Beautiful tropical fish species

10 Incredibly Beautiful Fishes

Ahli MAnimals

As an avid aquarist and ichthyologist, I have been fascinated by fish for quite some time now. I thought I’d share some of the more beautiful species that I know. These are in no particular order, since beauty is, of course, in the eye of the beholder.

First off, cichlids is pronounced “Sick-Lids”. African Cichlids are fish found in Three lakes in Africa; Malawi, Tanganyika and Victoria. The Victorian Species are less numerous and usually less colorful than the others. These fish usually grow to about six or seven inches long, with the exception of the Frontosoa Species, which grow to about twelve to fourteen inches in length.Mez-D8-Bullethead Parrotfish-Chlorurus Sordidus 2 irement being that they have water with a higher pH level and plenty of hiding spots (they can be quite aggressive!). There are also species of Cichlids that live in the Amazon Basin, but these get much larger and are much more aggressive than their African relatives.

Named Parrotfish because of their calcareous bird-like beaks. Parrotfish use these beaks to crush and eat the small invertebrates that live in coral.Blue Hippo Tang r calcium. Like Cichlids, There are many individual species of Parrotfish, with varying degrees of color and patterns.

Ever since “Finding Nemo” came out, these fish are usually referred to as “Dory Fish” by children. Tangs belong to a family of fish called Surgeonfish, who possess a small, retractable calcareous blade toward their tail fin. This blade is mainly used for defense, they extract it and rub against an attacker, in an effort to fend it off.

A small angelfish, usually available at your local pet store, they really are a fish one needs to see in person to have a full appreciation of their color. These fish are usually keepable in any marine aquarium and are very hardy.

A close relative of the Coral Beauty, the Flame Angel has some of the boldest color of any fish I’ve seen. As with the Coral Beauty, these fish are usually easily available and affordable, but from my experience are a bit more fickle than the Coral Beauty.

Not my experience, in fact quite the opposite!

I've had many different freshwater tropical fish. African cichlids are among the most aggressive to other fish and each other. But male bettas are programmed to be aggressive to each other only, but are rather docile around other species. In fact they can get picked on and don't put up a fight at all. Many a male betta fish ends up having much of their beautiful diaphanous fins nipped off bite by bite by other aggressive fish. :-(
