Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

To help us suggest suitable fish, can you tell us your water parameters of the tap water? GH (general hardness), KH (carbonate hardness or Alkalinity) and pH. You can get these numbers from the municipal water supply folks, probably on their website.

It is much easier selecting fish that will be at their best in your water parameters, rather than trying to adjust the water which while it can be done is not always easy or inexpensive.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
