AQUARIUM fish: compatibility of species
This is perhaps one of the most important aspects of a proper and healthy maintenance of fish at home. It is important to know that only in brackish or freshwater may exist not all fish, but most of them prefer fresh water: goldfish, guppies, chickens, pink Danio, etc. Incidentally, this also should include and a certain temperature, which is optimal for certain fish.
The compatibility of aquarium fish in their temperament
This is another important criterion of a friendly neighborhood. In any case can not be kept in the same aquarium bullies and peaceful fish. Otherwise, first destroy the second. For example, Siamese fighting fish (or chickens) are bullies by nature. If they give birth to fierce fighting among themselves, about their neighborhood with peaceful fish species in General and speeches cannot be! Interestingly, in the same aquarium even it is not recommended to keep two males-males because one of them will perish in the fierce fight.
The compatibility of aquarium fish: predators – a threat to peaceful fish!
Predatory fish – not the neighbors peaceful! The fact that these species prefer to eat live food, so can easily attack those fishes that eat dried insect larvae, plankton, etc. Edinstvennyiy, when predatory fish are not attacking, these are the large size of the latter. But if the predator itself grow in size, he would prefer to enjoy their peaceful neighbors. In this case, or to divide the aquarium with opaque glass, or place the fish in a separate container.
Compatible aquarium fish for their size
It is not recommended to put one in an aquarium of small and large fish species. In this case, the fish will begin to experience significant discomfort. In addition, the difference in their size will always affect the amount of feed eaten by various fish species: small aquarium inhabitants will always get only the crumbs, while a large species of fish will eat large tidbits. This rule should be followed when there is a need for breeding fishes of the same form: must contain only individuals of approximately the same age and size.
Experienced aquarists note that it is best to breed and small schooling fish. The fact that these fish are unpretentious, very beautiful, and also affordable. They do not require much effort and cost in their care. The most striking among them are the following fish: guppies, barbs, Zebra Danio, Pillai, swordtails, mollies. However, even here there is a rule: the fry should be kept separate from the adult generation. In the aquarium, adult specimens should release them when they grow up.
