It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Winter

I checked the temp in my tank when I got home & it is at 58F which I think is way below what it should be. It doesn't get much warmer in the day as sunlight never reaches my room. I heard goldfish can live in cold temperatures but I wasn't completely sure about it. Should I get a heater?

That is a little on the cold side for fancies. It will slow their metabolism quite a lot and they could get digestion problems I think.

I would get a heater and very slowly raise the temp.

Try to do a couple of degrees daily - until you are up to about 68-70F.

This will also be better for your filter bacteria, they get sleepy in colder temps :)
