Below you will find six simple steps as to how to set up a fish tank. These steps are just to help you scratch the surface and you should be responsible enough to find the materials to get the exact information that will be needed. At least this will give you sort of a list of how the steps should be followed.
Even a small aquarium fish tank is heavy - one gallon of water weighs about 10 lbs - so your new tank will require a sturdy stand. There are dedicated aquarium stands available that will provide a solid base, although a small fish tank might sit on another item of furniture. Use a layer of polystyrene tiles between the tank and the stand to even out any bumps.
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.
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.
That small fish tank can give you all that you want from a pet without the liability of having a pet. Fish can be trained just as well as any other pet -- they recognize you and they do small somersaults when they see you coming close to the aquarium. Goldfish can live up to 10 years in the aquarium.
