About Us

When it comes to keeping fish, it is important to know your loaches from your catfish, and your danio from your tetra. People assume that keeping fish is as easy as putting a goldfish in a bowl, but there is so much more that needs to be considered. 

If you are planning to keep fish, you will want to ensure you are doing so correctly, this means setting up the tank correctly and including all of the necessary equipment. Each breed of fish has a different requirement, and it is important to carry out the correct research before purchasing any breed. 

Hi, I’m Rich Smith, and I am an ichthyologist. Studying and keeping fish has always been a passion of mine, ever since I visited the pet store as a young child, and received a fish tank for my birthday.

I am passionate about sharing the vast knowledge I have about different fish species, to help those interested in keeping fish to do this correctly. This is why I have recently set up this blog. 

Aquarium Part is an ultimate guide to different fish, and I will be giving you the 101 on many types of fish species. My articles will be focusing on important factors to consider, such as the care, diet, and tank size needed. I will also be talking through the tank mates you will want to consider for each fish, and how you can successfully breed them. 

You will be a fin-tastic fish owner in no time!
