I recently started a 20 gallon, freshwater tropical aquarium. I'm interested in knowing more bio facts about each of the fish species I have. Especially, do they see in color? My aquarium currently has 1 dalmatian molly, 2 dwarf gourami, 8 neon tetras, and two guppies. If anyone has any informative links on each of these species more specific characteristics, like sight, it would be most appreciated. Thanks.

The majority of fish see the same as we do.

Fish do see in color and its possible that they see better colors than we do, just look at how beautiful the males are even the female colors, which are muted to us, are visible to the males .
