Keeping fish can be more of a commitment and more complicated than first expected. It takes a lot of commitment to maintain the cleanliness of the tank and also a lot of research has to go in to make sure you have the right equipment and right environment for the right fish. Here is a quick guide to maintaining a happy fish:

Every fish needs a different environment for example, some fish need a hot water environment and some a cold. Research into this kind of thing is vital a) before you pay your money and b) before you potentially put a fish into a wrong and threatening environment.

Some might also struggle in the battle for food come feeding time.
