*** This is Definitely Not About Your Grandma's Fish Bowl! ***
Have you ever wished you could wave a magic wand and transform
the goldfish bowl you had as a child into an aquatic wonderland?
Or, maybe your last vacation included a visit to Sea Word and you delighted in the squeals of laughter from your kids and promised them their own miniature version right in your own home.
Whatever your reasons for being here it's a sure bet that you are looking for the opportunity to create a vision of "Finding Nemo" habitat right in your own home. A noble idea surely, but if you are caught in a time warp you need to understand that when it comes to creating an aquarium, as the saying goes, "they've come a long way baby!"
First things first. You do realize that you gotta' have a plan, right? You know, kind of like plan your work and work your plan? Before you run off to the pet store and start scooping up fish in a net you need to learn a little bit more about "fish keeping."
"Fish keeping?" Yep, that's right, "fish keeping." Or, in a more eloquent description, "keeper of fish." Did you know that "fish keeping" is actually dated as far back as medieval times? Well it's true. But don't worry, you don't have to build your aquarium as large as a moat.
If any of this is striking a chord within, you need some help before you embark on your "fish keeping" adventure and we highly recommend you acquire a copy of Your Guide to Tropical Freshwater Fish Aquariums. It's definitely just what the doctor ordered for "fish keeping 101."
First things first. Here's a little sample of what you'll find inside of the 100+ fishy pages:
