Affiliate Disclosure

Welcome to ModestFish, a website dedicated to helping aquarium enthusiasts successfully run a freshwater aquarium and create a nurturing habitat for happy fish.

From beginners to seasoned aquarists, our mission is to provide everyone with the knowledge, products, and tools needed to enjoy the fascinating world of aquarium keeping. We do this in part through the use of affiliate links with the Amazon affiliate program, which supports our work and passion for sharing the joy of fishkeeping with others.

2. What are affiliate links?

Affiliate links are specialized tracking URLs that connect our site with Amazon. When you click on one of these links and make a purchase, we receive a small commission. This commission does not affect the price you pay and supports our ability to offer valuable, free content. By using affiliate links, we can continue to provide insights, recommendations, and assistance to aquarium lovers everywhere, fostering a community of care and respect for aquatic life.

3. Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance

Our partnership with Amazon is built on shared values of trustworthiness, quality, and customer satisfaction. Amazon’s extensive selection of aquarium products aligns with our commitment to recommending only the best for our readers. We believe that a wide variety of quality options allows our readers to find the perfect products to suit their individual needs, enhancing their aquarium experience.

4. Transparent Earnings Disclaimer

We strive for transparency in all that we do at ModestFish. While we do earn commissions from affiliate links, this does not change the price you pay or influence our recommendations. Our aim is to guide you towards the right products for your specific needs, allowing you to enjoy your aquarium hobby without any worries about hidden motives.

5. Commitment to Honest Reviews

Honesty and integrity are at the heart of our product reviews. We purchase every product we review with our own money and never accept payments for promotional purposes. Our real-world testing, combined with insights from other users and our own experiences as aquarium experts, ensures that our reviews are thorough, unbiased, and truly helpful.

6. Privacy Considerations

Your privacy is a top priority for us. While using our affiliate links, rest assured that your personal information is protected. For a comprehensive understanding of our privacy practices and how we ensure the security of your data, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

7. Invitation to Contact

Your feedback, questions, or concerns about our affiliate disclosure are always welcome. We strive to maintain open communication with our readers. Feel free to connect with us through our Contact Page, and we’ll respond promptly.

8. Clear Disclosure Location

Transparency is key to building trust. Our affiliate disclosure is easily accessible in the footer of every page, and we will also display “Commissions Earned” under every affiliate link on the site. This ensures that you are fully informed of our affiliation with Amazon at every step of your journey with us.

9. Consistent Tone and Language

At ModestFish, we aim to be your friendly expert, translating complex aquarium topics into easy-to-understand information. This disclosure follows the same approach, ensuring clarity and alignment with our overall tone.

Compliance with all relevant regulations, including the Amazon affiliate program and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines, is a critical aspect of our operation. We pledge to uphold these standards with diligence, reflecting our dedication to ethical business practices and our respect for our readers.
