Hello

I am new to fish keeping, people keep giving me fish, so I thought I had better do some research on them

Welcome to the forum!

Always a good idea to research fish, preferably before aquiring the fish (which unfortunately isn't possible if your being gifted with them).

Yes I was kind of chucked in at the deep end, but the fish are all alive and seem healthy

Welcome to AA! Glad you're doing your research, like Purrbox said, it's better that you do your research before you get them, but this is great site that will help you keep the fish you already have as healthy as possible.

Good luck : ) Keep doing your research! : )

Welcome to the best site to get educated fast (I did) - You may want to tell us what fish you have, what size tank, filter etc - to better help you. We have different forums dedicated to specific topics - freshwater, saltwater, planted tanks etc - find one that fits your setup and fill us in on the details
