You are on this site Because you are interested in owning and maintaining an Aquarium. The world of fish is fascinating and complex.
Fish have been fascinating people for years. The Chinese kept normal goldfish as far back as 265 AD Now through selected breeding we have hundreds of that different types goldfish. Although Salt Water cover 70% of the earth and Fresh water only 1%, it would be thought that there would be more Salt Water Fish then Fresh. Not true around 40% of the worlds fish are Fresh Water, Bringing the total to around 8,000 kinds of freshwater fish.
But if keeping fish is so easy, why do 50% of people who get a Tank leave the hobby by the first year? The answer is simple. The Two main thing are #1 The person does not wait long enough for the tank to be "broken in." And second They dont have the right stuff or the right information. So the normal first timers blindly go and buy the wrong fish. You have to be willing to give some of your time to caring for your tank. But no more then a hour, and the rest of the day you can look at your wounderful tank.
I have 3 Aquariums in my room. I have had; Angelfish, Oscars ,Tetras, Bettas, Danios, Guppies, Swordtails, Red Tail Sharks, Crabs, Crawfish, Clown Plecostomus, and Glass Catfish.
