Choosing only peace loving fish for the aquarium

Not all fish are peace lovers. Take the fighter fish for example.   They look beautiful and come in different colours but they kill fish.  They even destroy each other

We had a bitter experience when we chose to have several fighters in our aquarium as they looked pretty  We then avoided them.

There are other aggressive fish too and here is a list

“Goliath tiger fish, vampire tetra, snakehead fish, peacock bass, giant wolf fish, alligator gar, Arowana, and Piranhas, especially the red belly and black piranha. These are voracious carnivores favoring a meat-based diet”

Apart from avoiding fish that is aggresive on needs to keep the aquarium clean.  It is not necessary that one should empty the aquarium to do that.  Just take some cotton and clean the insides and yes once in a way it could be emptied for proper cleaning.

Some instal air pumps.  We never did that  We had those scavenger fish that eat away dirt.

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family

  1. I have two tanks, one 50 gallon that holds Two Denison Barbs, or Roseline Sharks, they will get about hand length in size. I also have three Mollies, and five Dwarf Blue and Neon Gouramis and one male Betta. They are all community fish and get along.
    In the second tank, which is a 20 gallon, has my tiny fish in it. I have five neon Tetras, one male betta, and five fancy Guppies, and one Mollie fry. I love my tanks. I also have two snails for the small tank which keep it very clean, and four in the big tank. I do vacuum once a month and change 50% of the water, I have never emptied it and cleaned the whole tank. That would take six weeks to put the fish back in, and I am not willing to wait that long.

  2. We do have an small aquarium, but at the moment, there is no fish in it. My husband is going to catch some peacocks from his friend today. I am not familiar with fish, but my husband likes it. The kids like them too. Well, it seems like kids like most of the pets. 😀
