In an effort to populate their aquarium, amateur beginners do not think that compatibility is an important factor when choosing fish. But many predatory fish are dangerous not only for members of another family, but also for their own species.
To make it easier for you to navigate in a huge variety of aquarium dwellers, let us tell which of them are peace-loving fish.
Characzae is a family living in tropical and equatorial aquatic areas. This is a schooling freshwater peace-loving fish that have a bright color and do not require special care.

But it must be borne in mind that in this family not only the herbivorous species is enough, but also many predatory species (for example, piranhas).
A characteristic feature of these fish is the presence of a fat fin on the upper tail.
There are over a thousand species of fish in this family. Let’s get acquainted with some of them.

They live closer to the bottom. Moreover, the more unsightly the color of the soil, the more noticeable the unusual coloring of these peaceful aquarium fish.

The main color is silver, with bright blue and yellow stripes. The belly of the females is thicker than that of the males.

    These are just some types of peace-loving fish. Another list can be added: goldfish, swordtails, guppies, mollies, gourami, almost all types of catfish.

    Speaking about the popularity of fish, it should be said that a meaning is embedded in this concept: the prevalence among aquarists, accessibility, ease of maintenance — the simplicity of the fish, etc. That is, a popular fish is a fish deserved authority and demand in the aquarium market.

    Popularity does not depend on the size or type of fish. As a rule, this question is asked by novice aquarists who are going to purchase or purchase additional fish.

    In this connection, it should be noted that when buying fish, first of all, it is necessary to take into account the compatibility of aquarium fish, and only then their popularity.
    So, we present to your attention our selection of the most popular aquarium fish (in alphabetical order, with photos and descriptions).

    The activity of these soms is manifested with the onset of dusk or when the aquarium lighting is turned off during the day.
    These fish are hard to call easy to maintain, since they belong to the family of tsikhlovyh fish, moreover they are large, predatory fish. Nevertheless, due to its beauty, its qualities: demeanor, mind – the astronotuses won the leading positions in popularity among cichlids.
    Order, family: cichlids
    Comfortable water temperature: 22-28 ° C

    The aquarium can be decorated with large stones and snags, the decor should not be sharp. Provide shelters for fish.
    Amazingly diverse family of fish. Nimble, gregarious fish, for which it is interesting to watch.

At present, it is very difficult to classify guppies, because as a result of numerous crosses, more and more new breeds are bred each year.
    Gupeshek can be kept in the general aquarium (but not with fast-floating species that can tear off their fins) with a length of 60 cm, in places with dense thickets of plants, including small-leaved, reaching the surface of the water (among them desirable Indian limnophila and glossy grass), floating plants with roots hanging down, as well as riccia, where the fry will find shelter. To the volume of the aquarium guppies are undemanding.

    Another large family is the labyrinth fish. The beauty and popularity of these fish is their diversity and beauty. And also in the fact that they are not demanding aeration of the aquarium and can go without it for a long time.

    This is due to the fact that the homeland – the habitat of the gourami is the rice fields of Asia, where there is little oxygen in the water, and the water itself is stagnant.

    There are aquarian inhabitants who feel great and look great in pairs or even in one copy. And there are those who are better to keep in groups. Packs can be simple, in which all the fish are equal and the leader, depending on the situation, can be any, or hierarchical with a permanent leader and participants who clearly know their place.

    The pack has its own advantages: the fish are better protected from enemies, it is more convenient for them to eat, they are less nervous and, finally, they look very advantageous.

    They are schooling, peace-loving, mobile and shy small (up to 3.5-4 cm) fish. Contain a group of 10 individuals.

    Categorically you can not sit down them to large fish, as defenseless neons will be eaten. There are several varieties of them:

    • Blue or ordinary. The back is dark olive, under it is a bright blue neon band across the whole body, even lower – red from the middle to the tail, the bottom is silver-white. All fins are colorless.

    Type of aquarium fish and compatibility of different species (table)

    Another pets for beginners – goldfish. Aquarium species of these fish are very common.

    If you look at the compatibility table, the line devoted to goldfish will be completely filled with red, with a few yellow areas, just like many cichlids. But if cichlids are aggressive, then goldfish often become victims themselves.

    Goldfish are large, and little things like rasbor and neon, they gradually eat. And the other inhabitants of the aquarium themselves can offend the slow and delicate little crowns with long fins.

    Golden fish is best to settle with their own kind, there are enough interesting varieties of this breed. It should not be forgotten that if you want to get offspring, then you cannot keep different species together. Who do goldfish can get along with?

    Aquarium species of calm catfish – the Tarakatum, fighting-clowns, corridors, peaceful tetras – Congas, terntions and calm danios will be fine. There are also examples of successful cohabitation of gold with neons, scalars, viviparous, but we must remember that any neighborhood of goldfish with other species may result in conflicts and death of the inhabitants of the aquarium.
