How to buy fish for a non-aggressive freshwater aquarium

Maintaining a non-aggressive aquarium requires careful planning and purchasing. You cannot simply buy any fish that catch your eye, mix them all together in the same tank and expect them to get on. Some species cannot stand each other and will fight at every opportunity. Even members of the same species can be aggressive towards each other in schools of some sizes.

Skill level:Moderate

Instructions

1 Buy fish that are known to be peaceful, such as some types of barbs and rasboras. The cherry barb and harlequin rasbora are good examples. The cherry barb is a well-liked fish amongst aquarium keepers, as it is hardy, easy to look after and has a peaceful disposition. The harlequin rasbora is also a popular addition to the non-aggressive aquarium. Rainbowfish and tetras are two further species that are generally peaceful.

2 Buy a quantity of each type of fish that experts consider ideal. Having the right size schools will help maintain peace and harmony in the tank. In the case of the cherry barb, you should buy five or more, according to Aquatic Community. Live Aquaria recommends buying about eight to ten harlequin rasboras. Consult aquatics shop sales staff for further recommendations about particular school sizes.

3 Use a fish compatibility chart to check whether your fish choices have what Tropical-Fish-By-Post call “tank mate compatibility.” Look for the “Y” symbols to indicate compatibility between two different types. Tropical-Fish-By-Post warn that some individual fish of a generally peaceful type may vary from the group’s normal behaviour and exhibit aggression.

4 Buy fish according to their favoured swimming levels. Some fish prefer to swim near the top of the aquarium. Others, such as tetras and barbs, prefer a middle position, while some like to swim near the bottom of the tank, like the clown loach. Aggression between fish is unlikely when they stick to their own zones, so buying fish with a mixture of preferred positions is a good way of maintaining peace in the tank.
