Fish from India

India has a number of very large river systems that run from the Himalayas to the sea: the Indus, Ganges, and Brahmaputra. Like much of Asia, there are numerous micro-habitats: from fast flowing rivers, home to Danios and other current-loving species, to still marshes, thick with vegetation - home of slow moving fish such as Gouramis. Examine the list of some of the widely seen Indian aquarium species below.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Low light plants Java moss, Java fern, and several of the Anubias species all do fine in low-light conditions. That is not to say that they do not thrive with stronger lighting, but in an aquarium with a lot of floating plants, or one with timid fish that prefer a dimmer tank, these plants are very useful indeed. All are epiphytes; that is to say they need not be planted, and can be attached to stones, bogwood or just left free floating
