True, but that is no reason to force them into an environment that is not natural to them. Fish are created the way they are by nature, and they need certain things. Providing the best environment for a species is more likely to mean happy and healthy fish. We are dealing with living ctreatures, not decorations for our own benefit.

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]
