You’ve watched the little gloop-gloops with wonder at the zoo, and The Little Mermaid really floated your boat. We think it’s time you brought the magic of the underwater world into your home. Keeping pet fish in a home aquarium is a fun, rewarding and eye-opening experience – just ask Mr. Guppy, himself. Even as far back as 960 B.C. China, pet-lovers have been keeping Goldfish as ornamental pets.
Today, we can introduce all different families of fish to our own. There are hundreds of different types, in schools of various shapes, sizes and colours. And like our own fin-loving broods, each fish has its own personality and character. From the Great Lakes of Africa, to the jungles of South America, to the coral reefs of the Pacific – you can bring the life aquatic and all its fish-tique into your living room, with a home aquarium.
If nothing else, it’s a chance to come home, relax and escape into a deep-sea daze. With every glide, bubble and over-caffeinated stare, it’s pretty hard to look away.
But before you go to buy your new aquarium, there are few things you’ll want to consider. Have a gaze at our ‘Getting Started’ video below.
