There are more of them that will than won't. We always make sure that we get the type that are not aggressive, even though the others sometimes are a lot neater looking.

Yes, many fish are not suitable to be with others. An oscar will eat other fish - that is why you often see feeder goldfish in their tanks. Angelfish can be very agressive in a community tank. Male Bettas are ok with most other fish but will attack other male bettas and fancy guppies. If you want a friendly tank you need to shop for community fish like tetras, mollies and guppies. Your local pet store should be able to tell you which fish will get along with others.

I think that most people know what a piranha is, but they are not the most antisocial fish that people keep in their tanks. There are many fish that of he same size Will kill piranhas when in the same tank. And the Siamese fighting fish Betta splendens cannot be kept with other Bettas (males only one to a tank. I like to say that any fish that will fit into another fishes mouth .............. will.

Yes, most definitely. I suggest that before buying any fish, do a little research on them before dunking them in your tanks.
