Can fish die if the water is too cold?

Asked: Gökhan Kara, Last Updated:

If the water temperature in your tank gets higher than 90°F(32°C), your fish may be in danger of dying. Their inability to get sufficient oxygen from the water they live in causes death by suffocation. When the water in a fish tank is too cold, your fish will minimize their movement and may even appear catatonic.
