Types of aquarium fish are very diverse. Residents of freshwater aquariums are primarily divided into cold and warm water.
It is difficult to keep cold-water species in aquariums, as they constantly suffer from lack of oxygen. In warm water it dissolves much less than in cold, and in our rooms it usually has a rather high temperature.
Most aquariums contain mostly warm-water exotic individuals living in nature in fresh, sometimes brackish waters of the tropics and subtropics. These representatives are distinguished by small size, bright color and the ability to live at a constant temperature not lower than 20 degrees.
Not all types of fish can exist in the same water layers. For example, catfish live on the bottom, and in medium waters, viviparous Gupik. There are also those who inhabit only the upper layers.
