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.
Ammonia can be a problem when setting up a new tank as the bacteria that breaks down ammonia is not yet present. Over several months beneficial bacteria (nitrosomonas) will develop in the tank. The bacteria breaks down the toxic ammonia into nitrites. Because of the time it takes for the beneficial bacteria to develop in the tank it is recommended that you do not introduce fish for at least two weeks after setting up your tank.
Why a tropical fish tank set up as opposed to a cold water fish tank set up, simply because it will give you a much wider choice of fish for virtually no extra effort. First off select your aquarium. Start with something between 20 and 40 gallons. A great size for beginners, big enough to be interesting, small enough to be easy to look after. When youve got the hang of it you can always but a bigger tank or get a second one. make sure that you get an aquarium with a power filter that comes as standard. (You need to|All you need to do is} make sure that it can pump five times the contents of the tank every hour, so if its a 20 gallon tank, it needs to pump 100 gallons per hour, if its a 40 gallon, then its 200 gallons per hour. Simple maths but important. If you have a pump that is too small your fish will die.
