Default freshwater fish that look like saltwater fish (freshwater)


I'm thinking of setting up an aquarium. I like the looks of
saltwater, but I don't want the hassle. What freshwater fish might I
buy that would look like they might be from saltwater?

Yellow labs, for one! They're solid bright lemon/mustard yellow with jet
black trim on some of the fins.

A properly cared for marine tank is no more work then a properly cared
for freshwater tank.

Perhaps but it's much more expensive to maintain salt water tanks.

It takes a real expert to tell the Freshwater Cobbler from the Saltwater
Cobbler. They are a fantastic Catfish for a freshwater aquarium. (Tandanus
Bostocki)

That's a very misleading general statement. If you want to maintain a
simple freshwater community tank, or even a Rift Lake Ciclid tank, the
ongoing maintenance is pretty much limited to basic filter maintenance,
periodic water changes (which can be simplified even further with a Python),
and periodic water tests of PH and Nitrite (to make sure all is well with
the biological filter).

With a marine tank each water change requires salt mixing and measuring
specific gravity, water testing is far more extensively required and much
more equipment is generally required to be maintained. For someone who has
been keeping a marine tank for years it might seem simple, but it is most
assuredly not as easy as keeping a freshwater one.

Sorry...

You can't get Tandanus Bostocki over there.
Try the Tandanus Tandanus - the Eel Tailed Catfish, instead.
