A luxury home aquarium is truly a centerpiece that can make a home look more inviting, relaxing and also help raise its property value. 

A tranquil and picturesque luxury home aquarium can restore peace to your home. Studies have found that owning an at home fish tank can help homeowners reduce feelings of discomfort, stress, and anxiety. 

Choosing the right fish for a luxury home aquarium can be a challenge because there are many types of aquarium options and even more species of fish to consider. Some enthusiasts say that finding the right fish for their aquariums can be much more complex than finding the right luxury car or watch. 

At AQUA VIM, we strive to be advocates for our customers and aim to help guide them through the importance of selecting the right assortment of fish for their  luxury glass fish tank. In this article, we will explain how to choose the right fish for your home aquarium.


Do your research on various fish species

Before choosing the right fish for your aquarium, it would be a good idea to do some preliminary research. You should know the basics of each fish’s care and feeding, as well as understand their needs for optimal health, color and beauty.

All fish species need the right amount of food, water, light, and temperature to survive. However, even if they are similar in their features, it does not mean that they can live together.

For example, some fish eat algae, while others prefer herbivorous diets. If you put herbivorous fish together with algae eaters, the algae will disappear, leading to algae outbreaks in the aquarium. For this case, to avoid such a problem, it is better to research first to find out which fish can live together peacefully in your home aquarium.


Consider the size of the fish

One rule of thumb we recommend is to match your fish’s size to your aquarium’s size. This will help ensure balance and harmony to the aesthetics of your fish tank. 

Consider the personalities of fish and their aggression levels

When choosing the right fish for a home aquarium, you must consider their personality and aggression level. Avoid any situation where they might start fighting. Most species of fish are not aggressive, however, some species with docile personalities can become aggressive, especially when they feel their territories are threatened. 

Are they single fish or can they survive in a group?

Some fish species prefer to be kept in a group whereas other fish prefer to be alone. When choosing the right fish for your luxury home aquarium, you must know their personality and how they will get along in a tank together. A harmonious assortment is crucial to increasing their lifespan.
