although some people can get them going at lower temperatures, there are other things that should be met too- GH lower than 10, PH lower than 7.6.
if you can get wild caught ones these demands arent as necessary, but if you get a pair that have come from a fish farm in the czech republic that are fed hormones and antibiotics...then these needs have to be met or they wont last two seconds.
You may be right, but how would I know when the whole internet tells me 24 degrees! My ph is about 7.0. GH not sure.
