Everything from fish tank setup to proper acclimation techniques, water quality information, introductory articles, fish profiles and more. Hopefully the information provided in the various articles will get you up to speed with your freshwater aquarium or fish bowl. Hopefully you don't have a bowl, but in case you do, we want you to know a few things to increase your chances for success.

Saltwater Aquarium Fish Beginner's Guide
The saltwater fish guide also has tank setup information along with marine fish profiles and some slightly more advanced topics. Keeping a marine aquarium is not nearly as difficult as it used to be with the topics being just a bit more complex than a freswater aquarium. It still requires some careful planning and research and hopefully these articles will get you started on the right path. In addition to the set up articles, you will find articles on aquarium lighting, feeding, reverse osmosis, UV sterilizers, breeding and a host of others.
