The most beautiful aquarium fish (photo)
The underwater world is fascinating and fascinating. The life of its inhabitants has been attracting people's attention since ancient times. Today hundreds of varieties of its magnificent representatives are displayed. That's why even experienced aquarists will most likely find it difficult to answer the question: "Which aquarium fish are the most beautiful?"
In our small review there are very beautiful specimens. Each reader will be able to decide for himself which of the fish deserves the title of the most beautiful.
The Royal Tetra
The most beautiful aquarium fish (photos and names will be presented below) is the dream of any connoisseur of the underwater world. One such representative is the royal tetra.
The birthplace of this small fish is Colombia. It is endemic (a species that only inhabits this region) of the Atrato and San Juan rivers. Occurs in places where the current is not too intense, in small streams and tributaries flowing into rivers. In natural conditions are not very common, and in the home is a popular inhabitant of many aquariums.
As a rule, all the specimens found on the market are artificially produced. Perhaps someone will consider that this is not the most beautiful aquarium fish, but in fact it is very spectacular: attractive coloring, elegant body shape and activity - qualities for which this fish was called royal. Despite the fact that the aquariums settled relatively recently (about forty years ago), it already deserved great popularity.
Tetra is small in size (up to five centimeters) and lives in the aquarium for about five years. The fish is unpretentious. She is quite comfortable in a common aquarium, but you should remember that she is schooly, so you need to keep more than five copies.
The most beautiful aquarium fish, the photos of which we have placed in this article, belong to different families. For example, panak is an unusual representative of the catfish family. Panaks are fed on vegetable plaque, which is formed on glass and stones, scraping it off with a mouth-suction cup.
When creating an aquarium for these fish, make sure that there are no burrows or narrow slots in which the panac can get stuck.
And this beauty is the inhabitant of many tropical seas. The radiant lionfish lives in coral reefs. She belongs to a large family of scorpion. On the tail she has two horizontal white stripes. The body of the fish is covered with separate thorns, the pricks of which are rather painful. Often grows in an aquarium of up to 24 cm in its diet should include invertebrates and bony fish.
These fish are expensive, but their beauty and interesting habits more than pay for the cost of their purchase. Very bright and extremely intelligent discus quickly get used to their master, and as a result they take food directly from his hands.
And this underwater inhabitant could quite compete for the title "The most beautiful aquarium fish". Many aquarists dream of it. The Moorish idol has an elongated body that is decorated with contrasting strips - black on a yellow-and-white background.
The complexity of the content of this fish in the aquarium is that it is difficult to properly feed, and the lack of useful components leads to the death of this beautiful pet. Feed the idol several times a day. The diet should include meat of sea fish, finely chopped squid, algae, spirulina. This fish coexists with bulls, pomatsentrovymi.
This fish has a tall and powerful body. The magnificent color of the akara can vary from greenish to silvery with turquoise tint. On the gills and head there are wavy turquoise strips, and on the center of the body there is a black spot. A beautiful wide margin extends along the caudal and dorsal fins.
We are sure that many connoisseurs of the underwater world, after reading the title of this section, will say that this is the most beautiful aquarium fish. Valehvosta is often called the queen of goldfish. It has a short but tall, round, ovoid body and huge eyes. The head is quite large. The color can be different: from solid gold to bright red or dark.
Cockerel (beta, betta fish)
In our opinion, this is the most beautiful aquarium fish. Her brocaded and broiled fins are delicious. The diversity of colors is also striking, although more often there is an ink with a red tint. Males are colored much brighter than females, and their fins are longer.
This is an artificial species of aquarium fish, which appeared recently in Southeast Asia. Nevertheless, these fish have become very popular today. Externally, hybrid parrots really resemble popular birds and unusual bright colors, and the shape of the head. Unfortunately, offspring at home from these bright handsome men turns out to be colorless.
Fish of this species live in fresh water. Breeders made great efforts to get non-standard colors. Today, copies of a silvery shade with vertical dark stripes are distributed, which are located throughout the body, including the tail and head.
Undoubtedly, the most beautiful freshwater aquarium fish are bright and beautiful notobranchies. They are able to decorate any aquarium. It is interesting that these unusual fish can be delivered to you by mail in the form of "dry caviar".
The homeland of these fish is hot Africa, where they live in small puddles that appear after rains that fall only once or twice a year. The life of the notobranchous continues until the puddle dries. During this short period of time the fish manage to get out of the egg, grow, lay its own eggs and die.
Caviar, laid by them, is reliably protected, therefore it waits in the sand for rain, which will take place next year. Surprisingly, for some strange whim of nature, the fish living in a normal rain puddle have such an extraordinary and beautiful coloring.
This is also an inhabitant of fresh water bodies. Fans of aquariums appreciated this view due to the variegated unusual coloring. The most popular of them are individuals, painted in black, orange, red colors, as well as their shades. Breeders also brought out new shades: bright yellow, violet, dark green. The advantage of this type is the life expectancy and ease of care.
If this is not the most beautiful aquarium fish, then surely one of them. Labeo-bicolor is a native of Thailand. It is often compared with a catfish. This is due to her amazing ability to swim up abdomen. Usually such a revolution is associated with the collection of food located on the surface of driftwood.
Fish of this species are incredible owners who do not tolerate competition. Most often, aquarists contain one individual. She feels herself a full-fledged mistress of the whole territory. If you want to have two representatives of this species, then you will need a long aquarium.
In a beautiful, overgrown with narrow-leaved plants, the aquarium these spotted fishes look great. Male gourami are much larger than females and more vividly colored. If the gourami provide adequate living conditions, then very soon they will please owners with their active marriage games.
