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.

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.

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.

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.

There are plenty of tank ornaments that allow your fish to dive, hide in and explore. These can be underwater castles, houses, and anything else that you can think of. Manufacturers have been very creative when it comes to fish tank decorations. Any theme that you want your fish tank to have, you`ll be able to find exactly what you need. Don`t feel that you need to do all fish tank decorating at once. Take your time in choosing the theme you want to follow as well as each item you select after that. Add an item here and there so that you`re not rushed when choosing them. In the end, you`ll have an aquarium that reflects your personality and provides a great place for your fish to play and grow.

The plastic plants which are easy to install in your fish tank come in various designs, such as arrowhead, green and yellow spike, hair-grass and many more. They should definitely form a useful part or your fish tank supplies. Cleaning the fish tank will be more problematic than it needs to be if you do not have the necessary fish tank supplies. Algae growth on the sides of the fish tank and collection of waste material can pose as a threat to the fragile ecosystem if not removed from the tank. Also, your fish tank will look much more attractive when it is not covered in dirt. Your fish tank supplies should therefore include an algae scrapper and also gravel cleaners, which will allow you to clean the tank and remove any dirt that sinks to the bottom of the tank.

Once you have confirmed that it is water tight you will need to thoroughly clean the tank and all equipment. Rinse thoroughly. Do not skip the cleaning and rinsing step just because you`ve purchased a new tank and it appears sparkling clean. Your fish will die if there are any contaminants left in the tank! Don`t forget to wash the gravel before adding it the tank. Add all your other equipment in accordance with the manufacturer`s directions. Your pet store will have provided advice on how to set up your saltwater fish tank.

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.

No list of fish tank supplies will ever be complete unless an assortment of corals, rocks, driftwood and maybe some battery powered toys are included. These accessories include battery powered wheels and divers. Ice shells, ice crystals and tiny fountains are also very popular fish tank supplies and will make your tank look more beautiful. When including any ornaments in your fish tank make sure that they are specifically labelled and intended for use in aquariums.
