Do Fish get cold ?

Report as

Yes that is why they go to the bottom of the lake in winter. The top may freeze but the bottom is warmer.

If we raise tropical fish at home, we have to keep the water warm, maybe 20~25 degree Celsius.

Every type of fish has it's comfort zone. They don't get goosebumps or shiver or "feel" cold. However they can tell the difference between hot and cold. In the antarctic there are fish that live in water that is below 0 degrees C. They have chemicals (besides salt) in their bodies that keeps them unfrozen. So cold to them would make freezer fish sticks out of other fish.

I think their body temperature change with the environment, and when it is getting cold, their body temperature also get cold. Maybe when it is too cold, the fish will just get ill and die.

Birds and mammals are different with fish, their body temperature won't change with the temperature of their environment.

Yes, fish will begin to go into dormancy when their temperature drops.
