Aquarium and Fishkeeping

About the Level 2 Aquarium and Fishkeeping Certificate

If you don’t know your freshwater fish from your tropical ones, then maybe this Level 2 course in aquariums and fishkeeping is for you. Keeping fish can be a relaxing hobby and can have many other benefits. However, if you are interested in keeping or working with fish, then you will have to make sure you know all there is to know about caring for them.

This course is spread out over seven fascinating, fish-filled modules. These units cover everything from fish anatomy and successful breeding, to water temperature, biological filtration and the importance of ornamental materials. Altogether the course should take around 110 hours to complete, how at learndirect, we recommend you take all the time you need.
