About Us

Aquarium Source is a resource where aquarists can learn and find reviews on the best products for their tanks. This community is passionate and dedicated to creating a thriving marine ecosystem, and we want to help any way we can.

Even the most experienced aquarium owners need help and advice from time to time. This is a hobby that requires you to learn and understand a wide range of information if you want to have a healthy tank. Sometimes the amount of stuff you need to know can get a little overwhelming!

We hope that the Aquarium Source site can help ease your mind and help point you in the right direction when you need a little help. We’ve been aquarium hobbyists for years and are always trying to learn more and test different ways to make our tanks thrive. Sharing our findings and tricks that we’ve learned over time is not only fun for us, but a great way to help our peers.

As time goes on we’ll be continually adding new info and content to the site that we think will be helpful to other aquarists. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or ideas for new topics we should cover on the site!
