Tropical Fish Compatibility - Tips You Need To Know

tetras cardinal xs 19751135Tropical fish compatibility is often overlooked by the novice aquarist. By learning which tropical fish are compatible you'll be better equipped to have a successful aquarium!

You do not need to be an animal expert to know that putting a mouse in a cage with a python is a bad idea, unless the mouse is intended to be the python's next meal - and the same model applies to tropical fish! Some species of fish are more aggressive and predatory than others and some fish have a naturaly calm temperament which makes them ideal for a community tank. Before you select the fish for your aquarium, brush up on the basics of tropical fish compatibility so you can be sure that the fish you choose to stock your tank will be able to coexist peacefully.

Categories of Tropical Fish

Species of freshwater tropical fish can be divided into three categories based on their ability to get along with other fish. Community fish is the largest of these. Many of the smaller species of tropical fish including Danios, Guppies, Swordtails, Platies, Tetras and Mollies belong to this category. These fish generally do not grow much larger than two to three inches and thrive best when kept with at least three to five of their own species.cichlid xs 13569664 fish tend to get along well with other community fish and, because of their diminutive size, can be kept in smaller tanks.

Semi-aggressive species like Gouramis, Barbs, Eels, Sharks and Loaches make up the second category of tropical fish. These species tend to grow larger than most community fish and, thus, should be kept in tanks no smaller than 29 gallons in capacity. The species belonging to this category, especially the males, may display aggression toward other fish in the tank and often become territorial. If you choose to keep semi-aggressive fish in your tank, it is wise to balance out the tank with a number of peaceful community fish. When mixing community fish with semi-aggressive species, try to avoid any major size differences or the larger semi-aggressive species may bully your smaller community fish.

Goldfish don't need heat

by biclighter

So that is a bit curious. probably not a goldfish.
here is a list of tropical fish by name.
click away and see if you can find out what kind of orange fish you have. could be a platty or molly? if it is a platty or molly and you get it some friends, you should have 2 females to 1 male, to keep the dynamics going smooth. BUT those guys are livebearers (they have actual fish babies instead of laying eggs) and livebearers are very prolific breeders. anyways, let's figure out what that orange fish is and we'll go from there.
