For freshwater community tanks, there are large numbers of species that make successful community fishes.
Most of the livebearers, tetras, rasboras, danios, and rainbowfishesare peaceful. Angelfishes, gouramis, and Corydoras catfishes are also popular, though angelfish are predatory and will eat very small fish such as neon tetras and livebearer fry.
. Considering the nature of aquatic animals, it is better to pair similar sized fish to maintain stable and peaceful aquarium communities

Planted aquariums are a great way to add life and color to your home. They can give a sense of tranquility in an otherwise busy space, and they also provide a utopia for fish giving them the most ideal environment.
Many species of fish are naturally aggressive which can lead to problems with attacks on other fish in the tank. That said, this isn’t a reason to avoid these species, though, as many of them are fun, interesting, and intelligent fish that, given the right situation, can add a lot to an aquarium. It’s important to remember certain things about aggressive fish, so that you can avoid any attacks or deaths.
- Make sure there are plenty of hiding places in your tank. More aggressive fish will like that they have a defined space to protect. Less aggressive fish will appreciate the opportunity to stay out of sight of the more dominant tank-mates.
- Before you add new fish, try to rearrange the landscape of your tank. This will help to nullify any territorial claims and leave all of the fish on equal footing.
We offer a large variety of both South American and African Cichlids.
