About Me

I’ve been keeping fish and invertebrates in aquariums for over 5 years. Over the years, I’ve kept more than 15 different species of fish and invertebrates. But my love for aquariums has only grown stronger.

The beginning of my fish keeping journey was very difficult as I barely had any knowledge about fish care. I believed whatever the guys at the fish store said. All the fish I had bought in the beginning died within days. I realised that keeping fish healthy wasn’t as simple as it looks, and started researching about their care.

I soon came to know that I wasn’t alone and that most beginner fish keepers make the same mistakes that I did when starting out. Due to lack of information, way too many fish lose their lives in aquariums. This is the primary reason I started this website – to guide new and experienced fish keepers alike with as detailed information as I can get.

On Paradise In A Tank, you can find profiles for many species of fish and invertebrates. These profiles will not only give you all the basic info you need, but will also help you decide which species are suitable for your aquarium.

Apart from this, I’ve written many articles on aquarium fish care, plant care and aquarium setups, among many other topics.

When I was researching on fish care, I found that many websites give info that is either incomplete, or left me wanting more information. I try to cover as much knowledge as I can in each of my articles, so you get all the info you require to make decisions. Because no one wants their fish to suffer because of lack of (or incomplete) knowledge.
