About Us

When you choose to buy your aquarium supplies through our links, we earn affiliate commission to continue the work we do. Aquariums for Beginners is a father and sons team, who cares about responsible fish keeping and want to give you the tools to keep a beautiful, healthy tank.

Dad has kept both saltwater marine and freshwater tropical aquariums for over 40 years and knows all the tricks in the book. He is the author of Marine Fish and Corals for the Complete Beginner. His new book,Tropical Fish for the Complete Beginner, will be out soon.

Sons are fish and reptile enthusiasts and have been since they were young. They are both avid scuba divers, marine biologists, and researchers. One of the sons is currently doing a PhD in Marine Biology, which focuses on marine litter, and is also the founder of a registered UK marine conservation charity.
