The Most Popular Types Of Tropical Fish For Your Aquarium

If you've been researching fish tanks and tropical fish, you may already know the Guppy fish is likely the most popular tropical fish. While there are many types of tropical fish, the Guppy fish is one of the least expensive and most durable types. Because of their breeding ability, guppy fish are one of a kind.

They breed extremely easy and give birth to free swimming babies, instead of laying eggs. Found in the wild and in most parts of the world, the Guppy fish is the ideal choice for beginning aquarium owners. They are easy to maintain and care for and are non-aggressive.

There is a huge variety available in Guppy fish including the likes of the Bottom and Double swordtail guppy, Fancy guppy, Fantail guppy, Lacetail guppy, Long fin guppy, Snakeskin guppy, the Veiltail guppy and varieties or Tetras.

Even a beginner can combine tropical fish such as guppies into a beautiful aquarium setting. However, it can be best to keep guppies together in a separate tank because other more aggressive fish can abuse their beautiful long tails.

To take care of Guppy fish, owners should feed them once or twice a day. Guppies, like other tropical fish, subsist on flaked fish food created for their dietary needs. It's vital not to over-feed Guppies. Tropical fish who are not eger for their food are being fed too much in the first place.

There are many kinds of Tetris fish, including one called the Paracheirodon Axelrodi. These fish are commonly known as Cardinal Tetras. This fish type grows to about 1 inch in size and comes from the Upper Rio Negro, Columbia, and Brazil.

Similar to the Neon Tetra in color this fish differs in that it has a broader spectrum of colors. Unlike Neon fish, the Cardinals have red colors on the cover of their gill. The fish take nourishment from the water and need to have the same general environmental quality as that required by the Neon fish.
