Although it takes a small army to maintain the large Atlanta, GA aquarium in the featured image the fundamental principles are very similar to home sized aquariums that can be maintained by one person.  This site will also focus on how to make maintenance as trouble free as possible so that as many people as possible are able to enjoy this hobby.

Aquariums can be thoroughly enjoyed on an endless number of levels and we will show you how to get into the hobby as little as $20.  This website is also intended to be your guide as you grow in your understanding and sophistication.  Aquarium systems are an amazing learning tool and you will learn about water quality and filtration, biology, living ecosystems, microbiology, chemistry and more!  This is in addition to having a wonderful and peaceful aquarium for you to visually enjoy!

Although sponsored by Aquaripure LLC, this site is not intended to promote any specific project or recommend any one method of aquarium maintenance and filtration over another.  It is to provide a broad overview of the options available and the way they can interact with an aquarium ecosystem and each other.  We will provide links and suggest products from several different websites.  These are just suggestions and there are countless products and avenues for you in the growth of your hobby but we hope you will find out suggestions useful and even invaluable as you explore this site and grow in the hobby.

It would be impossible to cover all aspects of the hobby on one modest website but hopefully this will be a comprehensive and useful resource for both beginner and advanced aquarists as they both begin and advance through the hobby as well as more experienced aquarists who wish to broaden their knowledge and possibly consider a different perspective on aquarium set up, filtration and maintenance.
