What are good coldwater fish for a species only tank ?

I want a species only tank , but I don't want to have to buy a heater , so what are some cool , easy , and cheap fish that can be without a heater ? Oh and it's going to be a 10 gallon tank

you could put a flag fish in there. their temp needs are 66-72 degrees so a little cooler than tropical so you would probably be good. guppies do fine in colder tanks some people prefer putting guppies in a cold tank because it makes them grow slower. weathered loaches do good in coldwater but im not sure about recommended tank size for that one

You could try to add some fathead minnows or a single paradise fish

Weather loaches are lovely, but I think they need a slightly bigger tank A paradise fish could be put in coldwater 10G though, on it's own. A shoal of danios, GCMM's, WCMM's or a borneo sucker (although they need a powerhead) could also go in there Some shops also do platys, guppies and rosy barbs in coldwater too
