For beginners feed your fish two to three times per day what they will consume in three minutes. This is a very basic rule and more applies to small fish and goldfish.
This does not apply well to large fish, as I have seen Oscars and similar fish consume far more than they need in three minutes.
Also large predators often only need to be fed once every day or two. I think the rule of feeding a fish based on their eye size better for large fish.
Bettas in cool bowls will often only need a couple of pellets per day, Bettas in warmer (over 76 F) tanks or bowls or being prepped for breeding should be fed a varied diet twice per day.
news is that only a few supplies are needed to build a basic fish tank stand.

The Results can be very rewarding. To go more in-depth in the breeding of guppies, you will want at least three tanks. The first tank would be the breeding and display tank. Adult guppies used for breeding would be kept in this tank. A ten gallon tank would do, but twenty is better. Male guppies can be very persistent in their attempts at mating a female guppy, especially when they are expecting can be stressed by this persistence. For this reason it is better to have at least two females for every male guppy. Keep in mind that you do not want to overcrowd the fish either. There is the basic rule of thumb of one inch of fish per gallon of water. It is usually safer to stick with the minimum number of fish for healthy reproduction of the guppy breeders.

This article will give you a general introduction into the three main types of saltwater tanks. When getting started with saltwater it is recommended to get the biggest tank you can accommodate. Bigger tanks give you more room for error when it comes to water quality and this is especially important for salt water fish and invertebrates. There are basically three types of saltwater aquarium setups: Fish Only, Fish Only with Live Rock - FOWLR, Reef Tanks.This freshwater aquarium setup article explains how to set up a basic freshwater fish tank. We'll start with a short list of the equipment you'll need and then give you a step by step guide on setting up or starting your first freshwater fish tank.
Information on some of the aquarium water terms that you may encounter. We try to keep it simple. Anyone wanting to be successful at the tropical fish hobby must put forth the time necessary to understand some basic fish tank water chemistry. This will help your fish to not only survive but thrive! You will need kits that will test for the following: Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, pH, Water Hardness, Chlorine and Chloramine.Though seahorses inhabit a diverse array of habitats, in the home aquarium they need the same basic care and water quality as other fishes. The main difference with seahorses is their sensitivity to changes in water quality, temperature (most like a typical 76 to 78 degree range, though some species are temperate), and even light. When setting up a seahorse tank there are several factors that must be considered. First and foremost is the filter, there should be no air bubbles and a low flow rate (this does not necessarily mean low gph). Seahorses like a fairly turbulence free tank, and air bubbles can lead to the dreaded Gas Bubble Disease (to be discussed later in the article). The next most important thing is to get a tank that is tall, seahorses are known for their intricate courtship rituals that take up a lot of vertical space. Substrate can vary by what decor you are looking for. Just remember that whatever substrate you chose, it should not have too many sharp edges for theseahorse to get cuts from. I prefer to use a small crushed coral or sand substrate. The last consideration in decor is hitching posts; rocks, plants, and corals (faux and real) should be chosen by their ability to be used as a hitching spot. Depending on species of seahorse, the size and maximum diameter of the hitching posts will vary.
