Getting started with aquariums and fishkeeping can be intimidating—especially if it’s not something you’ve ever tried doing before. There are lots of equipment options and a huge variety of fish and aquatic creatures, often making the first steps daunting in your new hobby.
This is exactly where Aquarium Friend comes in. Think of us like a good friend who happens to know a lot about aquariums. The goal of Aquarium Friend is to make it easy to start and maintain your aquarium by providing easy-to-understand, friendly, and fun information.
My name is Kerrie and I’m the founder of Aquarium Friend. I started this website with one simple mission: to help aquarium owners take care of their aquariums as efficiently and effectively as possible, so they can spend more time enjoying their fish – the whole reason we get into this wonderful hobby in the first place.
I’ve been an aquarium enthusiast since elementary school when my attempts to start a “zoo in my room” led to not one, not two, but three aquariums. I’ve been hooked ever since on the meditative and tranquil qualities of keeping aquariums and learning about fish and aquatic creatures.
Our team goes to great lengths to make sure all of the advice, guides, and product reviews you find on our site are easy to understand, comprehensive, well-researched and written with you—the aquarium enthusiast—in mind.

Dan – Content Writer
Like many aquarists, Dan developed an interest in fish and other marine life when he got his first Betta as a child. He took pride in his well-decorated tank, and his interest and thirst for knowledge quickly grew. He moved onto larger tanks, saltwater setups, and planted aquariums, but his curiosity has never faded. He’s now a dedicated hobbyist and enjoys sharing his passion with others through writing.
