Petco's fish store associates can help you find the right live pet fish for your unique needs
Below is a detailed list of aquarium fish from the most expensive to the cheapest in the market today. It is important to note that the price of aquarium fish varies mostly depending on the scarcity of certain species. This is why it is possible to get expensive and cheap fish belonging to the same species. The most expensive aquarium fish are obviously the most expensive. When you spend thousands of dollars on the best aquarium, you want aquarium fish with a matching price tag. The same applies when you don’t have a lot of money to spend. Fish are very unique and amazing pets. Below are top 10 aquarium fish for every budget.
Fish make unique pets for many different reasons when compared to a small mammal, canine, or kitty. The most obvious difference is their care is limited to their bowl or tank (they don't need daily potty walks). They don't bark, hiss, claw, puke, or get into anything in the house. This doesn't mean fish can't be entertaining --- in fact, fish learn to recognize their owners, as well as interact. Believe it or not, fish can also be trained to do small tricks! What fish owners appreciate most --- between the color, movement, and quantity of fish, as well as how elaborate the aquarium or even a pond is decorated --- is the calming effect they offer the observer. Be sure to check out our comets, fantails, suckers, koi, betta (and more!) the next time you stop by.

This freshwater shrimp is often used as fodder for large aquarium fish. They have recently become more popular as a pet because they are easy to care for and breed.

Providing there are no predatory fish in the tank, these invertebrates will survive and thrive.If you’re into gentle fish love loving nature, then piranhas are not meant for you. Usually they are the wolves of the river, normally hunting in a pack. So, if you’re planning on getting some unique pets as piranhas, get three and above. Fancy guppies are extremely appealing for a community tank because they are friendly, small and come in a range of brilliant colors and striking patters. Unfortunately, most guppies can barely survive the trip home from the pet store. Decades of selective breeding has resulted in stocks that are inbred and weak, and males seem to fair particularly poorly. There are alternatives however – “feeder” guppies can actually be quite pretty, and if you allow them to breed for several generations visually appealing traits often intensify. If you choose to bring home feeder fish however, quarantine them before introducing them to your community tank as they may harbor diseases.Below is a list of five more fish that are ideal beginner fish.
