Who uses goldfish and what exactly do they do to the water in your goat trough?
We offer good quality pellets and veggies like lettuce, peas, and aquatic plants.Do you give any food, how do they do on the cold nights
That is why we only have three in a 1000g trough, with plenty of algae. They wouldn't be there if they hadn't been there when we moved in.Goldfish are messy and I don't understand why some people put them in their troughs. It would be better for the livestock to just get their trough cleaned regularly instead of relying on goldfish to clean up the algae. The algae is a lot safer and healthier than having goldfish and goldfish waste in their drinking water.
Well, darn. You had to go and rain on my parade, didn't you? I was draining the pit of the irrigation pump this fall, found a catfish in it and dumped him in the big tire tank in the back pens. Now I find that he has likely frozen. Bummer!To keep "muck" to a minimum, I had a catfish in my pond - however THEY cannot tolerate freezing temps.
Most catfish are tropicals or semi tropical. Unless your water doesn't reach below 60, I don't think he'll make itWell, darn. You had to go and rain on my parade, didn't you?

If he is a wild fish, then yes, he very well could survive the winter. I am mostly talking about the pet store catfish people buy and toss out in pondsI could be wrong here, but this particular catfish is a wild catfish that came out of the North Platte River and I highly doubt he is a tropical fish.
