Most pet fish can handle temperature spikes just like they would in the wild. Even cold water fish (like Goldfish) can cope with elevated temperatures temporarily. Other fish are more sensitive to change and require temperature stability, such as many marine fish and some fresh water Goodeid species.

The more healthy your fish is to begin with, the better they will cope with any stressful situation, including temperature fluctuations. Keeping the environment clean and feeding a natural diet (live, freeze-dried, frozen and Bottom Bites dehydrated fish food) is the basis of a strong, healthy fish.
