The most beautiful aquarium fish

Perhaps there is not a single person on earth who will be left indifferent by the huge aquarium filled with beautiful fish. Let not everyone decide to start it at home, but everyone will surely enjoy it. Today we will talk about the most beautiful and unusual inhabitants of the home reservoir - aquarium fish.

  1. Scalar common - rather large fish (with fins can reach up to 20 cm in height), which has long been breaking all records of popularity among owners of home aquariums. The colors of these beauties range from silvery to various shades of red with dark stripes.
  2. Botsiya clown. Another cute whale that lives in the bottom layer of water. The content of this type has its own characteristics. Firstly, they absolutely can not stand loneliness, so you need to keep them in large groups. Secondly, the fighting - the night residents, they are passive during the day, but at night they begin to active. Therefore, you need to feed them in the evening. Thirdly, boats definitely need shelter, so there should be a variety of grottoes and snags in the aquarium.
  3. Gourami Pearl. In the overgrown with various narrow-leaved plants such spotted fish look particularly impressive. Males gourami larger than females and much brighter painted. If we provide the gurus with suitable conditions, then after a while they will delight with their marriage games.
  4. Extraordinarily beautiful and vibrant notobranchus able to decorate any aquarium. These unusual fish can be bought by mail in the form of "dry caviar". Notobranchuses come from hot Africa, where they live in small puddles formed after rain, which falls only once or twice a year. The life cycle of the notobranchus is short - until the puddle is dry, they manage to hatch from the eggs, grow, put off the eggs, and die. The roe they set aside is so well protected that it quietly waits in the sand of the next rain. By a strange whim of nature, the fishes living in a muddy puddle have extraordinarily beautiful coloring.
  5. Panak - an unusual representative of the catfish family. The whole appearance of the Panak resembles the most ancient times, when life on Earth was born only on Earth. They feed on plant bloom, which forms on stones and glass, scraping it with the help of a mouth-sucker. When setting up an aquarium for panacs, it should be remembered that there should not be narrow cracks or holes in which panacs could get stuck.
  6. Hybrid parrots - artificially derived type of aquarium fish, which appeared not so long ago in Southeast Asia, but which has already become incredibly popular. Externally, these fish really look like parrots and head shape, and bright unusual colors. But, unfortunately, the offspring of these bright beauties turns out to be colorless.
  7. Lionhead cichlid - Another aquarium resident, distinguished by an unusual shape of the head. It got its name because of a cone-shaped growth on the head, giving it a resemblance to a lion.
  8. Discussion. Bright handsome discus is very quick-witted and friendly, quickly get used to the owner and practically take food from his hands. Although these fish and not cheap, but its beauty and interesting habits more than compensate for the costs of their acquisition.
  9. Tsikhlazoma severum "Red Pearl", also called false discus, an artificially bred fish, very graceful, one might even say majestic. She has a very peaceful disposition, only in the period of breeding progeny showing nervousness and anxiety.
  10. Known to any kid from fairy tales gold fish able to decorate an aquarium of any size. There are so many species and hybrid forms of goldfish that it is impossible to enumerate: comets, orandes, telescopes, shubunkins and lionheads are only a small part of the variety. Goldfish have a peaceful disposition and a good appetite, so they often become victims of overfeeding.

You need to choose the fish wisely, because their life and your comfort depend on your choice. Before you go to the store or to the market, study all the available information about the fish that you liked.

And in order to make it easier for you to navigate, we have compiled a list of the best aquarium fish for beginners and briefly described them. All of them are distinguished by unpretentiousness, tolerance to conditions in an aquarium, peaceful nature, livableness and modest size. We hope that it will help make your choice easier!

