If you are a tropical fish enthusiast, you would not have any problems buying a new tropical aquarium and maintaining it. But not many people are experienced in how to keep tropical fish in their houses, despite the fact that most of the tropical fish are moderately easy to maintain. For those who really do not know the ways in keeping tropical fish, there are many online tropical fish encyclopedia ranges online, given out for free access.
Most of the encyclopedias have one thing in common; they talk about everything from choosing the right fish for your needs, the cleaning process, and even the annual fish tank changing process.
Basic and Advanced Information
Tropical fish include fish found in tropical environments around the world, including both fresh water and salt water species. This is a fact not universally known by many people. In fact, most of them think that tropical fish are fish from the tropical zones, and they live in the sea only. For answers to such questions, there is the necessity for the existence of the tropical fish encyclopedia indeed.
A good tropical fish encyclopedia always starts off from the variants of the tropical fish, and the difference between this type of fish and other common types of fish. Commonly, most of the encyclopedias have these common types of fishes, such as the Catfish, Cichlids, Characins, Cyprinids, Anabantoids, Killifish, Oddballs, Discus and the Livebearers. These are some common ones that can be found in the main directory of any tropical fish encyclopedia. But if you probe further, you would realize that the encyclopedia would have a list of almost at least 2500 types of tropical fish listed, or more if they prefer to put in all.
Most of the encyclopedias cover a lot of the information, such as buying the right aquarium container, the environment and the water setup, the food and dietary requirements of different types of tropical fish, and depending on the reading level of the tropical fish encyclopedia, it may also teach you on the breeding of the fishes.
A common tropical fish encyclopedia that can be found in a book store can be around $30 to $60, but there are also some which can cost more than $100, although they are rare to be seen. Regardless of the price, generally any tropical fish encyclopedia would have basic and advance tropical fish keeping information.
