When shopping online, glass tanks are going to the cheap fish tanks, rather than acrylic for various reasons. They are cheaper for shipping purposes, and require fewer specialized tools to construct. The acrylic tanks might cost less money for some tank builders to make, but since they are going to cost so much more to ship, they will end up being a pricier option when chosen. Glass is also the perfect option for any size tank the purchaser is considering. So, whether they want a small tank, mid sized tank, or the largest aquarium in their home, glass is the perfect option. They do not scratch easily, maintain clarity, and are easy to maintain and keep clean, as long as the owner keeps on top of the maintenance of the tank.
After you have set the tank on a sturdy table or stand you will want to take the gravel that you have for your aquarium, preferably, the gravel is some you have found from the store and rinse this off. By rinsing this item off under water, it will be easy for you to remove any of the dust which is leftover, but you can also be rinsing off any chemicals which may have remained on the rocks form the bags they were stored in. Then you will want to take and spread the gravel evenly on the bottom of your tank. Now the key here is you want to have at least a half inch if not a full inch deep of gravel for the bottom of your aquarium. If you go to shallow on this, you fish can easily dig down to the glass, but also the deeper the gravel will provide more of a trap of the particles which are present.
Plants are also used as fish tank decorations. These can be real plants or they can be plastic and artificial ones. Your fish won`t really care nor will they have a preference. The fish will just use them as a way to play Hide and Seek with the other fish as well as you. As soon as you`ve set up the chosen plants, sit back and watch how the fish use them for recreational purposes. It`s so much fun to see them playing with their tank mates. You`ll probably get caught up in this for hours at a time.
