Smile What fish to keep in a cold water aquarium?

There has been a change of plan. Now I am only able to have cold water fish. My tank is 40litres and the temperature is around 19 degrees C. I have a black moor already in there. Does anyone have any ideas what else I can put in there. I thought of a few mountain cloud minnows and two bottom algae feeders. Trouble is I don't know what sort will tolerate the colder water and be happy with a average black moor for a tank mate.

40 liters is roughly 10.5 gallons, right? You're already overstocked with a black moor.

There are around 86 gallons of water in my bedroom. I sleep with the fishies. XD

Maybe sunfish (Centrarchidae). Something different. But bigger Tank!

A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end
