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.
Once you have bought your fish tank and set it up, you will need to add the decorations. This will be the finishing touches to the start of a very relaxing hobby.
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.
Setting up and maintaining an aquarium fish tank involves a commitment of both time and money but will reward the dedicated aquarist with years of enjoyment.
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!