Cardinal

Guppy

A classic for any newcomer to aquarism is guppies. They are very unpretentious, livable, and just get divorced. It is very easy to distinguish males from females, males have a big tail, they are much brighter, and their anal fin is elongated. The females are larger, fuller and the anal fin is shorter, and most importantly - they are gray, only the tail fin can be colored. They are viviparous, which means - the fry immediately swim and are adapted to life. At one time, the female guppy can sweep from 10 to 60 fry. But if you leave the fry in the general aquarium, it will be eaten quickly, you need to catch the fry in a separate container. To breed them is very simple, it is enough to keep together the males and females.

Guppies eat all kinds of feed, can grow well on branded feeds - flakes, granules, etc. It is worth noting that beginners are not recommended to start pedigree forms of guppies, because of the long mixing of blood, they, on the contrary, have become capricious and difficult to maintain.

Males of guppies of different breeds

There is also a species of Endler's guppy. The differences between endlers are much smaller in themselves, the males are not veiled, they are much more agile, the fry are less infected, but the fry themselves are larger and breed more often.

Sword-bearers / Molly / Pocilia /

We will unite them in one group (swordtails / mollies / squares /), since they are very similar in behavior and content, although outwardly they are very different. Just like guppies, they are viviparous. And that means there will be no problems with the fry, he immediately swims, eats, hides.

They are very simply divorced, the principle is the same as that of a guppy - just keep the males and females together. They are very bright and mobile fish, you will not need to look for them to consider, on the contrary, they will always beg for food from you. They tolerate various conditions in the aquarium and forgive mistakes that beginners often make. They eat all kinds of live, artificial, frozen feed. In general, they are similar to guppies in content, but outwardly larger, have a variety of color and body shape. As a precaution - do not buy a lot of male Swordtails in one aquarium, they can fight!

Petilia and mollies during feeding

Danio rerio

Danio rerio is a small (up to 5-6 cm), elegant fish. For its small size, peaceful disposition and unpretentiousness, it has earned great popularity in aquarium.

Since this is a schooling fish, it is better to keep at least 5-6 individuals. The aquarium can be planted with plants, but it is important that the danios have free space for swimming near the surface, as this is a very mobile fish. If you are going to have a veil form, do not plant them with fish that may tear off fins, for example, with a Sumatran barbus. The aquarium should be closed, as danios can jump out of the water.

Omnivorous, they eat any kind of feed - branded, live, frozen. It is better to feed them with flakes, as they pick up food from the surface of the water and they don’t collect them for a long time without sinking. It is very easy to breed danios, for once the female lays from 200 to 500 eggs.

Danio rerio

Cardinals

This is a very small (2.5-3 cm) and very unpretentious fish. However, it is brightly colored, just divorced and completely non-aggressive, even the cardinals do not touch their fry. They tolerate cold water, some even keep them in the summer in a pond in the yard. They love to move in the middle layers, and also like to gather in flocks. You need to keep them in small flocks, from 6 pieces. Although it is possible and large, with its modest size, the cardinals do not require large aquariums. With good content can live up to 3 years.

Corridors

These are small, mobile, beautiful and pack catfish. There are many different types of corridors, but the most popular are speckled catfish and golden catfish. All of them are similar in their behavior - living at the bottom, they are constantly looking for remnants of food, thereby cleaning the aquarium. They are very mobile, while remaining quite small, and carry the widest range of conditions.

Any type of feed is suitable for feeding, but it is important to ensure that the feed falls to the bottom, and catfish do not stay hungry while other fish stuff their bellies. It is best to feed the corridors with special food for catfish, they quickly sink, and falling to the bottom do not fall apart. It is better to keep the corridors in the flock, they like to live surrounded by relatives, and it is very interesting to watch them in the flock.

Speckled catfish

Wedge specks

Very beautiful and very small fish, which is perfect in the neighbors for all of the above fish. Grow up to 5 cm and very peaceful. Beautiful coloring, on which a black spot stands out (for which it got its name), its small size and peaceful disposition made it very popular. It is better to keep the cuneiform pack in a flock, and there should be enough free space in the aquarium for swimming. The flock rasbor keeps together and very much decorates any aquarium. You can feed a variety of feeds, it is only important not to give large ones, as it simply cannot swallow them.

