Care Sheets, Tips and Guides to Caring for all Your Aquarium Friends
To list and describe every species of fish in the world would be an impossible task, and honestly, not much use to the average fish keeper.
Instead, what you will find in this section are care sheets and guides to the most commonly kept species, with lots of details, images, tips and tricks for each aspect of caring for the fish you own.
You’ll find advice on the best fish for beginners, detailed lists of different types of fish such as freshwater, marine, bottom feeders, algae eaters and so on.
The most useful articles will be those dedicated to individual species, where we discuss for each:
- General description, colors, and variations available.
- How big they get, and how long they live.
- How easy or hard they are to care for – Any special care considerations
- Feeding and diet
- Preferred tank size and shape
- Aquarium Set-up (filtration, lighting, substrate, water temp, etc.)
- Tank mate compatibility
