The chart below shows the top five most popular freshwater and saltwater gamefish in America.
The guppy (Poecilia reticulata) is one of the most popular freshwater fish to keep in aquaria. It is a relatively small fish that grows to about two inches in length and does very well in a species specific tank, meaning they do well with other guppies. That is not to say that they don’t do well in a community tank. They will, provided they are housed with equally peaceful fish. If you house them with more aggressive fish such as tiger barbs or serape tetras, the guppy will usually remain stressed out until it perishes. Keep these things in mind if you add them to a community tank. The guppy is a livebearer, and if you house a male with a few females, the chances are very good that you will soon have baby guppies swimming around the tank.
Tetras make up the most popular groups of fish for small freshwater home aquariums. They are the most requested fish because you can get a large variety of colorful active and hardy Tetra fish types, and have them all in a freshwater aquarium full of other tank mates.

Each year I get a publication that ranks the most popular freshwater gamefish in America. I have always wondered about their numbers and where they get them. So, let's see how MFF members compare to the published report.

If you choose "Other", please reply to this post with the specific fish species that you had in mind.
