Freshwater Aquarium fish About

The Humane Society of the United States

Freshwater aquarium fish like goldfish make great pets, but it’s important to set up the right environment for your finned friend’s new home. We’ll help you prepare for your fish’s new life with your family so that things go swimmingly for both of you.

When you're ready to bring your new fish home, it's important to know what water temperature, food, filters, and other essential items are needed to give your fish a happy, healthy life. A plain, empty bowl simply won't suffice. And remember—wild fish should never be caught and kept as pets.

  • Make sure your fish's tank is more than just a bowl. istockphoto

I have a live bamboo plant in the aquarium from petco. Can I put my betta in tomorrow, and monitor the ammonia levels, and do water changes if it gets too high? How else can I cycle it if I don't put the betta in there? Shouldn't the live plant help/have good bacteria?
If I can't put the betta in there tomorrow, and I should cycle with a dead shrimp or something can I keep the betta alive in the little tub while the tank...
