Starting Out

Starting Out?

Ornamental fish have been admired and kept as pets for centuries.  They make great first pets, and are also ideal for apartment dwellers who might not be able to have a dog or cat.

Fish keeping is not difficult or scary.  A little understanding in the beginning will help you enjoy this fascinating hobby.  We've written a  range of guides for those just starting out - you can download them for free right here.
