If you’re setting up an aquarium, make sure that all your fish are compatible both in temperament and environment. It’s common sense that you can’t keep saltwater fish and freshwater fish together, but some other kinds of fish, such as cold water (fish like goldfish who cannot have a heater in the tank) and tropical fish (many types of fish at the pet store). If you are using a heater with tropical fish, never put a goldfish in the tank or it will probably die from the heat. Goldfish should never be kept with very small fish, as goldfish have large, gaping mouths and will eat the little fish. Bettas and Angel fish or other bettas should not be kept together, because the bettas will attack the other fish. Research your fish choices before buying them to make sure they are compatible in temperature, personality, size, and water Ph.
