No doubt tropical fish are great pets to have, since they are low in maintenance. Not only are they great pets, they are diverse in colors, shapes and sizes. Watching them swim can be very relaxing and calming. There are several factors you should consider before going out and buying, things like compatibility, temperatures requirements etc. Here are some suggestions of some popular tropical breeds you can get (including its scientific name):
You'll need to make sure that they can live in the same temperature level. In addition, you'll also need to make sure that the tropical fish you're getting will be compatible if you're deciding to mix them all in one tank. Knowing the maximum amount of fish to have in one tank is also important. This depends on the type of species and the size of your aquarium tank.
Feeding once or twice a day is enough for tropical fish. Depending on the fish, you'll need to find out whether they eat floating or sinking food. Be careful not to over feed them. This can actually do more bad than good. They will get sick and any left over food will just remain at the bottom of your aquarium, which will make your aquarium cloudy.
