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

Cichlids? There are estimated to be over 2000 different Cichlid species in the wild, of all sizes, shapes and colours. Many require very specialist conditions such as those coming from the sandy/rocky waters of Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika. Others, such as the Apistogramma dwarf cichlids from the Amazon basin require softer water and a well-planted tank. In general cichlids do not make good community fish as they can get quite aggressive, especially when spawning - but a specialist cichlid tank is certainly a sight to behold, and can be very rewarding for the more experienced aquarist
