Planning to have an aquarium, here is information on top 50 aquarium fishes you would like to have.

One of the most popular of all tropical fish, the Cardinal Tetra grows to about 1.5 inches and must be kept in shoals. Tank mates must be peaceful and not too large. With its colorless fins and deep red body split by a bold blue stripe, the Cardinal Tetra makes quite a sight in an aquarium. Dark gravel and background help to emphasize the colors of this fish, and it shows its colors best in relatively soft, acidic water.

Living Environment : The Cardinal Tetra does well on flake and freeze-dried foods.
12. Cherry Barb
The beautiful Cherry Barb originates from Sri Lanka and attains the length of 2 inches. It is not as active as other barbs, often hiding among the plants.

Living Environment : Feed flake and freeze-dried foods. The Cherry Barb tends to stay in the lower portion of the tank, whereas most other barbs prefer the middle and upper regions of the tank. Floating plants can be used to reduce the brightness.The tank should be aqua caped with dark gravel, and the lighting should be subdued.
13. Clown Loach
The beautiful Clown Loach grows to at least 5 inches and does best in groups. Numerous hiding places must be available. Hobbyists can find this fish at smaller, less-expensive sizes during certain times of the year. An attractive bottom dweller, the Clown Loach has the unusual habit of swimming with other species that display similar markings, such as Tiger Barbs.

Living Environment : It takes flake and freeze-dried foods but will also devour any snails in the tank.
14. Common Krib
The peaceful Common Krib is an African fish that grows to 3.5 inches. It is well-suited to a community tank as long as hiding places are provided. The Common Krib is sensitive to problems with water quality and does best when the water is changed frequently.

15. Coolie Loach
The Coolie Loach grows to 3 inches and does best when kept in a group. This bottom-dwelling fish does not do very well with active tank mates that also tend to spend their time at the bottom of the tank. It hides during the day, burying itself in gravel or finding shelter among plants, and comes out after the lights are turned off.

Living Environment : It takes all flake and freeze-dried foods but should be fed only after the lights are off so that the other fish don't consume the food before it gets any.
16. Diamond Tetra
A somewhat larger tetra, the Diamond Tetra reaches 2.5 inches and exhibits intense coloration when kept in a darkly aqua caped tank. The Diamond Tetra has violet-hued scales with a fine scattering of green and gold that creates a pleasant sparkling effect.

17. Dwarf Gourami
The Dwarf Gourami grows to 2 inches and is well-suited to a community tank inhabited by other small, calm fish. This peaceful Indian species is available in several different color varieties. Its colors are most intense in a tank with bright lighting but dark aquascaping and lots of plants.

Living Environment : The Dwarf Gourami eats all flake and freeze-dried foods. Vegetable flake foods and occasional feedings of live brine shrimp should be included in its diet.

19. Dwarf Rainbowfish
The hardy Dwarf Rainbowfish grows to 3 inches in length. The Dwarf Rainbowfish comes from northern Australia and Papua New Guinea. The yellow-green color on its flank is broken by seven brown dotted horizontal lines, and there is an unmistakable red splotch on the gills.
