    Hello everyone,

             I am thinking of subscribing to a freshwater and maybe saltwater magazine. Could people give some suggestions on what are good ones? Please comment if you subscribe to any yourself.

    Thanks!

    Where are you located?  What level of fishkeeper do you consider yourself to be?

    I am American, and I would consider myself at a moderate level. As I have never tried any complex freshwater or saltwater set-ups, I think that is as high as I would rate myself. Having said that, I do enjoy reading about fish or techniques that I do not  possess or do not currently have the skill level to pull off. You have to learn from somewhere. 

    Ideally, my life goal is to have two large tanks, a planted freshwater and a reef saltwater, with a focus on tiny fish, i.e. around 2″

    I’m not familiar with everything that is available in the US.  Tropical Fish Hobbyist is worth having a look at, it covers both fresh and salt water areas of the hobby at an intermediate level.  As it’s a US publication is should be fairly easy to source to get a sample, and if you’re subscribing, they do a digital version which is cheaper.  You might be able to get your hands on an imported copy of Practical Fishkeeping magazine, which is a magazine published here in the UK.  However, it will likely be much more expensive than TFH, and it has recently been edited to appeal to beginners in the hobby – so might not be what you’re looking for.

    Possibly the best magazine in the world for freshwater hobbyists is Amazonas, which has recently been translated into English.  My advice would be to find a copy of any that are available to you, and have read to see which appeals to you the most.

    Amazonas is very good and now available in the United States.

    If you ever become interested in taking your planted tank to the “next level” I would suggest reading the free online magazine at http://www.aquascapingworld.com and/or subscribing to ADA’s aquajournal. It is available in digital only for those who speak English. It is available from http://www.coverleaf.com

    I will keep those in mind. 

    Any suggestion on a saltwater magazine? Is Coral magazine any good? It is related to the Amazonas magazine previously mentioned.
