Looking to dive into the aquarium hobby?
But, you don’t have an idea how and where to start.
Well, you are in the right place. I know from personal experience, that starting an aquarium can be a frustrating job, especially if you are a beginner. You just want everything to be set up fast. However, very often beginners buy a tank, and just fill it with fish they think are attractive, without considering their mutual compatibility.
Don’t do the common mistake average fishkeeper does. Educate yourself before your purchase your first fish. Do you want to know what are the best freshwater aquarium fish for beginners? Let us find out.
But before we do that here is a list of things to considered before you buy your first fish. If your plan is to have a community tank that houses different types of fish, make sure that your first aquatic pals are beginner friendly. Don’t populate the tank with aggressive or semi aggressive fish.
In the beginning, it’s recommended to buy species that are easy to care for. You are still in a learning mode. Make yourself a favor and don’t rush it. The time will come when you’ll be ready for more complex species.
Many hobbyists lose their passion very quickly because they face a lot of disappointments in the beginning. Don’t be one of those guys.
The size of your tank is one of the most important things you need to consider before buying your first fish. There is no sense to buy a fish that have big growing potential, and your tank is just not big enough.
Luckily for you, the list of fishes I made can grow maximum to 3 inches, which make them perfect for standard beginner fish tank.
Now, let us see the list
