3 Fresh Water Fish That Are Great For Your Aquarium - A to B
Here are three fresh water aquarium fish (Angel Fish, Badis and Black Widow) you can add to your aquarium. Their special characteristics and aquarium requirements are covered: colors, temperament, temperature, breeding and feeding.
Angel Fish - Pterophyllum scalare (Family: Cichlidae)
One of the most beautiful aquarium fish it swims slowly and elegantly and is ideal for a community tank. But note that they can grow to 15 cm long as adults so bear that in mind when calculating the number of fish for your aquarium. They can accommodate a wide range of temperature. Food wise give them a variable diet.
The Angel Fish has a thin oval silvery body with long fins curving backwards. Vertical black stripes go from the eye through the body to the caudal fin. You will know when the fish is frightened as the dark stripes practically disappear. These stripes can hardly be seen in the Black Angel fish as the body is dark colored. The Lace Angel has fins with a black lace effect on them and a darker body then the norm. The Veil Tail Angel is a marble color and has much longer fins.
Unfortunately differentiating between the two sexes is extremely difficult. But when you do get a pair and they mate they act as good parents and will stay as a pair. Wide leaved thickly planted plants are needed for the breeding tank with low light conditions. After a couple of days the fry will hatch from the sticky eggs. You should be aware that eggs and fry may be eaten by these fish if they are frightened - so do not frighten them! Feed the very hungry fry with infusoria initially before moving on to micro worms and brine shrimps.
Badis - Badis Badis (Family: Badidae)
There is really no such thing as a definitive color for these fish due to the large number of variations. They range from nearly mauve to a reddish color and sometimes there are even red spots on the body. And they change color depending on their environment or if they are breeding! Noticeable features are a dark stripe through the eye, a long dorsal fin and lines around each scale. The dorsal fin may have blue green vertical stripes in it.
Normally only live food will be taken by them and a temperature range of 20 to 26 degrees Centigrade is suitable with hiding places provided by a thickly planted aquarium. The Badis gets on with other fish so is alright for a community tank. However they can argue amongst themselves but injury is unlikely.
Before pairing them up for breeding, bear in mind (no pun intended) that if the female is not bigger than the male then she can be seriously injured by the male. As the Badis is a cave dweller then use a flower pot on its side in a thickly planted breeding tank at 29 degrees Centigrade. After the eggs have been laid in the pot take the female out of the tank and wait till the eggs have hatched before taking the male out. Feed the fry on infusoria.
