Peaceful Freshwater Aquarium Fish

Gold Dust Molly (Poecilia sphenops)

Whether you are a beginner fishkeeping hobbyist or a veteran aquarist, you take pride in the underwater environment you have created. Perhaps you are a collector of one particular species or family of fish and only keep them. Or maybe you are totally opposite and have fun watching the interaction among different species of fish in your aquarium. For the second group, let us explore ways to add fish to your freshwater aquarium so each of them feels safe in their community environment. Tank mate compatibility is crucial to a successful and healthy home aquarium. Incompatible species will increase stress in the tank which could result in disease and considerable loss.

Freshwater Fish Supplier

First and foremost, find a supplier you trust. You want to be sure that you receive top quality healthy stock. These suppliers, such as LiveAquaria® have done the groundwork for you and only supply their customers quality aquatics from reputable fisheries, whether caught live or bred in captivity.

Peaceful Freshwater Fish

Creating a harmonious freshwater tank increases when you look for peaceful fish who get along well with others. LiveAquaria® alone stocks over 350 species of freshwater fish with peaceful dispositions and include some types of Guppies, Platys, Swordtails, Mollies, Goldfish, Tetra, Betta, and GloFish®, to name a few.

This is not to say that all peaceful fish get along with every other peaceful fish. Refer to this chart to check compatibilities among different species, recognizing that because fish are living animals, no guarantees can be made about the compatibility or incompatibility of any particular species of fish. Also, particular species within a group of fish vary in temperament.

LiveAquaria® wants to increase your chance of success when adding new members to your community tank and have created an article that will help you when introducing new fish into your aquarium.
