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.
Live plants are an essential presence in every aquarium for many reasons. First, they add a natural and attractive look to the aquarium, and secondly, they provide the pet fish with a natural source of food. Live plants reduce the growth of algae in the fish tank, but most importantly, live plants produce oxygen through photosynthesis and continuously add it to the water for the fish to breathe.
Remember that certain kind of fish require special modifications to be carried out to the tank in order to ensure that they remain healthy. It could be the ambient water temperature, so you will need to check the water temp every now and then, to ensure that there are no accidents. Other than the temperature, youll need to ensure that the water is aerated; you will be able to get all you need at any of top of the line pet supply stores. Maintaining a fish tank can take quite a bit of effort on your part but once you have done it a couple of times, it will seem easy. The hard part lies in actually putting your thoughts to action and getting to clean up that tank.
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!
It may be a wise investment to select a water testing kit when you are picking out your fish tank supplies. This will enable you to determine the nitrite, PH and salt content in the water. If any problems are detected these can than be quickly corrected.
