Caring for fish can be a very rewarding hobby and there are hundreds of different types of fish for you to choose from. 

A fish tank creates a calming and relaxing atmosphere in the home. If you’re thinking about keeping fish but don’t know where to start, The Pet Charity suggests starting with a tank of temperate fish, such as white cloud minnows or Variatus platy. Temperate fish are smaller than goldfish, so you won’t have to upgrade your tank unless you decide to add more fish. They’re also quite hardy and can cope with varying temperatures, which can be damaging to tropical or coldwater fish. 

Read our caring for fish guides below for more information about keeping your fish healthy and happy.
