8 Best Fish to Put in an Aquarium

Fish be with you.

Kuhli Loach

This eel-like fish is such a curious thing to watch, you won’t regret including it in your tank! They are a peaceful breed (best kept in threes) and are harmonious tank dwellers, are bottom feeders, and can adapt very well to water changes.



The platy fish are known for crazy breeding, so if that’s your plan, then all you have to do is put in males and females (the recommendation is to put more females than males) together. Otherwise, keep them away from each other.

The platy fish are great for community tanks as they can live together with any non-aggressive fish. They aren’t picky with diet, too, and can survive even in poor water quality.



The swordtail fish might just be your favorite fish group, as they will clean the tank of you (a grateful gesture for feeding them!) and aren’t demanding when it comes to water conditions. Best kept in groups of at least five, you’re sure to have fun seeing them together! The swordtail fish can grow for up to 12cm.


White Cloud

The white cloud fish has an interesting behavior. They thrive well in a community tank, and when not in the company of other small fish, it is said that they lose their color and they tend to hide. The white cloud fish can grow for up to 4cm, are a peaceful breed, and will eat most foods.
