1. Environmental Conditions
First consider your your environment, is it hot, cold or tropical? Choose a fish that suits your environmental conditions.

2. Feed Sources
What food to you have access to feed your fish? Will you grow duckweed? Will you breed black soldier fly larvae?

3. Purpose
Are you wanting fish to eat or just for producing waste to feed your plants?

4. Size
How big will your fish tank be and how many fish will you stock? Is it a small desktop system, that is great for a siamese fighting fish(betta) or a big system, that would be great for delicious Murray cod.

5. Is it legal?
The fish you want, could be classified as an invasive species. So remember to check with the local fishery department.
