Nano Fish - Our Top Picks

Posted by Pet Zone Tropical Fish on on 4th Oct 2019

When it comes to a planted aquarium, the layout of plants and hardscape can give an aquascape very nice aesthetics.  The depth created from the design gives the tank its appeal.  Not only do the aquatic plants and hardscape such as driftwood and stones complement one another but it can mimic what one sees in Mother Nature.

The flora within an aquascape also plays an important role in creating an overall sense of tranquility.  Nano fish are our top picks when it comes to livestock selection for an aquascape.  Not only do many of these fish swim in a coordinated direction but this adds an additional element to the planted tank, resembling the open nature with flocks of birds flying.

Here are some of our top pics for nano fish (we lied, we have our top 6 picks listed instead of the previous 4).
