About

Practical Fishkeeping is the UK's best-selling fishkeeping magazine. We cover all areas of the fishkeeping hobby including tropical fish, marine fish, coldwater fish, reefkeeping and aquascaping.

Practical Fishkeeping is published every four weeks by Bauer Media, so there are 13 issues every year, rather than the usual 12 you get with some other magazines. Every issue includes over 116 pages with a good balance of material on each area of fishkeeping.

This website includes a selection of content from previous issues of the magazine to give you a taste of what each issue of PFK is like, as well as including thousands of bespoke news stories, blogs and other items unique to the website. 

If you like the website, why not try a copy of the magazine? You can buy Practical Fishkeeping around the world from most major newsagents and many aquarium shops. Or you can subscribe to the magazine and get either a discount or a great free gift. Check out www.greatmagazines.co.uk for more details of our current subscription offers.
