Aquarium Fish International, formerly known as Aquarium Fish Magazine or AFM for short is slated to run its last issue of what was once the leading publication on all things aquarium in the United States. As a youngun’ just getting his start in the nineties Aquarium Fish Magazine was an indispensable resource for learning about news, animals and techniques for keeping everything from african cichlids, rainbowfish, plecos, planted tanks, reef tanks, corals and we eagerly awaited every month’s new issue.
This magazine is a great resource for those who have chosen fish-keeping as their hobby. Each issue features excellent, well-research articles by acclaimed journalists, photographers and editors. The magazine is written in a conversational, easy to understand tone so that readers from a diverse set of backgrounds can knows the ins and outs of becoming a successful fish keeper. In Aquarium Fish International readers will also see a handful of product reviews, including fresh and saltwater aquariums.
Just a little over two years ago the famous (FAMA) closed its doors but at the time at least its writers and resources were combined into AFI. This time around, AFI and the remnants of FAMA will be closed for good, with the October 2012 issue to be the final printed issue of Aquarium Fish International that you’ll be able to pick up on newsstands. Although the aquarium hobby is as strong and exciting as ever, the growing costs of print publishing and the rise of blogs like Reef Builders makes it more and more challenging for physical magazines to exist.
