I`m likely going to be moving my 10 gallon into my basement. It`ll be heavily planted (as much as I can get in a 10 gallon) There`ll be no heater in the tank and it stays quite cool in my basemant. I was wondering if there were any commercially available coldwater fish that would live happily in a 10 gallon.

How are shrimp at handling cooler temps? (60ish)

A half dozen might be stretching it, but White Cloud mountain minnows or a couple small native fish like darters are the only things that come to mind for a ten.

Keep in mind that both of those are tropical fish, not cold water.
