The gravel lines the bottom of the tank and can be chosen in clear, white, or neon colors.

During this time you will want to make sure the tank is not leaking, the heater is warming the tank up, and the filter is working properly. After this, you will be able to have your tank building up the bacteria and other items the fish will need to survive in your tank. Once the week time frame is up your fish tank will be ready for the tropical fish that you love. Then you will want to go to a reputable pet store and buy some fish for your tank. Now again you may be anxious to buy a dozen or so fish at one time. However, this will be a mistake and you should buy at most four fish at any one time. This will allow your tank to adapt to the fish and allow the fish to slowly adjust to the new tank without overwhelming them with the change all at once.

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.

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.

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.

They are fitted with a window for feeding the fish, have a condensation tray, a compartment for installing the lighting unit, and are light in weight.

For those who are price conscious, especially those who are new to caring for and maintaining the tanks in the home, starting small, rather than choosing a larger tank, is also advisable. Although the larger tanks are capable of housing more fish, they will cost more money, and are much more difficult to maintain, especially if the individual does not have experience caring for the fish in their home. A smaller tank can be a great option, and if properly placed in the home, can still give off the grandiose look that the home owner is trying to get, when purchasing a new tank.
