Is this possible in real life?
Goldfish are coldwater fish and tetras are tropicals. They should not be kept together for the obvious reason of needing different temp's to thrive. But goldfish are also dirty fish that produce copious amounts of waste and ammonia requiring a lot of filtration and WC
's. It is best to keep coldwater fish separate from tropicals. Yes people keep them together but it is a bad situation for all the fish involved. Goldfish kept at higher temps have shorter life spans.
