Finding fish care and fish profile information can be challenging for those aquarium hobbyists just starting out. We've broken the fish profiles down by common name here to hopefully make it easier for you to find your species. When discussing your fish species it is advisable to use the scientific name since it should eliminate confusion that common names can cause. While those in the states would call it the Bala Shark, those from the UK might call it the Silver Shark. Try to stick to scientific names when possible.

By this time of year, we’re all at the end of a long, cold winter and have our sights set on the warmer weather ahead. So, in honor of the vacations and tropical beaches we all wish we were on, I thought I’d share some of the native Hawaiian names of some of our favorite tropical aquarium fish.Research by the Freshwater Fish Specialist Group has also revealed that several Critically Endangered species such as the Red Canarese Barb (), are collected and exported to satisfy hobbyist preferences for rare and novel varieties. Currently, no legal framework exists for the protection of freshwater fish in India; collection of such species for the aquarium trade is entirely unregulated and even encouraged by certain governmental agencies. Little quantitative data exists on the number and composition of species exported, and this paper makes recommendations for the implementation of a coding system where species name, capture location and the names of collector and exporter are provided at all exit points in India. It also stresses the importance of analyzing trade data for accuracy, and the need for an annual report which ensures that harvesting of freshwater fish is a sustainable practice, having full societal and ecological benefits.Many of the fish listed above are available for the home aquarium. Let us know what you have in your tank now that you can give them all new Hawaiian names!
