Nitrate actually encourages the growth of algae in your fish tank. Some fish feed on this kind of algae - but usually not enough, they do not consume all of it, and some consume none. Nevertheless, you will (from time to time) have to scrub your fish tank clean of the buildup of algae. If you cycle your fish tank using a biological fish tank filtration system, you can certainly create a biological environment. When you have already designed a specific biological habitat, and if you purchase a new biological filtration system, your fishes etc. will not have to adjust.
The first thing you need to do is verify that all of your items are present. Now the main thing you will need to look at is the tank, but you also need to find out about any types of heaters, pumps, and filters as well. By verifying these are present you can start to check your tank out for leaks or any other types of blemishes which can lead to you not wanting to use the tank for the purpose of keeping your fish in. You may have already checked to see if your items are present, but you need to look at the tank and decide where you will want to put it at. While you are evaluating this step you need to ensure you have enough cord room available because a larger fish tank will commonly have three items to plug in and these items can easily lead to you not having enough plugs present in the area you are putting the tank in.
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.
