The first began to breed these beautiful creatures of the Chinese and Koreans. Then they conquered the Japanese in the 16th century, and in the 17th century the Portuguese and the Dutch brought goldfish to Europe.


Homeland aquarium fish guppies.

In the wild, these creatures inhabit the waters of Brazil, Venezuela, and they are also found in Guiana, on the islands of Trinidad and Barbados. For the first time physicians paid attention to them.

It turns out that these fish eat the larvae of anopheles mosquitoes, significantly reducing the population of these dangerous insects in their region.


Homeland aquarium fish catfish.

Golden catfish, tiger and speckled came to us from South America (Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay). Som shifter appeared in Africa (region of the Congo River).

But there is also a unique transparent fish – glass catfish. These creatures came to Europe from Hindustan, Sumatra and Burma.


Homeland aquarium fish gourami.

This type of fish lives in Southeast Asia (Sumatra, Java, Thailand, Vietnam). The first who began to actively engage in acclimatization gourami, trying to teach them to the climate of Europe, was a French aquarist and naturalist Pierre Carbonier.


Homeland of aquarium fish angelfish.

To see these creatures in the wild, you will have to go to the shores of Orinoco and Amazon, or take a walk along the largest river of Guyana – Essequibo. Angelfish do not like the fast flow and adore the reservoirs covered with thickets.

To describe all the aquarium fish and tell where their distant homeland is located is simply impossible. The number of species of these amazing creatures exceeds 21 thousand!

Those lovers who are interested in this article can find more information in reference books or catalogs. Only on the example of the five most common species, you will easily understand how wide the geography of the origin of the creatures that inhabit your aquariums is.

Among this type of aquarium pets barbs are widely distributed (Sumatran, fiery, dark-haired ruby, tiger), which prefer live food and grow to about 6 centimeters. They are quite unpretentious, but they should be purchased in pairs.

These smallest aquarium pets can not be settled with relatives of veil forms because barbs are able to nibble their fins.

See how live barbs look like.

The presence of the smallest aquarium fish – danio rerio or danio inle will be spectacular. These most active and very playful small schooling fish prefer live or dry food, and their size reaches 3 to 5 centimeters.

Excessive mobility of waterfowl, unfortunately, is dangerous for them. Often, danios jump out of their pool, so only closed aquariums are suitable for growing them.

Talking about the smallest fish for breeding, it is impossible not to mention the well-known neon. These smallest inhabitants of indoor ponds are famous for their amazing color, or rather neon luminous strip, which runs through the whole body.

Like all small fish, neons are schooling, so it is worth to settle them in groups of 10 pieces.

Look at the neon aquarium.

Whatever schooling fish you choose, it is very important to understand that their attractive colorful appearance and cheerfulness depend on you completely. It should be borne in mind that the minimum allowable amount of water for each instance can not be less than 3 liters. Too many water dwellers will transform your source of inspiration and positive into a kind of “communal apartment” and not the best way affect their behavior.

Maintaining an optimal temperature, a weekly water change of 20 percent, the presence of an aquarium filter, aeration and suitable food – these simple procedures will help you enjoy the contemplation of the brilliance of bright colors in the aquarium.

And here’s another great selection of nano fish – look:

Popular and beautiful predators from home aquariums

Place a tank for predatory fish in a calm, well-lit corner. The larger the size of the aquarium, the better for all the fish.

Predatory pets need optimal water parameters, do not tolerate temperature fluctuations, which also provokes aggressive behavior. The parameters of the aquatic environment need to be adjusted by instruments, any changes affect the overall condition.

Filtration, aeration should be permanent.

Decorate the water landscape with snags, caves, stones, clay pots, water broad-leaved plants with a strong root system. The easiest way to contain predators tsihlazom and cancer because of the larger size and simplicity.

Smaller predators require serious training aquarist. Do not immerse hands in the tank with water, treated with cosmetics, or scratched, with bruises.

Carnivorous species can attack a wounded arm and damage it.

Look at the feeding of predatory aquarium fish.

Predatory aquarium fish just will not attack their neighbors or people. If this happens, then there are reasons for it, among them may be:

  • Desire to satisfy your appetite, hunger;
  • The desire to defend their territory;
  • Spawning and protection of offspring;
  • Conflict between males over a female, or dominant behavior;
  • Similar body color, or bright body color of another fish;
  • The small size of the body of neighbors, their sluggishness;
  • Aggressive human behavior.

When settling it is necessary to take into account that representatives of one species get along better with each other. Exceptions are barbs, polypteruses, sharks, piranhas and other species that live better alone, or in very spacious tanks with other fish. African cichlids do not live with South American for the reason that they need different water parameters.

Dwarf cichlids live well with apistograms, patsils, mollies, scalars, and pelminochromis.


Do not settle small herbivorous fish with predatory, all aquarian inhabitants must be proportionate, have the same taste habits. Feed everyone in time. Make sure that during the holidays someone feeds your pets, otherwise those who are stronger will destroy the weaker ones.

Feed predatory fish in small portions 2 times a day. The abundance of animal feed with protein content is the key to their well-being. If a hungry predator decides to eat another fish, he can wait for it for a long time from an ambush.

Try to avoid such moments, create the most comfortable conditions for all pets.
