Fishkeeping is a popular hobby concerned with keeping fish in a home aquarium or garden pond. The first person to breed a tropical fish in Europe was Pierre Carbonnier, who founded one of the oldest public Aquaria in Paris in 1850.
Fish-keepers are often known as "aquarists", since many of them are not solely interested in keeping fish. The hobby can be broadly divided into three specific disciplines according to the type of water the fish originate-
- Brackish water aquarium
- Marine Fish-tank /Aquarium
Freshwater fishkeeping is by far the most popular branch of the hobby, with even small pet stores often selling a variety of freshwater fish, such as goldfish, guppies, and angelfish, mollies and guppies are among those most easily raised in captivity, but aquarists also regularly breed many of cichlid types, catfish and killifish.
Brackish water aquarium
A brackish-water aquarium is an aquarium where the water is brackish (semi-salty). The range of "saltiness" varies greatly, from near freshwater to near marine and is often referred to as specific gravity (SG) or salinit. Brackish water aquaria are a popular specialization within the fishkeeping hobby. Many species of fish traded as freshwater species are actually true brackish species, for example mollies, Florida flag fish, and some cichlids and various species of puffer fish, goby, flatfish, and gar.
Marine Fish-tank /Aquarium
A marine aquarium is an aquarium that keeps marine plants and animals in a contained environment. Marine aquaria are further subdivided by hobbyists into fish only (FO), fish only with live rock (FOWLR), and reef aquaria. Fish only tanks often showcase large or aggressive marine fish species and generally rely on mechanical and chemical filtration.
Fish only with live rock (FOWLR) and reef tanks use live rock, a material composed of coral skeletons harboring beneficial nitrogen waste metabolizing bacteria, as a means of more natural biological filtration.
Ideal aquarium ecology reproduces the balance found in nature in the closed system of an aquarium. In practice it is virtually impossible to maintain a perfect balance. Typically, an aquarium keeper must actively maintain balance in the small ecosystems that aquaria provide.
Regular cyclical lighting is used in aquariums to simulate day and night. This is beneficial for fish and invertebrates since it establishes a routine, enables them to rest, and makes them feel more secure.
