Choosing fish for a freshwater aquarium

After the aquarium is bought and launched, the question arises: Who should be settled in the aquarium? what aquarium fish to choose? This question for some new aquarists may not be significant. Well, of course, I’ll go to the store, get those fish that I like – that’s all.

However, in the future the correct choice of the inhabitants of the aquarium will help you save a lot of money and nerves.

A variety of aquarium fish is huge. It is very important that their differences lie not only in appearance, but also in their biology. Different requirements for food, water, different character.

In addition, do not forget that the fish can eat each other, if one of them can fit in the mouth of the other. This is the reason why, when populating an aquarium, it is better for a novice aquarist to limit himself to representatives of one group.
However, there are fish that can be hooked up as a supplement to almost any home freshwater aquarium – these are of course “catfish”, or more precisely, representatives of the large group of Som like. We recommend to beginning aquarists from them antsistrusov and corridors.

They will not only be able to add variety to the aquarium, but will also be able to help with its cleaning: the corridors spend most of their time picking up the ground (therefore they are not compatible with all plants), the antistroses are able to clean aquarium walls, stones and snags with their suck-mouth.

Before you start an aquarium and buy interior items and plants for it, it is better to decide right away: will it be a pond with one or several large fish or many small fish? Naturally, in the aquarium, the volume of which is several hundred liters, you can create the “many large” option. However, many aquarists still prefer to start with small containers (up to 100 liters).

By the way, the number of fish that will be suitable for your aquarium depends on the size of the fish (in their adult condition), as well as on the nature of the fish, the efficiency of the filtration system, the frequency of water changes and other factors. Buying fish in a good store, you will be able to help determine their number.

It is also necessary to solve such a question – in what style will the future reservoir be decorated? Actually, living aquarium plants are of fundamental importance: not all fish are compatible with them.

Malawian cichlids, currently popular, for example, can dig up and eat any greens, except for the most hard-leaved forms. But small Kharatsinovye fish, although able to live without plants, look much more spectacular among the dense green.
