The 10 Best Tropical Aquarium Fish for Beginners

Choosing which fish to put in your fresh water aquarium can be a tough decision, especially if it's only your first or second time owning fish as pets. Stocking your aquarium must be done with care, because you're dealing with the lives of animals, and spending your hard earned money to do so. Be sure before you start stocking your aquarium to not only know all the necessary information about your home tank, but to know the specifications of any fish you are interested in putting in it.

This is a list of beginner level tropical fresh water fish and their broad specifications to help you get a better idea of what you'll be dealing with when you put together the array of life that will call your aquarium home - I hope it makes your time choosing your fish friends easier!

Bloodfin Tetra
Tetras are always easy to care for, and the small schooling bloodfin tetra is no exception. These fish eat most varieties of flakes, as well as brine shrimp and small live food. Bloodfin tetras are best kept with at least 2 or three of the same fish (preferably more around 6), and they should have plenty of room to swim with their small school, adding to the beautiful background ambiance of your tank.

Cherry Barb
Another "background" fish, these simple to care for freshwater cuties are red in color and contrast well with other schooling silver-bodied fish when put in larger, more accommodating tanks. These fish are also better in small schooling groups, and like to swim and chase each other about playfully. They're a delightful addition to your home's aquarium family.

Serpae Tetra
Another tetra, the Serpae is less picky when it comes to what it eats than it's smaller cousins. Their body shape is round and flat at the same time, and their bodies can shimmer beautifully against the water when put with adequate and safe tank lighting. These fish should not be kept alone, and should always have one or more of the same variety of fish to school with, as their temperament changes when they are alone.
