In 1853, the first tropical public
aquarium was opened in Regents Park, London. This was closely followed by
Americas first tropical aquarium opened in New York by P.T Barnum and known
as Barnum's American Museum. Since then the hobby of tropical fish has grown
vastly in popularity.
When selecting fish
for your tropical aquarium, it is advisable to do as much
research as possible and do not select tropical fish for your
tank based on their appearance alone, this can lead to disaster!
It is vital to check the PH level of your water on a regular
basis to ensure your tropical fish remain healthy.
