Making waves in the aquaria community.


Letter from the Fish Room:

     You are currently visiting AquariumKids.com, a website dedicated to providing kids and their parents [and everyone else] with the very best aquarium info. We are the leading kid aquarium website on the internet with many fun things to offer you including care sheets, videos, and much more.

     I am honored to be providing information to help educate you on how to take care of fish. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me at evanb [at] aquariumkids [dot] com.

     Sincerely,
     Evan Baldonado

Current work:

     Right now, I am currently working increasing AquariumKids.com's presence on social media including Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and YouTube. Be sure to connect with us on those sharing platforms! I've just uploaded some new videos including The Top 5 Peaceful Freshwater Aquarium Community Fish and The Top 5 Freshwater Aquarium Fish For Beginners!

     In addition, I am exploring classroom pets, the ethics of fishkeeping, and earth day for aquarists. Check back soon for the newest updates!

Our history:

     At the 2012 Duveneck Harvest Carnival, kids could win their very own pet goldfish by tossing a ping-pong ball into a cup. With inadequate care, many of these fish sadly passed away.

     The very next year, at the same carnival, I was prepared: the AquariumKids.com Goldfish Care Sheet was available to the public and it was a success. Many of the goldfish survived and thrived as a result of readily-available information.

     At the 2015 carnival, kids could win Bettas instead of goldfish so I created a Betta Care Sheet! Again, the response was overwhelming and many families are still caring for their happy Betta fish.

     Hopefully, there will be no more fish games at the carnival in the future. Taking care of a fish is a commitment as fish are living beings requiring respect, not things to be given away to people who aren't prepared to care for them. However, if the fish game does come back, you can expect to see me there at the booth, helping provide quality information for soon-to-be fishkeepers.

What people are saying:

"We don't have a goldfish - but this is impressive! We read it all - maybe we should now get a goldfish!"
     - Barbara V. (Palo Alto, California)

"Thank you for sharing your website on how to care for a goldfish. My children won goldfish at the Harvest Carnival a few weeks ago and we have been using your website to help us care for them."
     - Michele W. (Palo Alto, California)

"Evan's article was great. So easy to understand and very well written. Can you contact the Harvest Carnival staff and have them actually stick the labels with the website information on the bag that the goldfish are in, so that everyone who gets a goldfish at the Harvest Carnival has access to this information? If the parents and kids read it, the goldfishes have a better rate of survival."
     - Vini J. (Palo Alto, California)
