ABSTRACT
Tropical Fish, any small fish that can be kept successfully in a warm-water aquarium. Most such fish are native to tropical regions. However, some fish that can be found in cooler water in the wild state have been developed by selective breeding into domestic varieties that thrive best in warm-water aquariums. In aquariums, tropical fish live an average of two to three years. A few survive for 10 years or more.
