The practical Side of Fish Keeping

This is the home for all our how-to guides, tips, tricks, and knowledge on the practical side of fish keeping

By it’s very nature, fish keeping is a very practical hobby. By which I mean there’s lots of actual, physical things to do, such as water changes, cleaning, feeding, adding fish to the tank, vacuuming your sand or gravel. There are lots of things to actually ‘do.’

For every little task, there are right ways and wrong ways of doing it. And if you do things wrong, at best you make the work harder for yourself, at worst you can endanger the life of the fish and plants in your tank.

In this section of the site, we provide all the knowledge and know-how on practical fish keeping. Step by step guides that show you HOW to do the things we have to do as fish keepers, and also WHY.

You’ll also find in here educational articles, interesting facts, and knowledge on all aspects of fish keeping, answering common questions you may have, and aiming to improve your knowledge on fish keeping in general.
