    Not sure about the goodeids but A. iberus should do ok. I say ‘should’ as I’ve no idea how the lower summer temperature in the UK might affect their life cycle. Having seen them spawning here in spring and autumn though I suspect it might just be growth rate that shows any change.

    Cheers Matt would you put them in a deep 30inchx30 inch or shallow 12inch tub x48 inch

    Either or I guess. All mine are in less than 12″ of water.

    After getting several reports of Goodeids outside for the summer not been too successful,i will use tubs in the greenhouse for growing fry on

    The A. transgrediens seem particularly tolerant of lower temperatures and mine were active and breeding before my other fish the last two years. Guessing A. iberus will be similar.

    Planning an upgrade myself soon so please keep this updated Nigel.

    How about some Macropodus spechti (prev. concolor)? They can even be found in northeast Russia.

    This is strange 2 people have now reccommended Macropodus to me in as many days.unfortunately i want to keep working with my Goodeids and Aphanius with the odd other fish creeping in occasionally
    but never say never

    Try the A. persicus, they are the first ones that start breeding here, even at 9 ÂșC last year.

    A. vladykovi should do ok as well, they take very low temperatures.

    Not sure about A. fasciatus, not entirely happy with them, although they stand all year round outdoors here.

    Never had good results with goodeids, our summer is far too hot for them.

    Good luck!
