    ok, ive been told that the would live in coldwater. also, are coolie loaches able to. cause i had a coolie that live in my brothers tank for a while that didnt have a heater. then he didnt want it so gave it to my friend in his cold water tank untill it jumped out.

    There is one kind of loach that does pretty good in coldwater tanks, but I can't remember what it is. Give me a minute to look it up.

    Honestly speaking, I doubt bristlenose can survive long in a coldwater tank.. Best of luck..

    Hillstream loaches are so cool! But they need HIGHLY oxygenated tanks and can be very hard to care for. I've tried to keep them four times and never had success. Getting them to eat is very difficult so make sure you have tons of algae in the tank before purchasing them. In my neck of the woods they are about $10 each, so not a cheap fish to have dying on you.
