Finding Fish for Your New Aquarium

There are tons of different types of fish that one is able to acquire for their custom aquarium today. A budding aquarist can do research on Google and be overwhelmed at all the types of aquatic life to keep as pets in a custom fish tank.

We wanted to share some suggestions for fish to support your aquarium hobby….

Black Tetras -These are schooling fish, and should be kept in a group of 4 or more so that one does not dominate and tire out the others. They easily adapt to a new setup, and have big appetites.

 


White Clouds - These fish are good for smaller tanks. They are very peaceful and make a pretty display against a dark background in your tank.

 

Platies - These fish are fascinating and captivating to watch. They are live-bearers, which means they give birth to live offspring instead of laying eggs. They are easily bred in captivity and they come in an assortment of colors.

 

Clown Fish - Remember Finding Nemo? The characters Nemo and Merlin were modeled after either the “Percula” or the "Ocellaris" clown fish. These two species are nearly indistinguishable to the untrained eye. There are many other species of clown fish that look quite different though. In recent years, captive bred/raised specimens have become widely available to hobbyists and are an environmentally friendly choice for your saltwater aquarium.

 

Of course, this is just a short list of fish to consider for your aquarium.  Call Diamond Aquatics today so that we can help you find the best pets for your tank.
