    A great Wiki article with lots of fish options too

    An article on keeping temperate fish with tropical fish and some of the physical challenges posed to the fish (interesting article really about goldfish being kept in warmer waters)

    The first article Cory posted was one of the first I read when I started getting more seriously into fishkeeping, and even if you aren't into cold water fish, I would recommend reading it. It really made me think about how I use heating in my tanks, and while now I heat them all, it has always made me want to keep an unheated tank with some compatible species.

    Just so that I am contributing something, I found this species (mentioned in one of the articles cory posted) to be very attractive, and something I might have to shoot for in the future. http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/aphanius-mento/ Interesting that it's from Turkey, not an area you often (or ever?) see in the hobby. I am trying to find more info on small European/Northern African fish for the aquarium, are there many or do most of them get too large?

    I just read the article on aphanius mento and I have to say my mind is blown... 2 degrees? Crazy talk! The whole aphanius group is very interesting. Has anyone kept these fish around here?
