Setting up an aquarium may seem like this is a hard job to do, but you need to realize this is not as hard as what you thought at first.

Since this can easily be avoided, it will be easy to keep your spirits up about how your tank is coming along and not rush things because you have managed to follow the steps that were provided here on how to set up your tank properly.

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.

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.

The gravel lines the bottom of the tank and can be chosen in clear, white, or neon colors. This adds a lot to the visuals of an aquarium, especially if you choose colored gravel that matches or contrasts nicely with the fish you`ve chosen to keep. 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.

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.

Once you have the "must haves" in place, then you can start choosing the fun and pretty decorations that will enhance the beauty of the aquarium while showing portions of your own personality. It doesn`t matter what direction you lean in for decorations. You can choose to be elegant or quirky. It`s totally up to you in the end what sort of atmosphere you want to create for your fish, yourself and others who may want to view the aquarium.

Marine fish will have requirements far greater than freshwater fish. However, once you`ve decided to purchase a saltwater aquarium you`ll be rewarded with a stunning range of tropical and reef fish to choose from. But first you`ll need to purchase your tank. The selection process can be time consuming and confusing because the range of tanks available is large. The best advice is usually to purchase the largest tank you can afford and that will fit in the available space. There are numerous stories of people starting out their fish tank hobby with a small fish tank only to find in a short space of time that they wish they had purchased a larger 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.

Nonetheless, the other two fish tank filtration systems (which I will discuss later on) are good options in several cases as well. The excreted waste of our fish is expelled into the water, and will then become poisonous to the fish. To battle this toxic condition, a biological fish tank filtration system will transform the bacterium in this waste, and other particles. A biological fish tank filtration system will turn these kinds of toxicity into a relatively harmless chemical: nitrate.

These work out to be very entertaining for your fish as most of them love to dive into and explore these little "caves." You can even set up some tunnel like arrangements with these rocks to give the fish a chance to really explore their own caves. Again, you`ll find that the fish love to play Hide and Seek with their tank mates with the perfect environment to do so. You may not have thought of your fish as being spelunkers, but once you set up their cave kingdom for them with the rocks, you`re going to be in for one of the most amazing times you`ve experienced while watching your fish enjoy themselves.
