Yes I know, if you didn’t have a computer you wouldn’t be reading this. But the point I am making is that you can use pet shops for your research just as well when you are starting a tropical freshwater fish aquarium. Today with lots of competition for your cash they know their stuff.
Lots of folk have got internet access these days but more people around the world haven’t believe it or not. We all go immediately to the internet for help in almost everything today and there’s nothing wrong with that but when we ain’t got internet access we can use the nearest pet shop.
In addition, a number of websites try to get you in and then blatantly sell to you without giving you much information at all and this is certainly not what anyone wants. Again, lots of other websites do actually give good, solid information only and sell very little or nothing at all as their main agenda is to genuinely help folk in a new hobby.
So if you’ve not got internet access, or even if you have, try the local pet shop. They know their stuff y’know and they, of course want your business so they must give the most up to date and accurate information. When you start a freshwater fish aquarium you’ll find most pet shops are very well informed about starting up and how to avoid the pitfalls so many folk make.
So don’t be shy. Get in that pet shop and ask questions before you do anything else and I bet you anything it’ll save you money, time and loss of hobby. Go on, don’t delay do it today.
