Top Ten aggressive tropical fish

Top 10 tips-Introducing new tropical fish

It is important that the process of purchasing new tropical fish and adding them to your aquarium should be followed thoroughly. This is to make sure the new fish settle in quickly and safely.

A few guidelines to follow:

1. Make sure the water in your aquarium is healthy before buying and adding new tropical fish. If the water quality it not very good, the mixture of poor water quality coupled with the stress of transportation can cause health problems for new tropical fish. Therefore it is important to test the water for ammonia and nitrite using a test kit or else you can take a sample to your local aquatics store, where they will happy to test the water for you.

2. When purchasing new fish, it is always prudent to ask for advice about new tropical fish, in order to ensure they will be compatible and happy in your aquarium. Certain tropical fish can be very aggressive and territorial which can upset the balance of an aquarium.

3. It is also wise to only purchase healthy, active fish. If there are quite a few unhealthy or dead fish in the tank, this can point to problems.

4. The majority of aquatic stores will pack your fish in a plastic bag containing oxygen and water. This is far more beneficial than simply transporting the fish in water.

5. The store should also put the fish in a paper bag or similar in order to keep the fish in the dark thus reducing stress. For long journeys, preferably place the bag in a polystyrene box, or else whatever else that will maintain the temperature of the water.

6. It is important that you take your new fish home straight away, as longer journeys inevitably will cause increased stress.

7. When introducing the new fish, preferably turn the lights off in the aquarium. Then leave off for 24 hours in order to reduce stress.

8. It is also important to stabilise the temperature of the new fish before introducing them into the aquarium. To get your new fish used to the temperature of the aquarium, float the plastic bag on the surface of the water for 15 minutes.


Freshwater aquarium

by sage9x

A saltwater aquarium is going to be a massive time suck and a money pit. I advise against it. I really enjoyed my freshwater aquarium, but I never really had a problem with hard water. They make water conditioners for that, though.
I really enjoyed my freshwater aquarium. It was not that expensive, and if you get the right kind of fish, they are hard to kill. I stuck with Rafael catfish(hard to find the spotted kind), senegal bichirs(some people call them dinosaur eels), chichlids(super aggressive), and oscars. Don't forget to also include an algea eater(like a pleco), and several mystery snails

Adult Corydoras Catfish to a good home.

by Manticor892

I have a twenty five gallon tall planted aquarium and I bought a tiny little cory cat not realizing at the time that they grow to be ~3 inches long. I have plenty of room in my tank but honestly my cat has become too aggressive to other bottom feeders like algae eaters for me to keep him. The aggression is probably due to the size of my tank and my oversight. He has never been aggressive to mid or high water community fish. I am happy to give him away to someone who has a good size freshwater aquarium. I can provide a picture if necessary but a quick Google of corydoras will give you a good idea
