The excreted waste of our fish is expelled into the water, and will then become poisonous to the fish. To battle this toxic condition, a biological fish tank filtration system will transform the bacterium in this waste, and other particles. A biological fish tank filtration system will turn these kinds of toxicity into a relatively harmless chemical: nitrate.
Youll need enough Sand or Gravel to cover the bottom of the tank. One and a half to two inches deep at the front of the tank sloping up to about four inches at the back for the larger plants. Get some laterite that you can mix in with the bottom layer of substrate to help feed the plants. You wont need a lot. Choose plants that dont need extra light or carbon dioxide. You can always move on to the harder to keep varieties later on if you get the bug.
OK time to start. Place the aquarium in its final position, set up all the equipment like lights filter etc. but dont plug anything in yet. Clean the tank with clean water. Do not use soap or chemicals. Wash your Gravel or sand until it runs clear. Mix laterite with about a third of your substrate and spread it over the base of the tank. Add the remainder of the substrate covering the base layer evenly and landscaping it as you want it. Put a plate in the bottom of the tank and add your water pouring gently onto the plate to avoid disturbing the laterite. Add your water conditioner to remove any chlorine.
The normal life spans of the archetypal tanks are measured in years and not in months, but the life of the fishes vary from species to species. These fish have the potential to live anywhere between 3 to 7 years, and the goldfish can survive for almost 20 years.
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.
