Keeping Fish

Have you always wanted to set aside a section of your home where you can retreat and enjoy endless tranquil moments in front of your very own aquarium?

Before you embark on creating your own fish environment, there are some essential processes that you’ll need to know to ensure a healthy and stable environment for your fish.

For example, have you pre-planned the details for your aquarium setting before purchasing one? Do you know what kind of aquarium to purchase? What kind of fish species? What kind of fish requires what kind of water environment? How to create and maintain a stable fish environment?

Despite facing these basic questions, learning all of the ins and outs of creating your own tranquil fish paradise is NOT as complicated as you may think. In fact, keeping fish is one of the simplest pets to care for! After the initial setup, the hardest thing an aquarist deals with is… routine.

And the trade-off?

One of the most effortless and relaxing environments you can cultivate in your own home!

Introducing…. Keeping Fish

Fish keeping is one of the oldest forms of relaxation and home aquariums are becoming more and more popular every day. Investing in a home aquarium can be a great experience for the entire family and is relatively easy to take care of.

But it’s not as intuitive as an inexperienced hobbyist may think. For example, it may not be obvious to everyone that you shouldn’t keep big fish in a small tank, or that small fish probably won’t fair well with larger more aggressive stock. And, unless you follow the advice of the store clerk where you buy Betta fish, you may not know that putting multiple male betta fish in the same fish tank is a bad idea!

This primer will show you…

  • The differences between freshwater and saltwater setups
  • What to look for when purchasing your aquarium
  • How to setup your aquarium
  • Why and how to “cycle” your tank
  • How to maintain stable water conditions
  • How to add, and care for, your fish
  • And much, much more!
