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.

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!

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.

Some fish feed on this kind of algae - but usually not enough, they do not consume all of it, and some consume none. Nevertheless, you will (from time to time) have to scrub your fish tank clean of the buildup of algae. If you cycle your fish tank using a biological fish tank filtration system, you can certainly create a biological environment. When you have already designed a specific biological habitat, and if you purchase a new biological filtration system, your fishes etc. will not have to adjust.

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.

Realistically those who own a tropical tank would never want to have that many fish. Fish that are large will shift more water and have more waste than a fish with a smaller body. In addition to this, a healthy tank will have gravel, equipment, plants and decoration. This will also reduce the amount of fish that is safe to add into a new tank.
