Watching fish swimming in an aquarium is relaxing and stress relieving, so much so that it can lower your blood pressure. But inside the tank, if there isn't harmony between the finned residents, there can be an abundance of stress.  Put the wrong fish together and  bullying -- or worse -- could be the result.  But careful selection and understanding of the needs of fish can result in compatibility.
