When thinking about pet ownership, if the choice is to get a fish, the first qusetion on many people's minds is probably:
What fish should I get?
Aquatic Central answers:
"I usually recommend for my customers to consider space, time, and budget when deciding what kind of fish or system to purchase. Aside from having aquariums with just fish, planted and reef aquariums are becoming more and more popular due to their ease and lesser requirement of time.
When actually deciding which fish or aquatic animal to purchase, there are also a plethera of considerations; what size will it get, what is it compatible with, what type of water chemistry and environment does it require, what is the ease of care and does it have special needs (which many actually do)."
So keep all that in mind the next time you go fish shopping!
