Think about where the tank is going to go. Avoid direct sunlight is crucial and somewhere where you can enjoy it without rearranging the furniture too much. Get it right first time. Moving a full aquarium and stand is not an easy job and one that you should avoid whenever possible. Every gallon weighs ten pounds!
Even a small aquarium fish tank is heavy - one gallon of water weighs about 10 lbs - so your new tank will require a sturdy stand. There are dedicated aquarium stands available that will provide a solid base, although a small fish tank might sit on another item of furniture. Use a layer of polystyrene tiles between the tank and the stand to even out any bumps.
With regards to the fish you need to decide if you are going to have a saltwater fish tank or a fresh water fish tank.
Once the tank is full turn everything on and let it run until the water is up to temperature. Now add your plants, putting the large ones at the back and leaving space for them to grow.
When setting up your aquarium try to avoid placing it in direct sunlight, which will cause algae to grow in the tank. Remember it will need to be situated near a power outlet as many items of tank equipment require a power source.
