Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - Welcome -

HOW ARE you lik­ing the new look mag­a­zine? I’m guess­ing from the string of emails that I’m get­ting, and the pos­i­tive feed­back while out and about, that you ap­prove of the new style. I hope so, be­cause we’re re­ally en­joy­ing re­design­ing it! This month I’m ex­cited about killifish – those won­der­ful ‘mail or­der’ pack­ages you can buy as eggs and hatch at home. Steve Baker has done ster­ling work writ­ing them up as our main fresh­wa­ter fish fea­ture, but even that wasn’t enough to give him an ad­e­quate ‘killie hit’. Take a peek at what’s swim­ming in Steve’s step-bystep set-up on page 75 – see if you can’t spot the cou­ple of kil­lies that came home with him af­ter a shop­tour.

Look­ing for­ward to longer nights and brighter sea­sons? Me too, very much so. That’s why I’ve com­mis­sioned a lit­tle ‘pond­spi­ra­tion’ piece for you on page 58. If you’re not a pond­keeper al­ready, I hope this’ll give you mo­ti­va­tion to start. En­joy!

Swap out your over­sized marines on page 68.
