Not all fish come easily, right? Pet stores keep most selling fish. I myself got few of my selected fish after lots of wait. I had to tell the guy at pet store that I want Mono Sebae and Denison Barbs and he managed to get those for me. I am still waiting for clown loach and corydora to arrive at local per store as these are not available easily where I live. If I loose these fish which I have gotten after lots of wait then I am sure I will be pretty much pissed about it. That’s why do not put any fish right away in . First search for that fish profile you wanna add and read about its personality and habits, temperature requirements etc. I always read about fish and after I find it peaceful and compatible with my other fish species, I then add it in my aquarium. So that’s that. That you would wanna do if you are into peaceful community tanks, believe me. So here are three compatibility charts for freshwater, brackish water and saltwater fish.
