Are you thinking of purchasing an aquarium? If you are, ask yourself this question?
Do you know the type of fish you have to buy for your new aquarium?
Did you know that you are the one that determines whether keeping the aquarium is going to be an expense or not by the choices you are going to make? You have to know the necessary facts before you indulge on this task.
There are basically two types of fish aquarium, the saltwater and the fresh water aquarium. Consider the maintenance that will be needed when making your choice.
The type of fish that you are going to put into your aquarium will differ. Some fishes have a better chance of survival in saltwater than in fresh water and vise versa.
For your fresh water aquarium fish, tropical fish are very colorful and display an array of beauty in your aquarium. They are interesting to watch and feed; therefore they are the most popular.
However, tropical fishes have a better chance of survival when they live in warm water. Hence if you want to keep them, you will have to foot the extra cost of heating up your aquarium.
Weigh your options and see if it’s worth it. But you should know that despite the extra expense people still give it preference because of its characteristics. So if you ask me, good things never come cheap.
Fish that you can get that do not need water heating are gold fish and tetra fish species. They are good for a start as they reduce start up cost and setting.
Get these when they are still very young and there is no trace of failing health. Watch them grow in comfort in their new home.
If you want fish that require a heated fish tank, danios and cichlids are recommended. There are different types of danios fish such as zebra danios and giant danios.
Cichlids are also a good choice for your new aquarium. However they have quite a temper so if you are going to choose them they have to be the only ones in the tank. Or else, they are going to harass and bite the little fishes.
Well there are so many other options as to which fishes to introduce to your aquarium. But I have given you a glimpse of the best fishes you can get. So what are you waiting for, go and fill up your aquarium.
