The Marine Compatibility Guide

    Comparing Marine Aquarium Species

    Welcome to the Marine Compatibility Guide which has been designed to help you to find compatible tankmates for your saltwater fish based on your current marine aquarium setup.

    The guide is made up of three main sections, each of which can be accessed via the main menu at the top of each page or by using the quick tools further down on this page. The three main sections are...

    Species: Containing descriptions and vital information for hundreds of species of marine fish, invertebrates and corals, this section also lists some common names as well as showing some popular tankmates.

    Compatibility: Find out instantly if two species are generally known to be compatible. Displays the parameters of both in an easy to read table. You can let us know whether you think the species are compatible and see what others think.

    Tanks: Create your own by setting the size of your tank and adding species to it. The guide will then display any known issues and show you tankmates based on the filters you set.

    We hope you find this guide useful and please leave any comments you feel may benefit others. Also feel free to contact us with any feedback you may have. Enjoy!!
