Welcome to our page. I have been keeping marine and fresh water aquariums for over 20 years off and on. We try to provide lots of up to date articles on maintaining an aquarium. We also have many awesome links on the right side bar to all things both Fresh Water and Salt Water Aquarium related. Things like Medicines, diagnosis charts, Fish Identification Databases, DIY Projects, Just to name a few. Quick Links to our tank Journals there as well.

Around here we like Salt Water Aquariums just as much as Fresh water aquariums. We don't mind although they must be "OddBall", "Predatory", or "Monster" Fish and when they are all three we are most happy!! So stay a while, poke around a bit and look through our collection of Angler Fish, Bala Sharks, Snoflake Eel, Plecostomos, Spotted Gar, Volitans Lion Fish, Polypterus, Damsels, and many assorted others...

We will be posting comments and pics here all related to keeping our fish. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Any posts I copy from another site will include the URL I got it from and the person who posted it. I don't just post links because often sites disappear and leave you with dead links. If you find one of your posts on these pages and wish to amend it or have it removed completely please just comment on the post and include your contact information and I will be glad to assist you in your wishes.

Enjoy our tanks!!!

  1. is it okay if i do regular water change daily just to bring down the ammonia level in my fish tank without buying any ammonia remover or ammono lock because i don't have any money yet.
    please....any advice????????????

  2. Well before I could answer that question we want to know why you are having daily ammonia problems? Please give more details. Sorry for taking so long to answer your post.
    How long has tank been set up?
    How large?
    How many fish?
    WHat is ammonia readings?

  3. I have a 55 gal freshwater tank I want to put 1 male betta, an elephant nose and some neon tetras what would you recommend for other types of fish to put in that won't pick on the betta? I had killifish in there and they were eating by bettas fins. Also do I need to use aquarium salts?

  4. Hi,

    A very handy and useful water parameters guide.Thanks.

    Just to point out a slight error on the pH FW color chart. The last blue code on the right should be pH 7.4 and the first orange code on top left should be pH 7.6.

  5. I think the fore most thing that salt water tank needs to have is the cleanliness

    it enhances the longevity of the fishes
