Tropical fishThere are approximately 990 tropical fish species, all ranging in size, colour and shape! Tropical fish have specific environmental needs, and it is essential that their natural environment is mimicked in captivity. They will need a heated tank with water temperatures of around 25 degrees, fluorescent and LED lighting, specific water parameters and aquarium filters to removed harmful toxins from the water.
