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.

When the tank is tested for bacteria and nitrogen safety, then the tank is ready for occupants. However, only two fish each week should be added. New inhabitants into a tank change the tank`s environment. When first starting a tank, consider species that are resilient such as White Clouds and then introduce species like Tiger Barbs. Consider stocking species that enjoy different parts of a tank, this will lead to a tank that is more appealing to watch. Certain breeds like to swim near the top of a tank; these include Betta`s and Hatchet fish. Fish that prefer the bottom of a tank are Catfish or Cory`s and fish that generally swim in the middle of a tank are Angels, Goldfish and Rainbows. Fish that prefer the middle of the aquarium are usually the prettiest.

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.

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.

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.

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.
