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.

With a new biological fish tank filtration system in your old biological fish tank, the underwater environment will not (or, at least, with high quality equipment it should not) change at all. Instead, it will simply become a fish tank now maintained by a higher quality fish tank filtration system. It is a win-win-win situation when you purchase a higher quality fish tank filtration system. It is better for you, better for your fish, and even better for your home decor!

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.

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.

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.

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.

When the gravel is in and any artificial plants are in place, you will want to place a cereal bowl on the bottom of the tank. Now you may be puzzled why you should use this, but it is because the cereal bowl will be a great item for you to pour your water into. Once you have started to pour the water in the bowl it will start to overflow. Then you will notice your gravel is not being uprooted and will remain in place. If you pour the water straight in, it can work as well, but you will have to repave all of your gravel and this can be a difficult task to do.

They are necessary to prevent the fish form jumping out of the tank and also to reduce the evaporation of the water. The highest quality hood tends to be those that are made of aluminium. 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.

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

The ideas that can be implemented in using sea gravel is unlimited and you`ll have a great time choosing the gravel as well as setting up your tank with it. It`s never a disappointing effect.

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.
