Fish & Plants

Fish and plant care can be highly specified based on the type of fish and plants you choose. We recommend you learn about the specific needs of your aquarium inhabitants from your local fish store to provide the best aquarium environment. Below are some helpful questions to guide you during your fish and plant selection process.

When selecting fish, you should consider the following:

  • What type of fish are appropriate for the volume of your chosen aquarium. 

  • What environment your fish require (water type, temperature, hiding places, lighting, water pH, etc.)

  • Which fish can coexist together

  • What fish are appropriate to combine with any plants you will have

When selecting plants, you should consider the following:

  • What plants will fit in your sized aquarium

  • What environment your plants require to grow (water type, temperature, fertilizers, lighting, CO2 needs, water pH, etc.)

  • What plants will thrive together 

  • What plants are appropriate to combine with any aquarium inhabitants you will have
