Saxby et al 2010 also showed that increased densities in fish commonly kept in the home aquarium ( neon tetras, tiger barbs, angelfish and mountain minnows) allowed for greater natural behaviour with increased welfare in all but the angelfish shown to be conclusive. This could possibly open the door for guidelines based on science for good welfare practices for fish keeping.
