Which Fish Is Right For Your Home

Fish are a wonderful addition to any home aquarium. They add color and beauty, provide entertainment, and are an excellent way to keep healthy fish in your tank. However, not all fish are created equal when it comes to the health of your tank. Some types can be aggressive or hardy, while others need special care and attention from their owners. So how do you know which fish is right for your home? It’s not always easy but we have put together this list of 10 popular freshwater aquarium fish that are great choices for beginner aquarists!


Goldfish are not a good choice for beginners. Goldfish can grow very large and require a large tank with plenty of room to swim around. They also need cool water, which is harder to maintain than the tropical fish you will find at your local pet store.

If you want something easy to care for, consider an aquarium filter or heater instead; these make your fish happy and healthy!


Betta fish are beautiful, but they can be difficult to care for. They are not a good choice for beginners, as they need a lot of space and time with their owners. Bettas are territorial and will mark their territory with the color of their fins—this is known as “flagging” or “nipping.” If you own a betta fish and want it to be peaceful around other tankmates, you’ll need to keep them in separate tanks until they get used to each other’s presence.

Freshwater Angelfish

Freshwater Angelfish are also known as Bala Sharks. They are popular aquarium fish, but they’re not for beginners. These little guys aren’t great swimmers and need constant attention from their owners to survive in captivity. Because of this, they can be kept in much smaller tanks than other types of tropical fish like tangs or plecos (which we’ll get into later).

Glowlight Tetra

Glowlight tetra

Glowlight tetras are great beginner fish, as they’re easy to care for and require very little maintenance. They live up to 6 years in captivity, so if you’re looking for a pet that will stick around for some time then this might be the perfect choice for you!

The glowlight tetra has a lifespan of about 1-2 years when kept in good condition. Their lifespan can vary depending on the type of water quality that they’re living in and how much care they receive from their owners/captors.

They generally get along well with other small fish or even other types like guppies or cichlids if given enough space (and possibly even sharing an aquarium). You may find that certain types don’t like each other though – especially when there’s only one tank available at home; some examples include Angelfish vs Swordtail Tetras etc…

Kuhli Loach

Kuhli Loach is a freshwater fish that is native to Asia. It can grow up to 4″ long and is known for being a bottom feeder. This fish is peaceful, so it can be kept in community tanks with other peaceful fish such as Neon Tetras or Rasbora catfish which are also bottom dwellers.

Leopard Danio

Leopard Danios are very active fish. They will jump and swim around your tank, so you may want to make sure that the decorations in your tank aren’t too heavy. Leopard Danios are great for beginners because they don’t require much maintenance, but they do require some attention from their owner. If you choose to keep one, be prepared for regular feedings and water changes! The best part? Leopard Danio can be kept in small tanks or bowls as long as there’s enough room for them to move around comfortably (meaning no more than a 5-gallon capacity).

Molly Fish

Mollies are great fish for beginners. They’re hardy and will thrive in most tanks, but if you want to keep them with other fish, make sure they have plenty of room and are the only species in your tank. The molly is fun to watch because they swim around the tank on their own, often circling it like a helicopter before diving down when startled by something else in the water.

Mollies can get aggressive if not properly cared for; they need lots of room and frequent feeding as well as weekly water changes (about 20%).

Neon Tetra

Neon Tetras are one of the most popular freshwater fish in the aquarium hobby. They’re lively and active, making them great for a beginner or someone who wants to keep their tank clean. Neon Tetras also make excellent community fish that can be kept with other peaceful species (like Otocinclus catfish).

Oscar Cichlid

When it comes to the Oscars, several different species can be found in the aquarium trade. One of the most common is an Acara oscar. The Oscar Cichlid has a wide range of colors and patterns and makes a great fish for beginners because they’re not too aggressive or territorial. They prefer meaty foods like shrimp, worms, and bloodworms but will readily eat flake food as well.

Oscars are omnivorous so they’ll eat almost anything you give them (except plants). However, this doesn’t mean that you should feed them any old thing—you need to research what type of food your Oscar likes best before purchasing it from somewhere like Amazon or Walmart!

Paradise Fish

ParadiseFish is a tropical fish that is native to the Amazon River Basin. They are peaceful and colorful fish, ideal for beginners. They can grow up to 5 inches in length and live up to 5 years!

Paradise Fish are an important part of our ecosystem because they help to clean up water pollution from human waste entering into our oceans through rivers or storm drains; this helps keep them clean so they don’t have diseases like infections or parasites that would spread throughout their bodies causing them pain or death if left untreated by us humans who feed them indirectly (like buying food at supermarkets).

Platy Fish

The platyfish is a great choice for a beginner aquarist. They are easy to care for, and they are hardy. You can keep them in any tank that’s at least six inches deep, but if you want to use larger tanks (or even just have more space) then the best option is certainly going to be an aquarium with a glass lid.

They’re also very colorful, which means that your fish will always look their best when you’re looking at them! Plus there’s something about watching these little guys swim around in their little world that just makes me smile every time I see it happening on my desk monitor screen:

Puffer Fish – Green Spotted Pufferfish (GSP) & Dwarf Pufferfish

Pufferfish is a fascinating, unique, and beautiful addition to any aquarium. Most pufferfish live in shallow waters and can be found in warm waters around the world. These fish need a tank size of at least 24 inches long, but they also prefer water temperatures between 72 degrees Fahrenheit and 79 degrees Fahrenheit. They should be fed once every day with flake or pellet foods (no live food).

Puffers have very unique personalities that make them a great choice for those looking for something unusual in their home aquariums. However, there are some things you should know before choosing one as your new pet:

Ram Cichlid – Bolivian Ram and German Blue Ram, Electric Blue Ram, Longfin Ram Cichlid, Pearlscale Ram.

You can also research breeders and fish stores in your area. If you don’t have a local hobbyist or dealer, try looking online for them. Most stores will list what they have available on their website, so be sure to check there first.

If the store has only one or two options (such as Bolivian Rams), that’s OK! Just ask about the other colors of ram cichlids and make sure they’re available before purchasing yours.

RCS Breeding and Care Guide for Aquarists.

RCS is a great beginner fish, and it’s easy to care for. It’s also a good choice for a community tank, reef tank, or planted aquarium.

RCS is a great choice because it grows up fast. You can expect your RCS to be ready to breed after about 6 months of breeding time (though they may take longer if you have other fish in the same tank). This means that you will no longer need to purchase any more fish when you want more!
