Thank you for stopping by! I hope my website will help you get started in the aquarium hobby.
I’ve been keeping fish, since I was a kid. After 20 years of ups and downs, today I still enjoy this amazing hobby.
Over the years I’ve kept guppies, mollies, platies, bettas, angelfish, various catfish, cichlids and other fish species.
Here is the full list of freshwater species I cover on this website:
- African Cichlids
- African Dwarf Frogs
- Barb Fish
- Betta Fish
- Guppy Fish
- Japanese Rice Fish
- Molly Fish
- Oscar Fish
- Platy Fish
- Pleco Fish
- Siamese Algae Eater
- Swordtail Fish
- Tetra Fish
I’ve created SmartAquariumGuide to share my knowledge and experience about fish-keeping that I’ve accumulated over the years. I try to cover every aspect of the hobby, both freshwater and salt water.
If you are new to keeping fish, I highly recommend reading my guide on the nitrogen cycle. It is the first lesson you should learn before starting a fish tank.
Once you understand how an closed aquarium ecosystem works, you can start setting up your first aquarium.
Starting a new fish tank shouldn’t be hard. Most people fail, because they have no idea how an aquarium works. Once you get rolling, it will be a lot of fun. You will only realize, after your fifth aquarium, that you are actually addicted to keeping fish.
