Even a small aquarium fish tank is heavy - one gallon of water weighs about 10 lbs - so your new tank will require a sturdy stand. There are dedicated aquarium stands available that will provide a solid base, although a small fish tank might sit on another item of furniture. Use a layer of polystyrene tiles between the tank and the stand to even out any bumps. When setting up your aquarium try to avoid placing it in direct sunlight, which will cause algae to grow in the tank. Remember it will need to be situated near a power outlet as many items of tank equipment require a power source.

Realistically those who own a tropical tank would never want to have that many fish. Fish that are large will shift more water and have more waste than a fish with a smaller body. In addition to this, a healthy tank will have gravel, equipment, plants and decoration. This will also reduce the amount of fish that is safe to add into a new tank.

Although this is not part of the tank purchase process, in order to keep the costs lower, purchasers must also consider the fish they will buy. For starters, choosing cheaper fish is the way to go. The inexpensive fish will allow the owner to learn how to properly care for the fish and how to maintain the tank, before they go off buying the most expensive fish they can find. Therefore, starting with cheaper fish, such as gold fish or cherry barbs, will allow the owner to learn to properly maintain and care for the tank, in order to know what to do when they do decide to purchase expensive, larger fish for their tank.

This is assuming you have a back filter which fits on the tank. If not you should install the filter when it is proper, for example an under gravel filter needs to be installed before the gravel is placed in the tank. Then you will want to rinse the carbon filter you have for your tank and start the filter system up. You will also want to plug the heater in as well, but you will only do those two items when the water is at a high enough level to sustain the items.

This filter is a system designed to simply push water through a kind of filtration strainer. The strainer, as with any mechanical fish tank filtration system must be cleaned on a semi-regular basis. If you do not remember to change or clean out the filter of your mechanical fish tank filtration system when the water becomes dirtier, it will, of course, be dangerous for your fish.

Before you start selecting your "fun" fish tank decorations, there are a few things that you must have in the aquarium to keep the fish healthy. Such things as gravel and plants will need to be a part of their home but you also need a filter to keep the water clean and a method of checking the temperature of the water. While these are things that will, admittedly, take up some room in the aquarium, they must be there to insure that you have healthy fish. They most likely won`t have the appearance of decorations but they`re sure to keep your fish healthy, happy and thriving in a safe underwater environment for them.

For those looking for cheap fish tanks, choosing a glass tank is the way to go. Many individuals debate as to whether they should go with glass or acrylic when they are choosing a new fish tank. Although there is no clear cut answer, and each professional will claim one or the other is a better choice, if you are looking for lower prices on the fish tanks, glass is definitely the option to go with for purchasers who are debating the two options.
