ask :fishing:

I certainly understand size restraints due to maybe the tank youre able to provide for it....BUT, when someone tells me i can no longer look or plan or dream of a fish i want, Then its time to give it up. So that having been said, never give up just put that one on the back burner for awhile, and move on to your next dream fish :fishing: and when you figure out what that is come back here and talk and we will try to figure out a way for you to have it :) and you just keep doing that til you get old and useless like me LOL
