Choosing Your fish

You cannot have too much information, so visit other websites, visit your local aquarium shop (just ensure they have staff who are experienced at keeping freshwater tropical fish), and buy a few books.

You may want to think about getting a subscription to a monthly magazine, or buy a book or two.
