They may be fine now but what will happen is either the cold water species or the tropical species will suffer and die early. My guess is the goldfish will die in a few years and you will still think it was a success because they all lived a few years together. When actually the goldfish shoulda lived for 20 years. There is less than optimal conditions for your fish in your tank... That is FACT

Most don't live 10 because idiots like you own them, house them wrong, and generally think it's ok....

People live in the streets, people live in prisons, yes it can be done nobody is denying it. But it's not ideal is it? Get off your high horse and do some research!

Ok 15 years. If looked after properly. I don't keep goldfish not sure the exact age but I know people keep them 10-20 years no problem. Most people like yourself, with limited knowledge, think because they lived 1,2,3 even 5 years before death that it was a complete success. When actually the fish died early due to being under stress it's entire life. By the way Tish lived for 43 years and Fred lived 41.
