A look at the features


Browse fish with ease

Extensive A-Z of tropical fish and plants.

We have an extensive, hand-curated, database of aquarium fish and plants, laid out in a clear A-Z list.  For speed of access, our complete A-Z list is split across three tabs. 

Every fish and plant in our app has it's own bespoke information profile, which includes an image and an array of data including general care information, health, compatibility and tank requirements.

Powerful search features

Locate fish by names, care needs or compatibility parameters.

Sometimes you need to identify a particular fish or find species that suit a particular setup;  Our app has a wide selection of filtering tools that can help you narrow down or discover fish and plants based on combinations of biological properties, or by physical traits.

Our database has an extensive list for synonyms, helping you to locate fish and plants which are sold under a wide variety of common names.


Keep track of your favourite species

Great for hobbyists, or for your next shopping list!

If you are building a home aquarium, you can easily mark individual fish and plant profiles as part of your collection and view them later. You can also add your own personal notes to each and every profile.

Separate to the collection list is a favourites list, allowing you to mark species for later viewing or perhaps for later purchase.
