For this article, I am assuming you know enough about basic fish care to be considering which fish you would like to put into your new tank. This is a crucial decision. Do not trust some store employee to tell you which fish you should choose. They most likely know very little. It's up to you to make a wise decision. I am going to list five fish commonly purchased for a first aquarium that are horrible choices. However, store employees constantly sell these fish to unsuspecting customers who will most likely be back in a few weeks to replace their new pets that have gone on to that big fish tank in the sky. I will also list some much better alternatives that will allow you to get started in what can be a very fascinating and rewarding hobby. In determining the best beginner fish, I first wanted to make sure that they were hardy enough to allow for beginner mistakes that are bound to happen. Secondly, I chose fish that could live happily in the common community aquarium that most beginners like to set up. These fish don't require huge tanks or need special care to survive. Hopefully, this lens will guide you in choosing fish that are both appealing and appropriate for your aquarium.
Awesome? Probably my “best pet fish” on this list. (Oscar owner here, it’s hard NOT to be biased ;]).

So, you’re looking for the perfect underwater pal to bring life into your room, living room, or office space eh? Well, I’ve compiled the following list based on my own experiences and the experiences of others- aquarium enthusiasts and newbies alike. I’ve scoured dozens of help articles, forums, and word-of-mouth verbal data to bring you guys a list of what I think are the best pet fish currently on the market (that you can easily obtain).Some fish are so aggressive and predatory that it's best they live alone, but they can make great pets. Among these are the red-bellied piranha, the arowana and the puffer fish. The amount of food you give your fish is important. That said, do not overfeed the animal. You have probably heard this before and it is true. While overfeeding won’t make your fish explode, it will contaminate the water, making the tank an unpleasant place to live. In addition, an excessive amount of food particles in the tank can clog the filters, which also causes the water to become toxic. It depends on the type, size, and breed of your fish. Try sprinkling a small amount of food in the fish's tank and watch. Your fish should eat its fill in about five minutes. Experiment and take notes until you find appropriate amount for your fish. However, it is better to err on the side of caution -- at least at first -- and feed the fish too little rather than too much. This will also depend on the fish's breed and size. Most fish only require a once-a-day feeding, though some people like to split it into two smaller feedings. Consult your veterinarian or the fish experts at your local aquarium to learn about the daily requirements for your particular breed. But be aware that a fish will eat even when it's not hungry. So there is no point feeding your water-bound pet three times a day, when once a day is sufficient. Some food is breed-specific. Other types are based on whether the fish is of fresh or salt water. Some fish even eat live food (e.g., worms, shrimp, and fruit flies), so make sure to get this information before purchasing the fish and bringing it home, especially if you get queasy at the site of one live creature eating another. Regardless of the type of food, fish, much like other animals, require daily nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and protein. Again, consult your veterinarian or the fish experts at your local aquarium to best fulfill these needs for your pet fish. When storing food, it is best to keep it in the freezer to help preserve the vitamin content. And for the best nutritional value, only buy enough food for the month. That way you will be able to have the healthiest fish possible.It may be seem like a difficult ordeal to feed your fish, but really it is not. As long as you don't indulge your underwater pet by giving it some crackers to munch on, you should be fine. Anyways, fish aren't much into snacking. Good luck at feeding time. Below is a list of five more fish that are ideal beginner fish. This list is to supplement the above list of best pet fish for children. I have kept each of these species multiple times over the last 30 years, in everything from 10 gallon tanks to my current community tank setup, a 55 gallon. You will find all of these fish at your local fish store. They are hardy, easy to keep, and make great pets. So here they are in no particular order (though I am privvy to the kuhli loaches!)
