Keeping Tropical Fish

Keeping tropical fish is another satisfying hobby, there is more colour, variety and scope than keeping cold-water fish.  As well as standard community tanks, hobbyists have the option to set-up a Biotope aquarium which is a natural environment tailored to the specific species being kept.

You do not need to be an expert in tropical fish to keep them successfully, but you will need to have an idea of what fish you would like to keep and how you would like your tank to look.  At Aquatic Village we are on hand to give advice on the type of fish to keep which can be tailored to your taste and budget.
