Get an extra Heater. If one fails your fish will still be OK. Its surprising how quickly a tank can cool down if the power goes off or a heater down.
Nitrate actually encourages the growth of algae in your fish tank. Some fish feed on this kind of algae - but usually not enough, they do not consume all of it, and some consume none. Nevertheless, you will (from time to time) have to scrub your fish tank clean of the buildup of algae. If you cycle your fish tank using a biological fish tank filtration system, you can certainly create a biological environment. When you have already designed a specific biological habitat, and if you purchase a new biological filtration system, your fishes etc. will not have to adjust.
OK, you have decided you want to know how to set up a fish tank so that you can get started with your latest passion. You now know and understand that the hobby of keeping an aquarium can not only be a beautiful hobby but a very soothing one as well. Some experts even say that watching fish in an aquarium is very good for your health because of its calming values. The key is to learn how to set up a fish tank before you get too far ahead of yourself.
I say think about the fish because that will effect the next two decisions. Which substrate and plants. Substrate is the gravel or sand that goes on the base of the tank. If you go for fish that feed at the bottom of the tank the substrate needs to suit them as well as the plants. Sand or Fine Gravel is recommended for bottom feeders. Choose the easy to look after fish to start with. They tend to be cheaper and are more likely to survive if you make mistakes.
Next, install the filter and the heater if you will be using one. For an indoor freshwater aquarium fish tank a heater is rarely required. Tropical saltwater fish will generally require a heater to maintain the necessary temperature. If you are using a heater you will also need to install a thermometer in an easy-to-read location.
