Hi, I am Joe!

Joe Elliott | Successful AquariumThank you so much for stopping by, I hope you find the information that you are looking for to help you on your fish keeping journey.

I am from a busy little city in the United Kingdom… Glasgow in Scotland.

I was born and raised here.

Scotland is such a lovely place to live, despite the stories you may hear about Glasgow it has been a great home.

I have kept fish for a number of years and have dabbled with the likes of goldfish, angel fish, pink kissers, and even Nemo himself (clown fish). I think they are the most underrated animals on the planet.

Alongside the birds of the world.

Another species that doesn’t get that much love but they are fantastic animals.

I wanted to start this blog to share my love and help the fish keeping community.

When you have raised a wide variety of fish like I have you build a lot of knowledge to share.

This is my hub and I hope it helps you design your dream aquarium.

Caring For Goldfish 101 Exactly What You Need To Know

I remember when I was growing up, I begged my dad for months about getting a new addition to the family. I was under the age of 10 and it was decided we would get a goldfish.

Needless to say, this didn’t turn out well.

The poor little guy lasted about a week or two.

He was in a bowl that was far too small for him (click here to see the best tanks for goldfish). That was one of the biggest mistakes I made but I know I made a lot more.

The pet shop staff really aren’t great at educating their customers on how to care for goldfish.

They never told me about cycling the tank, they never told me to do small and frequent water changes and to be fair they did nothing… here’s your fish and tank, get on with it.

Throughout the years I have learned how to raise goldfish properly. Not to forget tropical fish and marine fish.

Here is your education before you go and get your new fish.

I hope this website helps you in your journey to a thriving aquarium.
