When we create a fish tank in our home, we are essentially creating an enclosed ecosystem in a glass box. We are trying to replicate some of what nature has been working on for the last 13 billion years. Certain species may be carnivores and others may be herbivores which means it is important that we consider who we house together. For this reason, we suggest you check out the compatibility chart below for your Tropical Aquarium. This is not an exact rule but more a guideline to help you find species that should coexist better together in your aquarium. As with most living things though we can never guarantee exactly how they will behave.
Also remember this important general rule for fish – “if it fits in my mouth, I will try and eat it"
