Hi! I’m Rob and Aquariphiles is my hobby site about aquariums and fish keeping in general. I have been having and maintaining fish tanks since I was just 9 years old, and I’ve bred some of the most difficult-to-breed fishes at home, like Cichlids. I started out this site rather casually to connect with and help fellow aquarium lovers (whom I like to call aquariphiles) with my experience.

In addition to blog posts, you’ll find detailed guides, fish tank suggestions, and reviews of various types of products needed for fish keeping (obviously including fish tanks themselves).

No matter if you’re a first time aquarium owner or a veteran fish enthusiast, you’ll likely be benefited by the the content here. Especially if you are a first timer, I don’t want you to make the same mistakes as I did when I first started out. So, I’ve got you covered with tips ranging from what aquarium size you should start with, how you should maintain it, and which fishes are a good bet for first timers.

If you have any questions at all, you can also get in touch with me directly by commenting on the respective posts or pages.

I hope to grow Aquariphiles further as an active community-focused site dedicated to helping aquarium fish keepers around the world.
