Is your fish showing signs that they are sick? Or does something just not seem right in your fish? Fish too can get sick. The most common reason that your fish could be sick is due to parasites. Your fish can have both internal and external parasites, causing them to have issues. They can also be afflicted with fungal, bacterial, or viral infections.
Dealing with a cloudy fish tank? If you have dealt with this, you will know it is one of the most frustrating things that can happen in the fish tank hobby. I get your pain, as I have been in the hobby for over 25 years. While the problem is not as common in the saltwater tank side, it is far more common for fresh water tanks.
Looking for the best place to buy fish online? I get this asked to me a lot and it brings back memories when I started out in the saltwater tank hobby back in the early 90s. Back then you just went to the local fish store to get your fish, live plants, and corals. I remember there was a store called Flying Fish Express and me trying to myself how crazy this is that you can get a fish shipped to you overnight.
Looking for a Best Betta Fish Tank? You came to the right place! Betta fish are amazingly beautiful freshwater fish.

The most dreaded event in our hobby is a fish tank power outage. I write this article with a heavy heart as a good friend of mine just lost his reef tank of over 11 years after the snowstorms here in Texas. He had a wonderful 150 gallon reef tank and within a few days everything was gone!
I don’t want you to go through the same thing and hopefully you are reading this before you had a power outage. It’s a horrible and helpless feeling. I also feel this should have been one of the first articles I wrote when I started up this blog. Either way, I’m here to guide you and get you prepared. I’ll cover it all. I’ve been in your shoes and have survived several here in Texas. It’s an all too common event here with our weather.
The Red Sea Reefer was the first ready to run reefer system that delivered on quality simple install and operation. Today, I’ll do a comprehensive Red Sea Reefer review. Red Sea with its Reefer line has made reefing much simpler to approach even to first timers. The Reefer was featured in my Best Rimless Tank round up article, but I did not go into full detail in the review. In this post, I will dive into how Red Sea set the benchmark for everyone and is what every manufacturer now tries their best to imitate their approach. Very feel competitive come close to Red Sea’s approach and even fewer can compete. The Red Sea line really brought reef tanks to the forefront of our hobby and to the masses.

This post, I will dive in so you can see what makes WaterBox Aquariums stand out so much in an industry I feel at times can be seen as overly complex to beginners.
I’m really frustrated and tired of the news about Chloroquine Phosphate. There is so much bad information about Chloroquine Phosphate it has gotten to the point where it’s affecting my business. I’ve been in the marine fish keeping industry for over 20 years. I’ve used this substance on marine fish in quarantine for ages quietly speaking its praises to my fellow hobby club and group members. It’s been my secret weapon for years in battling the most deadly marine fish diseases over the years.

Hello again fellow readers. Over the past few years, I have gone through a full dive into the freshwater aquarium hobby. As many of my friends and hobbyists know, I started in the hobby straight into saltwater aquariums and then into reef tanks. A couple of years ago, I posted a big piece of content titled words of wisdom I wish I knew before I started. As I got more into the freshwater side of the hobby, I thought to myself I should do the same with freshwater aquariums.
Today’s post is going to be a long. Each one of these points can be a post on its own. My purpose is to place all these words of wisdom into a single post so you can reference it to anyone starting out in the freshwater aquarium hobby.
