Fishkeeping Resources

We have read loads of books and fishkeeping resources in order to give you the most accurate information on each species of fish we write a profile on. As well as discussing our own experience and detailing our take on what a species needs, we have read the following and recommend them to anyone who has, or is starting, an aquarium.

There is a wealth of fishkeeping resources and information regarding keeping aquarium fish, so take advantage of it! If you have any questions on our information, or if there is something we might not have covered, feel free to get in touch and let us know your thoughts.
