Freshwater Fish

Shop our collection of freshwater fish. 

Freshwater fish may be either cold water or tropical species. Although freshwater aquariums can be set up as community tanks, cold water and tropical fish are generally not mixed due to incompatibilities in temperature requirements. Tropical freshwater aquariums house "warm water" fish such as cichlids, tetras and other species that require a heating apparatus. For a tropical fish tank, maintaining a warm environmental temperature ranging between 75 to 80 °F (24 to 27 °C) enables the fish to thrive.  Similarly, for cold water tanks, maintaining a chilled environment temperature ranging between 60 to 65 °F (16 to 19 °C) offers these species a compatible environment.
