About AQUAnswers & Team

Aquanswers is a blog about freshwater and saltwater pets, where we share inspiration, tips, detailed research, & ideas for your aquarium. We have made MANY mistakes throughout our fishkeeping journey and thus learned A LOT of valuable lessons. Join in on our community of hobbyist to grow and Share Your Experiences!

Our Goal with AQUAnswers

We established AQUAnswers.com in 2018 because we wanted to share our fish keeping experience and, most importantly, create a forum in which we not only help the aquarist community but we build a community that strives to HELP each other be better aquatic pet care takers.

What we strive to achieve with this website is to provide an encyclopedia with well-researched and correct advice for both beginner and advanced aquarists. And this encyclopedia will serve as a core building block for our community to rally around!

AQUAnswers covers all kinds of topics with the main focus on freshwater aquariums, saltwater fish, and reef tanks.

Occasionally, we will also write reviews about aquarium equipment in order to clear common misconceptions or help with guidance for whoever may need it.

What quality standards does our content meet?

What helped us build our skills and confidence throughout the years was our ability to do proper unbiased research.

We are fairly obsessive when it comes to doing things the right way, so we made sure to learn as much as possible about keeping healthy pet fish, aquatic plants, and corals. Then we mastered how to disseminate that knowledge appropriately.

Though we rely on our expertise each time we write an article for AQUAnswers, we also make sure to do extensive additional research.

We go through books, discuss the subject with other experienced hobbyist to gather more information and try our best to back up our claims by citing what we assume to be reputable sources.

We believe that this way of quality writing benefits the readers of AQUAnswers the most.

What We’d ask of Our Readers?

Writing for AQUAnswers is hard work!

Though we have a burning passion for fish keeping, writing does take a considerable amount of our time and energy.

Some of our longer articles took nearly one month to put together.
