Fish suited for beginners
It seems there is a demand for a topic naming all fish suitable for beginners so I decided to create this topic and we can eventually compile everything we need.
Just a couple of reminders for the beginners:
1. Please make sure to research or ask in forums regarding the fish you want to keep. Avoid impulse buying without doing any thorough research. You'll really hate the future consequences.
2. "Inch per gallon" rule is illogical. I won't have to go further on this one. Better ask several people instead of only a few so you can get the general consensus of opinions. I stick with space, levels dwelled and bioload rather than compute the length of body needed for each tank.
*-Rethink before you buy!
To begin with...
White Cloud Mountain Minnow
*Red-tailed black shark
*Chinese Algae Eater
False Siamese Algae Eater
True Siamese Algae Eater
*Blood parrot cichlid
*Jellybean Parrot cichlid
*Melanochromis auratus-Same as Yellow Labs.
Tapajos Orange Head
Black Skirt tetra
Black Neon tetra
Buenos Aires tetra
Siamese Fighting Fish
More can be found here and will be updated continuously.
Lepester, what does (*) mean?
*-Rethink before you buy.:brow:
It was the "thinking" part that threw me off. lol
Lupin: you could add endlers live bearers to the list as good first fish. I may have missed them but I always thought of mollies as easy too.
ya i had mollies in a 10 gal tank. all of them died from a swim bladder disease. i don't know why though. any help here? my other fish wern't affected.
