The Tropical Fish Aquarium Forum, dedicated to discussion and education about tropical fish care and aquariums including freshwater fish, saltwater fish, the coral reef, and aquarium fish keeping, welcomes you.

Tropical fish are fascinating creatures. However, whether a freshwater or saltwater aquarium, these ecosystems require care and attention, especially when a coral reef is involved. The Tropical Fish Aquarium Forum is a family friendly website where members can discuss tropical fish, aquarium fish, aquarium plants, aquarium lighting and other aquarium supply, reefs, ponds and more. Whether you are an aquarium fish expert or a beginner, keep freshwater fish or saltwater fish, you will find that you are in good company here.

Ask and answer aquarium related questions in our forums. Read about aquarium fish species in our fish profiles database. Keep track of your aquarium, its occupants, and water parameters in our Aquarium Log. Browse and add to our aquarium fish photo galleries. Chat with other fish keepers in real time. There's a lot going on at the Tropical Fish Aquarium Forum at and we welcome you to be a part of it.
