I love fishes. We had an aquarium before. The fishes inside it were goldfishes, angelfishes, mollies, janitor fish, carps and others. What are the fishes inside your aquarium?

I don't currently have a fish tank. I have had them in the past. I like to have goldfish, neons, water frogs, and newts.

Frogs and Newts? Your tank looks like a science project. I don't know. Maybe its just that I haven't used to seeing a tank with frogs and newts inside it. How about your kids?

I haven't had a tank since before they were born. My oldest loves any kind of fish though. If we see a tank in a store or in someones office she doesn't want to leave. She'd watch them all day.

Don't you have any plans in providing them a tank? Even a small one then buy those fish that have longer lives.

Hermits in the Aquarium - Hermit Crabs make awesome pets
I have a 30 gallon Aquarium but it doesn't have fish in it. lol It has hermit crabs. I have 8 hermit crabs that live in my tank. They are great to watch. They hide in moss and or the logs and climb.

So, it does mean that they don't need any water at all?

Hello I also have an aquarium, but it is a small one. I used to have some goldfish in it, but it is hard to keep them alive in my aquarium for a long time, at most two months before they leave us one by one. So sad for it. Take care, friend.

Goldfishes need a lot of caring. If you have no time in caring them then choose the fishes that are easy to take care of. We have same experience. Goldfishes have short lives.

I saw some other kinds of fishes, but they are very expensive except goldfish, which are more commonly seen in the market. Yeah, it needs a lot of caring to keep goldfish. Good day, friend.

How about carps, mollies, barbs? They are also common and cheap. Tetras are also cheap and common and they are easy to handle.

Hello Keir! I had an aquarium before containing koi, parrot fish, and gold fish. I had to give it up because my family moved to a new place. I miss it and I intend to make another one here in our new place, well as soon as we finish our construction.

Wow, we've had some different fish but right now we are down to just these - 2 neon tetras and a whole lot of fancy guppies. We have 3 fancy guppies that I purchased at the pet store and about 17 that were babies from those 3. Of those 17, 5 are in a breeder tank right now because they're too little to be out on their own.

This type of fishes have high tolerance. That's what I observed also. Everytime all the fishes are together, these types of fishes will be left. Some will die because sometimes I cannot manage my aquarium.

If you are going to have one, choose the best aquarium size and the type of fish.

In my aquarium, I have tiger barbs, a goldfish, rainbow fishes and a janitor fish. They seem like an unlikely collection, as tiger barbs have totally killed off my mollies and my angel fishes... Next time, I'm getting all goldfishes.

There are really some fishes that we cannot put together in one tank. What I did before is that I make schedules on what type of fishes I am going to put in the tank. Since I only have one tank.

There is only one kind of fish in my aquarium and it is an oscar fish. This fish had been with us for more than three years already. It is such a great fun to have this fish. This fish recognizes its owner. But this fish is a fighting fish.

Oscars are carnivorous right? I have a friend who owns oscar fish and she is feeding them with ground pork.
