About Me

Welcome to Betterfishkeeping.com, where fishkeeping enthusiasts can find everything they need to know about caring for their aquatic friends.

My name is Irma Bense, and I am the founder of this website.

I have been passionate about fishkeeping for as long as I can remember, and I’m excited to share my knowledge and experiences with you.

As a child, I spent hours watching fish swimming around in my uncle’s aquarium, and I was fascinated by their movements and colors.

I begged my parents to get me an aquarium, and finally, they relented.

My first tank was a small, simple setup with just a few fish, but I quickly became hooked on the hobby.

Over the years, I have learned a lot about fish care and aquarium maintenance.

I have experimented with different types of aquariums, from freshwater to saltwater setups, and have become an expert in the field.

I have bred numerous species of fish from show guppies, platies, cory catfish, German blue rams to different types of apistogramma.

I have also faced my fair share of challenges, including dealing with sick fish, and stubborn algae and maintaining the delicate balance of an aquarium’s ecosystem.

Through my experiences, I realized that there was a need for a comprehensive resource for fish keepers from someone with boots on the ground.

And so, Betterfishkeeping.com was born.

Our website offers a wealth of information on fish care, species guides, aquarium setup and maintenance, troubleshooting, and more in both freshwater and saltwater setups.

But more than just a resource, I want Betterfishkeeping.com to be a community for fish enthusiasts.

I am always available to answer your questions and provide guidance.

I am passionate about helping others discover the joys of fishkeeping and how to get the most out of their love for aquariums.

So, if you have any questions or just want to say hello, don’t hesitate to reach out via my email info@betterfishkeeping.com.

I am always happy to hear from fellow fish enthusiasts and I personally answer every email.
