been keeping fish for morethan 10 years now and i specialize in biotope aquariums.
During the summer months, it may become more of a challenge to keep your aquarium temperature stable.
There are many different species of barbs but some of them are better than others for the larger home aquarium.
Cultivating a thriving saltwater tank can be a challenge but it is also incredibly rewarding.
