Best freshwater aquarium fish

Freshwater fishes in the Aquarium are generally preferred by Carp, Gold Fish, Cichlids, Catfish Molly, Guppy, etc. because they are of much color and size. The average size of the Aquarium, which is around 100-200 liters, people prefer more in homes. These people usually want to keep such fish which are beautiful and easy to maintain.

It is necessary to pay attention to some things

For those fish who are easy to remember and who is suited for the weather there. In the absence of favorable weather, fish have to care for more and they also have the possibility of getting sick. We will have to know their diet only if they will grow right.

Aquarium is right to live in proportion to their size, not that Goldfish and Carp are known as Pond Fish, they have more Diet, so they also do more waste and their unwanted diet is also high. Oscar, Freshwater Shark, etc. grow faster so this is not right for small Aquarium. Molly, Guppy, etc. live in oxygen and any season.​

Zebra Danios

Zebra Danio is very active and playful fish. Due to their small size, Zebra Danios can survive in tanks as small as 5 gallons, but since they are a community fish, and they can seem hyperactive at times, they are better suited to larger, busier aquariums. We suggest keeping Danios in at least a 10-gallon tank, or even bigger if possible. Zebrafish is loved to swim, so keeping them in a larger tank will help them thrive. Danios are schooling fish, so they need to be kept in groups. As with most other schooling fish, if the numbers are too low, they can become stressed, and start acting out of the ordinary, and can portray symptoms such as aggression towards other tank mates, and loss of appetite.
