Sizzling Stock - Aquariums
- We recommend using floating décor fish to give kids a general principal of keeping a fish, such as feeding and cleaning the water. Once they show they can be responsible, the water should be stable and ready for a fish. Selling the dummy plastic floating decor fish adds to the sale of the beginner package. The outcome? More sales; fewer dead fish being returned to the store.

- Simple fish that stay small and schooling fish, such as tetras and rasboras, are great for kids.

- Stick with zebra danios and black mollies. These are livebearers, and the birthing process captivates children. I also recommend tetras because they are schooling fish and guppies because they come in many more colorful variations these days.
—Teresa Etter, Fish N Stuff
- Goldfish, mollies, platties, guppies and bettas are all great fish for kids. All of these are hearty fish and come in colorful shades.
