Thai goldfish and temps

Do thai goldfish require a heater and higher temps? After all, these fish were bred and born in a country where the temps are high.
If we keep them in the mid 60's Fahrenheit, would that be detrimental?

Yes and no.  They can be kept cooler, but in my experience generally all fancies really do better at 74-78 degrees F.  I’ve seen better behavior, less infections and decay of finnage, and more breeding behavior.  Now some of that is the sped up metabolism that results from the warmer water; but for disease resistance at least I’ve personally had much better success with the close to tropical temperatures, including fancies born in the US.