Flock rasbor

Acantoftalmusy

This is one of the most unusual fish that even an inexperienced aquarist can see.

Related to the vines, it resembles a small snake. But it is completely harmless, and quite durable. Acantoftalmus often hides during the day, and in order for him to feel comfortable he needs shelter and soft soil in which he likes to dig. In soft ground, he is able to find and dig a buried moth, not to mention other feed.

If there is sand in the aquarium, it will be buried in it with pleasure. So it helps to keep the aquarium clean, eating everything that falls to the bottom. You can feed him with any sinking feed, but additionally pour feed for catfish, better at night. Can escape from the aquarium, you need to cover it. The readers said that in the sand they could dig in stones, but I had never met with such a thing, mine definitely did not undermine anything.

Acantoftalmus

Lyalius

Fishes belong to the same genus - labyrinth. These fish live in water that is poor in oxygen and adapted to this by learning to breathe oxygen from the surface. You will see how they rise to it, to take another breath of air. Small, peaceful, males are very brightly colored, and their ventral fins have turned into long processes. You can feed any feed, including floating. Only give the moth with care and a little, it is poorly digested.

Already after the publication of the article, my readers corrected. The essence - liliaus can be difficult for beginners (he is just a little flaky and jealous of females). I agree, and add that there is another wonderful fish of the same kind - gourami. There are many types, but for beginners a good choice would be marble gourami. Very hardy, peaceful, of unusual shape and color. It is generally similar to lyalius, but larger and less demanding. So you can stop at this gorgeous fish, and start up a little later.

Cherry Barbus

Peaceful, small fish, the males of which have a very bright color, for which they got their name. This is a schooling fish, so to keep a cherry barb is better from 5 pieces. But you will notice that he keeps loosely, gathering in a flock only in case of fright. The size of the cherry barb is small, the color of the males is bright red and very noticeable, the requirements for the content are low. This is a good fish to mention on our list.

A pair of cherry barbs

Antsistrus

Perhaps this is the largest fish from the list, grows about 15 cm, if the aquarium allows. But he earned his popularity for his unusual appearance, for clearing the aquarium and his stamina. Antsistrus is a catfish, but catfish is unusual, it lives in nature due to the fact that it eats algae and fouling.

Ancistrus

And his mouth turned into a suction cup, with which he scrapes it all. In the aquarium, he is a cleaner walls and decor. The males have unusual growths on the head, making it very memorable. Peaceful, but with other males can arrange fights. For him, it is important vegetable food, you need to feed special pills.

Afterword

Of course, this is an incomplete list, and after thinking it can be increased significantly.But the task was to acquaint beginner aquarists.

Beginners, I recommend first to learn all about the fish that you liked, and choose first of all hardy, easy-care, and peaceful fish that get along well with others in the general aquarium.
And experienced ask for your thoughts about the fish, which they consider simple, in the comments below. I am sure many beginners will thank you for it.

The activity of these catfishes is manifested with the onset of twilight or when the aquarium lighting is turned off during the day.
Astronotus
These fish are hard to call easy to maintain, since they belong to the family of tsikhlovyh fish, moreover they are large, predatory fish. Nevertheless, due to its beauty, its qualities: demeanor, mind - the astronotuses won the leading positions in popularity among cichlids.

Guppy

Gupeshek can be kept in the general aquarium (but not with fast-floating species that can tear off their fins) with a length of 60 cm, in places with dense thickets of plants, including small-leaved, reaching the surface of the water (among them desirable Indian limnophila and glossy grass), floating plants with roots hanging down, as well as riccia, where the fry will find shelter.

Gourami
Another large family is the labyrinth fish. The beauty and popularity of these fish is their diversity and beauty. And also in the fact that they are not demanding aeration of the aquarium and can go without it for a long time. This is due to the fact that the homeland - the habitat of the gourami is the rice fields of Asia, where there is little oxygen in the water, and the water itself is stagnant.
