Firstly, tempting as it may be to start with marine fish, I would advise against it. The fish are a lot more expensive so any mistakes can be very costly. Secondly, eighty percent of people who start the aquarium keeping hobby give up within twelve months. With marine fish there a lot more to think about, more to learn and the cost of equipment is higher. Make it easy on yourself and start with a freshwater tropical fish tank set up.
If you want to lower maintenance requirements, as well as keeping your fish healthy and your water clear and beautiful, accentuating the ambiance of your home, then pick the perfect filtration system for your fish tank. Make it simple. Consider the specific requirements to best suit the needs of your fish. You have to take into account that the water volume and shape of your fish tank, the kind of fish you keep, as well as the exact amount of food your fish will need all factor in to the equation.
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.
Now, think about the fish which fish you want, dont buy them but do think about what fish you want. Is this going to be a species tank or a community tank. I like community tanks simply because I like to see how the fish interact with each other. Choose some top middle and bottom feeders to balance the tank. Make sure that they all get on together. A bit of research and planning will avoid potential problems later. Most aquarium shops will advice on compatibility of fish.
Usually the fish dont become old and die, but get eaten by others when they grow weak. As macabre as that may seem, thats a fact when it comes to fishes, of course, the tank could always do them in first especially if you havent taken care of it.
