Choosing a fish tank

Before you buy a fish tank it is important to analyse what you want, how experienced you are and the time you want to devote to your fish. Some aquarium setups can be quite costly so it is very important to make the correct decision the first time. Here are some factors that may influence your decision.

  • Is the fish tank for an adult or a child?
  • Do you have the space?
  • Do you need a stand?
  • Water filtration
  • Water temperature
  • Power supply
  • Water purification
  • Lighting
  • How many hours are you prepared to give to your tank per month?

Setting up your aquarium

One of the most important things to remember when setting your tank up for the first time is that it is not a race. Short cuts can lead to contaminated water and cause short and long term problems for your fish. Careful selection of fish species, plant life and decorations are crucial to ensure a safe home for your new fish friends. Sometimes your fish can represent a substantial investment and rushing into it can harm the chances of having a healthy fish community. Check out our aquarium setup guide for further information.

Maintenance

Understanding what keeps your fish tank clean is vital to keeping a healthy aquarium. The inhabitants of your aquarium pollute the water and if left unattended will create a toxic environment and eventually kill the fish. Filtration and regular cleaning is the only way to ensure you will not have problems associated with contaminated water. The Nitrogen Cycle is the process that has the greatest effect on water quality and it is imperative to understand how it works when maintaining an aquarium.
