Fish from Thailand

Thailand is a South East Asian country with numerous rivers, marshes and swamps. Most run from the mountainous north to the central lowlands. Big river systems include the Chao Phraya and Mekong. Different aquatic habitats have different fish populations: many of the regularly seen species of aquarium fish from Thailand come from slower moving bodies of water, possibly vegetation choked, or blackwater: anabantids, Gouramis, fighting fish (Betta) and of course the Arowana. Several interesting species of barb, rasbora and danio also hail from Thai waters. Have a look at some of the species listed below:

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Should I get rid of snails? Snails in the aquarium can be very useful. Many fishkeepers tend to overfeed a little, and this extra food sinks to the bottom and decays, polluting the aquarium water. Snails will happily come and eat up the left overs though - if you have an outbreak of snails you are most likely overfeeding your fish! If you really do want to remove snails, fish like the clown loach, and several puffers will eat them - but do make sure they are compatible with the other fish in your tank
