Tropical Fish Are Easy to Care For and a Great Addition to Any Home Aquarium

Tropical fish aquarium fish are some of the most beloved home aquarium residents. Exotic in appearance and offering vibrant colours, tropical fish make an eye-catching focal point to any room in any home or workplace aquarium. With careful planning and preparation, tropical fish can make great pets in any household!

Betta fish (Betta splendens) are one of the most frequently seen tropical fish found in aquariums today. Highly resilient and adaptable to various water conditions, Bettas are ideal for beginners as their resilience makes them easy to maintain in any aquarium environment. Betta fish are fed a variety of foods like regular fish flake, live or frozen brine shrimp and daphnia; due to their natural defense mechanisms they're less vulnerable to diseases or parasites which might otherwise attack other freshwater breeds of fish species.

Zebra danio, Danio rerio is an exceptionally hardy tropical fish species to consider as part of your tropical aquarium, accommodating various water conditions from hard to soft, flowing to still and heated to unheated. Easy to feed crumbled fish flakes and insect larvae make feeding them simple - the minimum tank capacity needed for its care should be 45 cm (30 litres).

Neon tetras (Pacheirodon innesi) are one of the more sought-after tropical fish species found in many aquariums today. While these fish require larger tanks than most tropical varieties and may become territorial about food sources and territories, they thrive best when kept with other peaceful fish such as community tanks with external filters for optimal conditions and can become aggressive towards other fish; best kept with non-aggressive tankmates that cohabitate well together, such as those from another species (cichlids or similar); bottom feeders should receive diet of sinking foods such as pellets or flakes when feeding from other fish species (such as Cichlids or similar).
