Fish Tank Supply | Fish Net

by Fish Tank on July 31, 2006

fish-supply-fish-net.jpgAnother aquatic supply you'll need for your fish tank is a fish net. I'd actually advise getting a couple of fish nets for your aquarium. Personally, I have two nets.

If you only buy one fish net, you may find yourself in a couple of situations. Let's say you need to corral a fish that is too big, but the fish net you have is too small. Or, you may face having a hole that's too small to put a large fish net through.

By getting a minimum of two, and possibly three fish nets in your arsenal of fish supplies, you avoid these situations. Nets are relatively inexpensive. You sure don't want to bring your live fish home from the fish store and find you can't get him in his new dwelling, because the net won't fit.

The size of your fish tank and how many tanks you have, will determine the sizes of fish nets you purchase. If the 2" fish you buy is capable of growing to 8" or longer, you better add a big fish net to your supply of fish-keeping equipment too!

saltwater-fish-compatibility-chart-small1.jpgA fish compatibility chart can come in handy when you're thinking about starting a fish tank. You can also use it when making a decision on adding fish to your established tank. Here's a saltwater fish compatibility chart for your convenience.

Click here to see a large view of the Saltwater Fish Compatibilty Chart. Be sure to zoom in on the chart by placing your cursor in the middle and clicking the zoom function for a clear view of each fish name on the chart.

Use this fish chart as a reference by matching the name of the fish on the left of the grid, with the fish name you are thinking of combining it with, at the top of the grid.

This saltwater fish compatibility chart should be used as a general guideline. The temperament of fish in a certain species should also be considered when combining fish in your aquarium.
