Goldfish Care: The Complete Guide to Caring for and Keeping Goldfish as Pet Fish The Goldfish (scientifically known as Carassius Auratus) is a freshwater fish in the Cyprinidae family. It is not common knowledge but the goldfish comes from the same family as the Koi Carp and the Curcian Carp! The goldfish is native to east Asia and was first domesticated in China over one thousand years ago! Goldfish breeds vary greatly in body shape, fin shape and configuration, body size and coloration (various combinations of white, red, orange, yellow, brown and black are common).

Tiger Pleco Care: The Complete Guide to Caring for and Keeping Tiger Plecos as Pet Fish The Tiger Pleco (scientifically known as Hypancistrus) is a species of fish that is native to South America and Northeast Brazil. The Tiger Pleco spends its life in freshwater rivers that have a strong current and it is therefore important to set your aquarium up to have a strong current to simulate this. The Tiger Pleco has an armored body made up of scutes. They also have large sets of dorsal and pectoral fins and a suckermouth that they use to attach themselves to things (such as driftwood). It is important to provide your Tiger Pleco with multiple choices of hiding spots. Hiding spots can be made of drift wood, PVC tubes and shop bought plastic aquarium caves. The Tiger Pleco is a carnivorous species and it is therefore not advisable to place them in a community tank with dramatically smaller fish as they are likely to be turned into prey.
