The data reveals that close to one third of freshwater fish exported from India are either Vulnerable or Endangered on The IUCN Red List. While some individual exporters do provide data on the details of live cargo, others simply list aquarium fish exports under general labels such as ‘live ornamental fish’. This is the first time such an assessment of the freshwater aquarium trade has been carried out in Asia; analyzing export data to reveal trade routes, species composition and volume. Focusing on the Western Ghats and Eastern Himalaya – two internationally recognized biodiversity hotspots, it is hoped that this study will help to create awareness and lead to the development of a blue print for a self-sustained and responsible aquarium industry.The global trade in freshwater fish is a large and diverse industry, estimated to be worth around US $15–30 billion a year. Supplied by captive-bred and wild-caught specimens, the aquarium trade is dependent on the replenishment capabilities of wild freshwater fish populations and sustainable methods of capture. Although a new paper published by the Conservation Research Group (CRG) and members of the IUCN SSC Freshwater Fish Specialist Group reveals that up to 30 species of barbs, catfish, loaches and other freshwater fish endemic to two biodiversity hotspots in India are continually traded around the world, despite their threatened conservation status on The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™.Let’s just face it: small things are cute and tiny things are even cuter.

It is important to house tiny fish with other tiny fish. The majority of the species on this list are shy, timid, and very peaceful. They can easily be out-competed for food and stressed out if placed in aquarium with larger, more boisterous tankmates. Nearly every fish on this list could live happily together in a 10 to 20 gallon aquarium except one, the pea puffer. Pea puffers can be nasty little buggers and would be best suited in a tank all on their own.
