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.

Stores often have information listed on the tank that can help new owners decide on the type of fish they wish to buy. This information includes the full size of a fish, temperament and eating habits.

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.

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.

Don`t skip this important step just because the glass of the aquarium looks clean. Use a mild detergent in warm water to scrub out the tank. Rinse out the tank thoroughly to completely remove all traces of debris and detergent. Flush out the cleaned tank several times with fresh water to ensure there are no traces of detergent left behind. Also clean all equipment that will be used in your new aquarium fish tank and rinse thoroughly. Even a tiny amount of leftover detergent can kill your fish so do not skimp on the rinsing process. Gravel should be rinsed under running water until the water runs clear. Plants can be stored in a clean bucket of water while you set up your fish tank.

When you add them in effective ways, it makes the tank look larger than it actually is. Not only that, your fish will swim around and play with their reflections. If your tank is a smaller one, mirrors can be used to add more movement overall without putting too many fish into the tank. It`s actually pretty easy to install these mirrors effectively. You simply attach one to the back glass pane or put one mirror on each end of the tank. If you mount the mirrors on the inside of the tank, be sure that any rough edges that may be present are completely smoothed away. Otherwise, you`ll risk injuring the fish if they should accidentally hit one of those sharp edges. That`s something you definitely want to avoid happening. But once the mirrors are installed correctly, you`ll love watching how much fun your fish have playing with those "new" fish that seem to have been added to their home. They can amuse themselves, and you, for hours on end just from those mirrors.

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.

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.
