Welcome to the place where you can get all the information you need for keeping fresh water fish! On this site you will find information about setting up your aquarium to create the best habitat for your pet fish and information about their behaviour, their environmental needs such as water temperature and aquascape preferences. While your tank is your work of art and you have almost complete freedom over how it should look there are guidelines which if you follow can make life for your fish as natural as possible. For example most tropical fish such as Platy fish and Tetras prefer a heavily planted tank with driftwood, whilst African Cichlids prefer a rock based aquascape because of their natural habitat being made up of rocks and boulders. There are a lot of factors to consider before you find the tank that suits you and then the fish that suit the tank. So on this site I aim to make life easier for the new aquarist!
