Once you’ve decided, here’s a list of ten of the best freshwater aquarium fish for beginners.
The European perch has been introduced to many new regions through fish stocking for recreational use. The nonnative range has also expanded as the fish has swum to new areas through connecting waterbodies (lakes, river, and streams within the same watershed). In New South Wales, Australia, these fish are a serious pest and are listed as Class 1 noxious species (NSW DPI 2013). These predatory fish have been blamed for the local extirpation of the mudminnow (Galaxiella munda) (Moore 2008, ISSG 2010) and depleted populations of native invertebrates and fish (Moore 2008). This species reportedly consumed 20,000 rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) fry from an Australian reservoir in less than 3 days (NSW DPI 2013). The introduction of these fish in New Zealand and China has severely altered native freshwater communities (Closs et al. 2003). European perch form dense populations, forcing them to compete amongst each other for a reduced food supply. This competition results in stunted fish that are less appealing to the recreational fishery (NSW DPI 2013).
The Amur sleeper is a voracious, generalist predator that eats invertebrates (such as freshwater crayfish, shrimp, mollusks, and insects), amphibian tadpoles, and small fish (Bogutskaya and Naseka 2002). Reshetnikov (2003) found that the Amur sleeper significantly reduced species diversity of fishes and amphibians where it was introduced. In some small water bodies, Amur sleepers considerably decrease the number of species of aquatic macroinvertebrates, amphibian larvae, and fish species (Reshetnikov 2003, Pauly 2014, Kottelat and Freyhof 2007).

Like their anadromous salmon counterparts, their ocean diet makes them a tasty treat when they return to the rivers. Although they are essentially a rainbow trout that has spent a majority of their life in saltwater, they are still much higher quality table fare than their lifelong freshwater kin, which can be attributed to their diet in the salt.
