New home study fishkeeping course in the October issue!
We've been working really hard here in the Practical Fishkeeping office to bring you a five-part home learning course on the basics of fishkeeping, which kicks off in the October issue. And what's more, at the end of the course you'll have the opportunity to take a test to see if you qualify for a special Fishkeeping Diploma!
Our fantastic Aquatic School series is brought to you by PFK in association with Fluval. Each month for the next five issues, we'll be taking you through a basic but essential area of the hobby, covering water quality and chemistry, filtration and the nitrogen cycle, fish physiology and habitat, disease management, and aquarium husbandry.
There's no additional cost to take the test, and you don't need to buy any extra study materials - all the information you need will be in the pages of Practical Fishkeeping.
This first month, we concentrate on the essential subject of water — how it behaves, what goes in to it, and how factors outside of our immediate vision can impact on fish welfare.
