Age of Aquariums - Tropical Fish

Overview
Comment

Welcome fish keeper! You've just arrived at one of the oldest, largest, most entertaining and educational tropical fish aquarium sites on the net, where both novice and seasoned hobbyists worldwide have been meeting since 1997 to share experiences and promote responsible fishkeeping:

The Responsible Fishkeeper's Manifesto
    1) For each aquatic species, there exists a set of accessible conditions (minimum aquarium size, companions, water parameters, nourishment, etc.) in which it can be properly maintained in captivity without loss of its general quality of life.

    2) For each aquatic species, there exists a set of accessible procedures to develop commercial breeding programs, or controlled harvesting programs, so as to guarantee sustainable development for the aquarium trade without long-term threat to the wild populations.

    3) Responsible fishkeeping is based on seeking, learning, developing and promoting awareness of these conditions and procedures, such that our amateur or professional practice of the hobby does not occur at the expense of our captive pets' well being, nor in detriment to the ecosystem.
