Best fish to own for freshwater tanks?

  • What, in your opinion, are the best fish to own for freshwater tanks? I'm just now getting into potentially buying a tank & fish but i'm not sure which I would like.

  • When it comes to a freshwater tank, I would say start off small at first until you get the hang of maintaining a freshwater fish tank and gradually move up as and when you feel ready. What fish are you looking to keep in the freshwater tank? Goldfish are great for start out, but it really depends on if you are looking to go for Goldfish or something else.

  • I would not go for gold fish because they dirty the tank very soon and it is better to keep them in fish bowls. Betta fish especially a single male would be enough for a small tank. Once you get a hang of taking care of fish, you can go for other varieties.

  • I did have betta and guppies together but always betta goes to hunt my guppies. It seems that betta doesn't get along with other fishes.
