Cat and dogs are typical house pets. But if you want something other and different, fish is great for you. Yes, you cannot touch them, but they are beautiful to watch. If you want a beautiful tropical fish in a nice tank, you will have to do something. You must start with a tank with 20-50 gallons of freshwater. Set it with filter, plants, gravel and rocks, so you can start choosing your fish. Because this is the first time that you will use a tank, you must have river fish! One week will be enough for gravel and rocks to set in your tank. When all is done, and you have chosen your fishes put them into the tank and enjoy. You will have to choose a right number of fishes.
The explanation, why you must have river fish is simple. They are very resistant. Lake and marine fishes need perfect and stable conditions. This means that forgetting you to add water, replace filter or heat wave, wouldn’t kill your fish, but river fish can survive. This will be a great way to increase your experience. And remember, if you want to have plenty of fish, you will have to use a big tank!
When you increase your experience, it is rime to choose fish again. You will have to write it down all names of fish you want, and to ‘’study’’ them online. You will have to find their size and everything else! For example, black ghost knife-fish is a beautiful fish, size is 7cm for babies, but adults are 45cm. Imagine how big your tank must be! One tip, you always look for the size of adult fish! After you bought your fish put it into your tank, and you have a new pet.
