Aggressive tropical fish Breeds

Tropical Fish

So far we've covered quite a few fish. However, there are certainly more. The fish covered in this section are not well suited for the beginner's aquarium for a number of reasons. Some may be highly sensitive to fluctuating water quality conditions, a frequent problem in a new aquarium. Others may require special water conditions, such as softer water or brackish water. The beginner should not try to provide this type of habitat without acquiring some experience.

Finally, there are a number of species that are not socially compatible with the peaceful community tank. This group includes large carnivorous fish that eat smaller fish, territorial fish that do not tolerate trespassing, and mature fish that display aggression and combative behavior during spawning or pre-spawning periods. In short, you have to know what you're doing if you want to handle one of these bad boys.

Many of these species are offered by the pet store and may even be promoted by the dealer because they are smaller juveniles that he considers “harmless.” Don't be fooled by this argument. These fish grow fast and develop aggressive attitudes early in life. The small flake-eating baby will become a neon-eating carnivore in a matter of months.

Do not buy fish that require special water conditions. Beginners are usually not equipped to handle these requirements. These fish may live for days or weeks in your tank, but chronic stress will set in, and its immune response will fail. Ultimately, the fish will die due to disease.

As a novice, you must avoid the following fish. Here is a brief description of those species that should not be included in your community aquarium. As you develop your talents as an aquarist, you will expand your capabilities, and be able to keep some of the more sensitive species of fish. You may even want to establish an aquarium of “compatible” aggressive species or a species tank. As you will notice, many of these fish are cichlids.
