Getting a fish tank can be exciting and often one of the first things you will want to do is run out and get new fish at the exact same time. This is when you need to know about how to properly set up your tropical fish tanks to ensure you do not kill the new fish you are getting and quickly get discouraged and take down the tank. However, by learning more about how to set your tank up properly, you will see the fish you want to get will be happy and easily start to provide you with hours of entertainment. Here are some of the steps you will want to take on how to set up your tank to ensure your fish are going to be happy.
A 30-gallon saltwater aquarium is probably the smallest tank you should consider. A fish tank of this size will provide sufficient surface area to allow adequate exchange of oxygen into the water and to provide a comfortable swimming environment for your fish. The oxygen supply in the water together with the water temperature will determine the success or otherwise of your fish keeping hobby. Tropical saltwater fish require a water temperature of about 75 degrees F. The warmer water in the saltwater aquarium will tend to deplete the oxygen in the water which means that the surface area becomes important. The addition of aeration equipment is usually desirable to increase the oxygen concentration. Aeration can usually be provided in conjunction with your filtration equipment.
There are various rock formations that you can buy especially for your fish tank. These work out to be very entertaining for your fish as most of them love to dive into and explore these little "caves." You can even set up some tunnel like arrangements with these rocks to give the fish a chance to really explore their own caves. Again, you`ll find that the fish love to play Hide and Seek with their tank mates with the perfect environment to do so. You may not have thought of your fish as being spelunkers, but once you set up their cave kingdom for them with the rocks, you`re going to be in for one of the most amazing times you`ve experienced while watching your fish enjoy themselves.
