any of the latest styles, the kind of fish that are included in saltwater
aquariums can be almost like a fad. Sure, there are many fish that have
stayed popular throughout the years, but even they are likely to go
through ebbs and flows in their popularity.
So, then, which are the most popular kinds of fish in saltwater aquariums?
Here are a few:
Clownfish -- Clownfish have “Finding Nemo” to thank
for their soaring popularity. While these fish certainly were more
popular before the movie came out a few years ago, their sales exploded
soon afterward and remain high.
Golden seahorse -- A golden seahorse is not as popular as Clownfish,
but is still quite common to see in larger aquariums. These are typically
around 12 inches long and must be kept in a tank that holds a minimum
of 65 gallons.
Lionfish -- These fish grow to about 14 inches in length, so they will need
some room to swim around. They should be kept in a tank no smaller
than 75 gallons. Care should be taken with these fish because they
actually eat live foods. That means if there are small inhabitants
in the tank, you run the risk of having them be eaten if they cohabitate
the same waters as the lionfish.
Although these are some of the most popular types of fish, there are
certainly many others that can be included in saltwater aquariums
