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.

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.

Even a small aquarium fish tank is heavy - one gallon of water weighs about 10 lbs - so your new tank will require a sturdy stand. There are dedicated aquarium stands available that will provide a solid base, although a small fish tank might sit on another item of furniture. Use a layer of polystyrene tiles between the tank and the stand to even out any bumps. When setting up your aquarium try to avoid placing it in direct sunlight, which will cause algae to grow in the tank. Remember it will need to be situated near a power outlet as many items of tank equipment require a power source.

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.

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.
