Do alot of research... I reccomend Wikipedia or do a simple search on google
Currently considering other fish for other tanks I have
Don't have one
I always wanted a pet, I thought a fish would be a good choice. Gold fish are too messy so I went with a betta.
When you see signs of stress in your fish, you can then take steps to identify the source of that stress and then to resolve it before it becomes a major issue.
If you're looking for a unique way to stock your new tank, give freshwater shrimp a try.
If your fish is suffering, you may want to consider euthanasia as an option to humanely end his pain.
