The April issue is HEAVING with fishy content, from familiar faces to a handful of oddities you've likely never seen before – plus it marks the first magazine with new associate editor Nathan Hill and new staff writer Steve Baker at the helm!
The April Fish of the Month are the venerable Paradise fish, a genus that can claim its fishkeeping roots as far back as the Victorian era!
We head out on a reader visit where we meet Jamie Hendle and his 8ft 'tankbuster' set up with Arowana, stingrays and more.
Jeremy Gay tries to get to grips with the enigma that is Jewel cichlids, only to find it's a harder task than he imagined!
Marine fans will love Tristan Lougher's investigation of the different pipefish available, how to keep them, and the problems that can catch a naive keeper out.

This month's gear guide includes not one but TWO book reviews, including one particularly superb field guide to Amazonian fishes.
On the road, we find some marine fish on sale scraping perilously close to the £1000 mark. What fish could warrant such a price? Nice ones!
Finicky feeders are one thing, but hyper-specialist feeders are quite another. Chris Sergeant looks at some of the most demanding diets out there, and how you can provide for those few species that need them.
Pest anemones can be the bane of a marine set up, but they needn't be. Dave Wolfenden looks at the many methods – natural and synthetic – that you can employ to keep these nuisance creatures at bay.
Clinging to existence against staggering odds, the Cyprus killifish is a species under threat. Chris Englezou takes a trip to the Mediterranean to assess the situation.
As well as that, this month we see the return on the in-house step-by-step set up, a shoptour to a readers' poll favourite, algae control methods, community alternatives to rowdy fish, and all your fishkeeping questions answered by our panel of experts. You can even finish it all off with the editor's tailpiece ramble – just what DID happen to the Big Fish Campaign?
