The simple answer is No. Distilled water has had all the life giving impurities removed. Before using distilled water you would need to add specific quantities of minerals etc depending upon the species of fish you want to keep.

no tropical fish need warm water

You should not use distilled water in a fish tank as it is missing vital minerals. Distilled water is basically water collected from steam

the temperature of a tropical fish tank really should be about 26 degrees and 72 Fahrenheit. if you were thinking of buying tropical fish you would need a heater this is because most tropical fish are from America and Australia where it is hot so it will be hot water

It depends on the size of the tank and whether you want cold water or tropical fish. I currently have guppies and mollies living together in a small tropical tank.

No, tropical fish belong in warm water; placing them in a cold-water tank would most likely send them into shock and could result in death.

Usually there is a heater that warms the tank on purpose.

No. The temperature variation will kill one or the other. (Too warm for cold water fish, too cold for tropical fish)

None, goldfish are cold water fish, so having a tropical fish as a tank-mate just wouldn't work because tropical fish need to live in warm water.

How can a fish be a"cold water tropical fish"? "Tropical fish" means the fish come from tropical waters and do not do well (In some cases die) if kept in water that is too cold for them. Goldfish are Coldwater fish and need their water around 50F to 65F. So no, they will not do well in water that is constantly between 70F and 80F where most Tropical fish need their water to be.

no goldfish are not tropical fish but you can put them in the same tank just turn down the temp and relese them after there use to the waterNo they are fresh water

Please rephrase the question! - How much does a tropical fish tank cost? - How much space does a tropical fish tank take? - How much maintenance time does a tropical fish tank need? also it deponds on which size u r talking about. i have recently bought a tropical fish tank and its 95 litre , it cost me £100.

No! marine fish are salt water fish and tropicals are fresh water fish, this cannot be changed.

Pet Tropical Fish live well in a warm water tank with a few plants and a couple hiding places.

Depends on the type of tropical fish you have in your tank, the temperature can be from 70 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

tap water+a little anti-clohrine=your answer

No, the tropical fish will probably eat it

its for tropical fish and salt water fish. they need to have warm water to survive cause were they live is really warm waters

It is not recommended. Goldfish are cold water fish while tropical fish are warm water fish. Also, goldfish need to be fed more often than most tropical fish and they produce elevated amounts of waste which can be detrimental to fish not accustomed to it.

it depends where theirs water in the tank with fish or empty -tank filled with water- when the tank is full of water only use a alge remove magnet or do a water Change - 25 to 50% -not filed with water just use a damp cloth DO NOT USE ANY CHEMICALS

You would not put tropical fish in a tank of cold water because the live in warm climates and need a temperature of 24 - 26/28 degrees Celsius to survive.

U buy tropical fish and get a background and then that is how u can do that

Well, the correct answer is no. But when I kept my tank at room temperature, I had no problems.

Guppies are tropical fish and like it 70 to 76 degrees Fahrenheit
