During spawning time, many fish get aggressive towards their neighbors. This can be especially true of cichlid family fish. These fish are obligated to protect their spawning grounds and take care of their fry. They are also aggressive towards other males of the same species.
When you have a cichlid family fish in your aquarium, it is important to keep them apart from other species. These fish have an aggressive nature and will attack other members of the same species if they feel threatened. They can also attack smaller, herbivorous species. This can be harmful for smaller, baby fish.
If you have a cichlid family, it is best to have an aquarium that has lots of space. This will help protect the fish and also provide a better environment for them. It will also make it easier to feed them. You should keep your tank water at a regular temperature and also make sure to change it often. It is also important to avoid putting meek fish in the tank as this can be harmful for them.
If you have a cichlid that is aggressive, you should consider giving it a companion. You can do this with some types of bettas. Other cichlids, such as angelfish, can get along with them as long as you provide them with the proper environment and feed them appropriately. These fish can be kept in a tank with a flock of guppies. Guppies can be a little aggressive towards angelfish, so you may want to avoid this if possible. They can also be a little annoying.
Angelfish can also get along with other viviparous aquarium fish. These fish have a similar body shape and diet. You can also use a special feeder to feed them. These fish also tend to be a bit less aggressive than other viviparous fish. They can also get along with a wide variety of other fish, including zebrafish. Some types of guppies can also be a good companion for angelfish. You may also want to avoid putting an angelfish in a tank with a zebrafish. This is because the zebrafish may be interested in eating the angelfish's fry. You should also avoid placing the angelfish in a tank with other aggressive fish. They can also cut off the long fins of other species, which is dangerous for the zebrafish.
Some other types of aggressive fish that you should avoid keeping in an aquarium with angelfish are astronotus, plecostomuses, and parrot cichlids. These fish are predators and will attack other fish in the tank. They also eat decorations and plants. They can be aggressive and will need a large aquarium to accommodate them. They should also be kept in separate tanks.
If you want to keep angelfish with a betta, you should remember that bettas tend to be aggressive towards other males of their species. This is not a problem if you have a spacious tank and a large tank. If you do not have a spacious tank, you should consider getting a betta that is not aggressive. You can also choose a more peaceful breed of betta to keep with an angelfish. Some peaceful breeds include swordtails, zebrafish, and neons.
