Top Ten Best Tropical Pet Fish


The Top Ten

1 Snakeheads

I have a dwarf snakehead which is a probably my favourite fish in my tank. They are reasonably active; and very intelligent, they can be trained to take food out of you're hand such as whitebait, shrimps, crickets and worms. Mine also search's for food when the light comes on. With their appearance in mind, they are very entertaining during feeding time. - JamesNicholls

2 Freshwater Stingray

I watched people on YouTube keep freshwater stingrays as pets

But freshwater stingrays will sting you just like their ocean cousins.but sill they make great pets

3 Bichirs

A prehistoric fish with the features of a eel provides a reasonably active fish with a lot of personality. Unfortunately, some can't be housed with other bichirs or reedfish, and with mine I have to feed him by a pair of tweezers as the other fish tend to outmanoeuvre him. - JamesNicholls

7 Red-tailed black Shark

A very cool looking fish. Always active, though they need to be kept with the right tank-mates whom they cannot bully. - JamesNicholls

8 Bala Shark

A brilliant schooling fish which lives over 10 years if cared for and can grow in excess of a foot when placed in a pond or a very large tank. Their scales sparkle as they swim, e sharks also have a distinctive twitching sensation when swimming. - JamesNicholls
