5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, interesting and easy to understand July 29, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I find this magazine to be interesting and very informative. I also subscribe to Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine (TFH). By comparison, Aquarium Fish is easier to understand and more for the beginner to intermediate hobbyist. TFH discusses issues that are more technical and many of the articles may appeal to more advanced hobbyists. I highly recommend Aquarium Fish Magazine because each issue covers many of the issues/problems that all hobbyists face (whether beginner or advanced). It explores many of the popular saltwater and freshwater species that are found in households. I read the magazine from cover to cover as it contains many interesting and educational articles. The color pictures are plentiful and pleasing to the eye. I recommend subscribing to both TFH and Aquarium Fish as each magazine has something new and different to offer. Two very excellent magazines!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good magazine, but... November 14, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I love this magazine, I do. But alot of the time I feel like it should be titled "Saltwater Aquarium Fish." Most of the fish talked about are saltwater species, although they do have freshwater on occasion, and the topics covered can get a bit repetitious. However, this is one of the few aquarium magazines out there, and it does have excellent information for the hobbyist. I highly recommend this magazine for any fish lover, especially if you have children. The section exclusively devoted to children's questions doesn't make them seem insignificant to adult's questions -- instead, they treat the kids with respect, as the future of the hobby. Kudos for respecting all questions, from every age!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful magazine for the fish lover! December 23, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is with a doubt one of the best fish magazines available. Each monthly issue is packed with great articles and excellent monthly columns.
Topics range from ponds to cichlids to saltwater and virtually everything in between.
The magazine features many monthly sections including Freshwater and Saltwater question/answer sections, book reviews, online reviews, and feature articles by the biggest names in the Aquarium hobby.
I've tried almost every fish magazine available and this is the one that I've been subscribed to even as others came and went.
Subscribe today you won't be sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mainly for beginners January 7, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
In my opinion, this magazine used to be better than it is now.
I stopped subscribing when it got to the point that the great majority of articles were clearly written for rank beginners and very repetitive of other articles in recent issues. I don't need to read yet another article on how to take care of guppies or explaining what a barb is.
Also, as with most hobby magazines, there isn't much copy editing or fact-checking.
Another beef I have about this and most other aquarium mags is that a large proportion of the articles are about tropical reef organisms and reef aquarium issues, when keepers of reef or other marine tanks are only a small percentage of aquarists. They, and we, would be better served by moving this material to specialized salt-water publications.
On the other hand, Aquarium Fish does still have some good writers on certain topics. You just have to wade through a lot of repetition of basic information to find them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mag March 19, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This magazine generally has very helpful articles, and is a good resource for any hobbyist. I agree with the other reviewer that alot of this magazine is geared toward beginners, but not always. They have articles that experience hobbyists can learn from or might find interesting. The amount of material is a little thin, I wish it was a thicker magazine. But for the price, you can't complain.

2.0 out of 5 stars Geared for kids May 10, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
My biggest problem with the publication is that it is overly focused on kids. Letters often include 10 year olds proclaiming their 5+ year fish keeping careers asking questions that are stricly beginner fodder. Aside from the occasional article on a newly identified species, the rest is info you can just get on line. Let me save you some money....In a year the magazine largely covered the following: make sure you know about the fish you are buying before you buy them, make sure you have the right parameters in the tank, and make sure you have compatible tankmates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best aquarium magazine to read. September 23, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I really enjoy reading this magazine. It has frequent profiles of common fish, a kids section(Hey! Your never too old to act like a kid!), and interesting articles. I'd recommend this magazine for beginners, as well as the expert. It's a great way to learn about our finned friends, and if your ready for an aquarium in your home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aquarium Fish Magazine September 23, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I really enjoy this magazine. I have 3 aquariums (55 gal., 20 gal., 10 gal.) at present (have had many more in the past) and have enjoyed tropical fish for years. This magazine has helpful hints for keeping fish healthy as well as really good ideas on how to set up an aquarium and "decorating" ideas. The articles about the fish are interesting and helpful in determining whether or not that would be a fish for me!
