Hi James! Welcome to fishlore!

Nice to hear youre interested in tropical fish! Well how big do they get? how big is your imagination? browse through the fish lore site and check up all the fish profiles, some fish get about 1ft long! like your common pleco and Oscars, your clown loach also gets very big about 6''! wow hey? How big is your tank? All these big fish need at least a 55 gallon tank, they wont live very long otherwise! but there loads of beautiful little fish! im working on a 100g planted tank with about 100 neon tetras in! there really are so many options for you my friend!!! loads of beginner fish that are a little tougher than most like try some danios, they like to be in groups and they actually very pretty, you get zebra - striped, leopard - spotted, pearly - white pearl and yellow, like a pearly yellow colour.

If you have any specific questions feel free to ask!!! youre more that welcome to!

Kerry

goldfish are a tropical fish, i think they like cooler water temps though, but if you want something along the lines of some tetras or platies or gouramis, you will need a filter that moves 10 times the volume of water in your tank per hour ( 30 gallon tank =300GPH) and you will need a heater, the best thing for a beginner to get though is an aquarium kit which comes with the filter, heater, thermometer, all you need to do is supply the fish, water and decorations

Yeah, you will need...

1x fish tank - obvious
1x heater
1x Internal filter - so bacteria can grow in the sponge and your tank will cycle
1x thermometer
1x air stone - optional but airates your tank and its really pretty

you will also need some gravel or sand for the bottom,
plants live or plastic,
some stones if you want
or some caves.

and then your fish...

Hope that helped.
