Making waves in the
aquaria community.

What is AquariumKids?
AquariumKids is a website and a community created by Evan Baldonado, a teenage aquarist with a passion for all things aquatic. AquariumKids is dedicated to providing kids and their parents [and everyone else] with the very best aquarium information. We are the leading kid aquarium website on the internet, making a difference in the lives of 8,799 people and countless aquatic pets by offering articles, care sheets, videos, and more. Intrigued? Visit our about page to learn more.

What do we have to offer?

What do we do?

We educate.
AquariumKids is about “making waves” in the aquaria community, so content is a must! Looking for a comprehensive pet care guide or a fully-written set of care sheets to distribute? We've got you covered! Wondering what “anthropomorphization” is? Curious about the ethics behind fishkeeping? Our articles provide a deeper look into the world of fishkeeping. Love YouTube? The AquariumKids YouTube channel is right up your alley.
Printed care sheets

We're involved with local events.
AquariumKids has been a part of the annual Duveneck Elementary School Harvest carnival on three occasions, distributing goldfish and betta care sheets. While we discourage giving out fish to those who have not researched the commitment beforehand (we believe that our efforts helped cancel the carnival's fish booth in 2014), we are still always available to help and assist new fishkeepers! In 2015 and 2016, we worked with the carnival organizers to give out bettas instead of goldfish because we were unable to convince them to remove the fish as prizes.

AquariumKids was also a part of Get Involved Palo Alto's first “Hack for Social Good” where we published an article on climate change.

What's next?

We're always working.
We have impacted more than 8,799 people and we would love to continue “making waves” in the aquaria community. We're currently working on an e-book, designing t-shirts/merchandise, and developing a raffle/prize system for our videos, all while continuing to craft care sheets, create videos, and write articles.
