Here at Practical Fishkeeping, we never fail to be amazed by the sheer variety of the fish available in the hobby. Whether you’re looking for colour or character, a feature fish or something that’s more of an oddball, whether you want to go big or small, you’ll find plenty out there to whet (or should I say, wet?) your appetite. You only have to take a look at the October issue of PFK to see some of the diversity that’s out there.
We have a special feature on the evolutionary wonders that live their whole lives in darkness, with advice on how to create the ideal set-up for keeping one of these fascinating oddballs — the Blind cave tetra — at home.
If it’s more colour you crave, we offer 19 gorgeous fish to consider — and what’s more, they’re suitable for beginners as well as experienced fishkeepers.
If you’re after something sensational as well as colourful, just take a look at the finnage on the Drapefin barb. Or why not fall in love with marine butterflies?
We have big fish (check out the size of the Koi in our reader feature), small catfish with character, and two perfect choices for a biotope project.
We even have venomous salties, a few of which carry a health warning! Discover all these and much more between the covers of this month’s PFK.
See? We did say the hobby was full of variety! Read, drool and enjoy the October 2016 issue of Practical Fishkeeping magazine.
