Don’t let their name fool you. Goldfish come in a stunning variety of colors. They also come in a range of shapes, sizes and fin types. Slim-Bodied goldfish are extremely hardy and make great first pets for those new to aquarium keeping. Fancy goldfish, such as black moors and orandas, are colorful, unique and more suited to keep as a hobby. Goldfish are competitive eaters and very interactive with their owners. Be careful not to keep bulk or feeder-type fish with fancy goldfish, as there is more of a chance to introduce disease.
Tropical fish attract new and experienced aquarium owners for a variety of reasons –– their beauty, their behaviors, their showiness, affordability and more. Not to mention the seemingly endless array of shapes, colors, and sizes they come in as well as their varying personalities, from aggressive and loner fish to community, playful and active fish. There are lots and lots of breeds from which to choose. Some are easy to care for and are perfect for beginners. Others are more challenging but rewarding to own. Create your own interesting mix for your aquarium! But always do your homework on specific breed’s needs and compatibility with other fish.

Betta fish are best known for being small, colorful pets with big personalities. Male bettas in particular have an amazing variety of tail shapes, ranging from half-moon to spikey and crown-like. Since bettas require minimal maintenance, they're a great species for beginners. Just be careful not to unleash two males in the same aquarium these fish can get downright feisty.
