Tropical - Fish - Pictures .com

This is a tropical fish site for all tropical fish enthusiasts from beginner to expert. It has some nice tropical fish pictures and will hopefully have something of interest for all freshwater and marine fish keepers. These tropical fish pages provide some information about some of my favourite fish, along with tropical fish pictures of them. I have kept fish for many years now, ranging from community to marine. Over this period I have been drawn towards catfish, and the cichlids, which I must confess, through there antics have become my favourites. I now keep African and American cichlids, along with some catfish and plecs.

Heater

If you live where the temperature is always 24oC or 75oF, 2oC or F, then you will not need a heater. Remember the fish are "tropical" fish and need tropical conditions. The temperature of the tank needs to be between 24oC and 28oC (75oF and 82oF) at all times. You can get second hand heaters or cheap unbranded ones, but to save yourself a lot of trouble, spend the cash on a reliable one. Make sure the glass is tough and all the joins are properly sealed. The problem with the cheaper heaters is that if a problem occurs, the glass can crack or the joints are not secure; you can end up with electrocuted fish and possibly electrocute yourself. Most heaters have a thermostat to regulate the water temperature. Adjustments are made easily, which can be handy when trying to fight off disease or induce breeding. Ask your aquarium dealer for advise. Stick a thermometer to the side of the tank; it lets you keep an eye on the temperature of the tank at all times.
