Welcome To AquariumReference.org
Marine Aquarium Species Database

The purpose of this website is to provide necessary information on the identification, behavior and care of the animals we keep in our aquariums. And to provide information on which animals are best kept in captivity and those not suited for aquarium keeping. My main interest is marine aquaria, but in the future, I may cover freshwater more thoroughly.

My primary focus is on education and conservation. To successfully keep animals in our aquariums it is our responsibility to recreate the animal's natural environment as closely as possible, so the animals not only survive, but thrive. In order to help protect our natural environments I strongly believe in keeping captive raised animals whenever possible. More and more captive raised marine fish and invertebrates are becoming available every day.

Although this website is directed towards aquarium hobbyists, the information that it provides is useful for scuba divers, educators, researchers, and anyone else who has an interest in marine animals.
