Basics on breeding some of the more commonly bred tropical fish

I strongly advise against keeping  and tropical fish together for several reasons.

Neons are among the most popular of freshwater tropical fish due to their tiny size and vibrant colors. They only grow about an inch or so long, so any aquarium 10 gallons or bigger makes for a suitable home.
But can goldfish and tropical fish really thrive together in one tank?

Approximately 90 percent of these fish are raised on farms. Goldfish, for instance, are usually bred in giant tubs in facilities that produce as many as 250 million fish per year. Tropical fish sales are estimated at $200 million to $300 million a year worldwide. What to feed tropical fish fry, livebearers and egglayers

- Fresh Water Tropical Fishes is a Colombian company dedicated to the tropical fish export business. With a large experience in the market, we are now acknowledged by a solid reputation that stands for owning the greatest variety of Colombian exotic fish at the LOWEST price offered at the market.Up to 90 percent of the 11 million tropical fish that enter the U.S. each year are caught illegally with cyanide, according to a 2008 report from the .Sodium cyanide is a chemical compound that many fish collectors in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia (the largest exporters of tropical fish) crush and dissolve in squirt bottles to spray on the fish—and the reef and all the other marine life in the vicinity. Stunned, the target fish can then easily be scooped up.The undersea world is on the move. is propelling fish and other ocean life into what used to be cooler waters, and researchers are scrambling to understand what effect that is having on their new neighborhoods. They are finding that the repercussions of the migration of tropical fish, in particular, are often devastating. Invading tropical species are stripping kelp forests in Japan, Australia, and the eastern Mediterranean and chowing down on sea grass in the northern Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic seaboard.The U.S. has a law called the Lacey Act, which makes it illegal to import any wildlife caught contrary to another country’s laws. That gives U.S. law enforcement the ability to turn away shipments of fish sourced using cyanide. But no U.S. agencies now test imported fish for traces of cyanide, Whipps said. The new petition calls on the National Marine Fisheries Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to use the Lacey Act authority to crack down on cyanide-caught fish by requiring testing and certification of imported tropical fish.Vergés and her colleagues recently documented how tropical fish, which are normally a beneficial companion to coral beds, can devastate a kelp forest. Their . and kelp forests are often known as the sea's nurseries because they have nooks and crannies filled with nutrients that feed and protect fish larvae and juveniles. The kelp and sea grass, however, are being replaced with other warm-water species such as coral that follow the arrival of tropical fish, said Vergés.Once a tropical fish species arrives in a new area, it can quickly mow down vegetation and algae and destroy the lush habitat that protects other species. For instance, "parrotfish are capable of eating a lot of sea grass per individual," said marine scientist of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
