I am planning to keep the 20+ Tanichthys albonubes juveniles from end of January outside in an old plastic sandbox, which is currently housing massive quantities of mosquito larvae. But I will wait another month or so: temperatures are still quite low during the night - this morning my car indicated only 5 °C...

Here the usual, various species of fundulus, aphanius, austrolebias also jenynsia, australoheros, ellasoma, macropodus, goodeids, xiphophorus variatus and the valencias. Some aphanius and fundulus are all readyoutside despite night frost last night, but no problem, they overwinter indoor at 3 - 7c all winter. This spring i have also added some oryzias from a japanese population, they should be winter hardyin germany.
Here 4 tubs are set up with more waiting for the finishing touch when time allows.
One tub already contains Elassoma evergladei and two others are occupid by Aphanius (anatoliae and mento - thank you Nordravn!).
Later Xiphophorus variatus, evelynar, milleri and maybe maculatus, pygmaeus or nigrensis will follow.

Yeah, still a bit nippy at times yet. I like to wait until there's a warm spell forecast so they the fsih have time to adjust to fluctuating temperatures.
Had Lepthoplosternum spawn outside on a suntrap patio, had Austrolebias last three years by moving them outside for half the year, and there some Gymnogeophagus that I took back to a shop after keeping them outside for a few months looked so good they sold the same day.
Rathbuni tetras look superb, as do Black Widow tetras.
Shortly I'll be taking back some China Barbs that I gave to someone for their aquarium over Winter.
Cherry Shrimps really show how red they can be when kept outside as well, all that algae!
