Top-Level Fish: Top Dwelling Fish Add Movement And Color

Choice: Choosing fish that prefer swimming at different levels will result in a far more attractive aquarium. Many fish that swim at the top level are surface feeders in nature. They have an upturned mouth designed for top feeding. Top dwelling fish add movement and color at the bottom level of the aquarium. Middle-Level Fish: The middle level of an aquarium should be populated with lots of active fish. Schooling fish, including most of the Tetra species, are excellent for the middle level in a community tank. Tiger Barbs are known for their nipping fins. The bottom-dwelling fish give interest to the lower levels of the tank and often help turn over the substrates. All too often bottom-Dwellers are under-fed. They can't subsist only on leftovers from the other fish. They must be fed with foods that will reach them. Always research the fish you want to buy for your aquarium. Water parameters such as pH, temperature, and water hardness are quite important when combining fish in a family aquarium. Popular bottom-crowing fish include: Adolfo's Cory, Bandit Cory, and Catfish. . . .
