Top 5 Centerpiece Fish for your small to medium sized Community Aquarium.
Hey Everyone Cory From aquarium co-op today i want to talk about centerpiece fish for 29 Gallon tanks and Smaller it’s One of our most Requested questions here in the store? People come in and Say I’ve Got a 20 Gallon or i’ve Got a 10 or i’ve Got 25 and i want one fish That gets Kind of Big and is Colorful to live with all my Other tiny fish and That’s like The most difficult question to answer because Typically a Fish That gets Big eat Smaller fish But Here are my recommendations I’ve Got five of them for you with the first one being Angelfish Now i recommend it Is a One of Simply One Angel in That Twenty Nine Twenty five Gallon tank Hopefully It’S a Little Bit taller Now obviously if you have a ten Gallon i don’t recommend This but like these Filipino blues They’ll be striking Everyone That Looks at Your Aquariums gonna Say oh wow i love Angelfish Your angelfish Looks so Good Mine’s so Mean But because you only have One they won’t be fighting and so That’ll Be Great? Number four we Have Certain Gouramis My favorite Being The Honey Gourami it only gets about Two two and a Half inches Pretty docile a Lot of color in a small Package here and I’m not gonna Say Shrimp safe but i have Kept My Shrimp and They don’t Prey on them that that much and could Be Your Showpiece Even as small as a five Gallon tank but ten Gallons and Up a Little Bit Better over here we have? Female powder blue Gouramis also Another Great choice i wouldn’t do the male’s They tend to be pretty aggressive You could do One but i like the females as a One of solo specimen Nice bright blue a Little Bit bigger a fish and it’S gonna you Know Walk Around Like It owns the tank and It’ll be the thing you’ve Been Looking Forward to set off your fish if you didn’t. Have a bunch of blue Already My Number three fish is going to be one Apistogramma i usually you’re gonna pick a male Cuz They’ve Got a lot of color on them i would stick to Kaka Toy tease either orange Flash or super Red Possibly You Go with Egg disease They’re a Little Bit more aggressive you know we’ve Got Here we’ve Got the double reds and then We’ve also Got the japanese fire reds Over here? But They only Get about three inches or so they don’t need you know high ph they can Handle a relatively low ph in Fact But anywhere in the Middle is Pretty Good for them and you Know They’re Adaptable and They’ll Go well with Lots of Those Schooling fish i would Say Tends The bare minimum but really i’d like to see a Twenty or more and Yeah so Let’s go on to number two and I almost Forgot apistogramma borellii What makes them so cool is they don’t even have to be in a Heated tank There’s a Lot of Color To them they don’t get as big they stay Pretty small so you can See here we’ve Got them living With like reticulated Hillstrom Loaches? But Gorgeous fish and Just Not Worth mentioning for sure as their showpiece Number two for me is the bolivian Ram Now It might not look like a showstopper When you’re seeing it in the store But you Get One coloured up looking Pretty Good and there are force to be reckoned with they Get about three inches or so They Get some long trailers to their fin on the dorsal or not the dorsal but the the tail fin extensions Which is Pretty Nice I would do Just one again But They are a Stockier fish They’re definitely gonna stick Out from all of Your tetras and raspberries and Danios and Things Like That and not be so boisterous that They’re gonna Harass everything so i think They’re a Great Pairing for That showpiece fish You’ve Been looking for My Number one recommendation for a community tank with nothing aggressive and you want To show Peace and it to be colorful is a Betta Now let’s Let’s Review some things here like This One Is a Halfmoon? There’s Crown tails if you give them these big big flowy fins AnyThing That swims Really Fast Will peck at them so it could be Danios could be Sur pietrus Stuff Like That and vice versa They’re gonna hunt Things a Little Bit like Shrimp and Stuff like that so i really Really Like to put in Like The Betta so none of The fins are long They’ve Got Nice short Fins i Tend to like the koi ones i don’t know it’s Just the newest color Variety i like them quite a Bit and They Really Stand out in the aquarium All Your friends Will Wonder like How do you do that That can’t be done it can be done They Just They tend to hold Their own and when you give them a bunch of space They don’t Get Crazy territorial on average Now Everybody is different Just Like Every other fish we’ve Seen in this video Could Be different Could Be i hate Everyone could Be I love everyone There’s all The gamut there and All i can Say Is all of our Bettas in the store Here live in our community tanks? There are other Betters as well You could do something like a Pug Next Better That’s we have right Here and That Is a Mouth Brooding Wild cotton Betta that We Like to run i keep Doing my community tanks but all my Bettas in the store Are always in community tanks and The Best Part about that is They’re available everywhere you don’t Have to say Hey Cory i can’t find female powder blues i can’t Find pizza Grandmas i can’t find i can’t find Everyone can Find a Really Nice Looking Better and That’s What’S so good about them is that They look great and They’re easy to find So That’s my top-five showpiece Fish for 29 Gallons and under and I think it’ll add a Little Bit of spice to your aquarium life and Hopefully i’m Answering Some of Those questions that We Get all The time of What do i put in To this tank to really set it off so Thanks for subscribing on the left we Have our latest video make sure you check that Out on the right we Have more videos lined?
