As tanker saqid, your choice of fish should be in line with your water, hard or soft, acidic or basic. It is safer and easier to acquire fish suited to the water you have available out of your tap than it is to attempt to adjust the water parameters to suit sensitive fish. When we know the water chemistry, ideas on possible fish will be easy. Not all fish will do well in the same water; some are adaptable to a certain degree, others are not.
