ImportantInstructionsForTropicalFishBeginners

Whether you choose a 10-gallon fish tank, hexagon fish tank, or one of the nice corner fish tanks, follow these important instructions BEFORE you buy your tropical fish tank. There are many important instructions and factors to consider BEFORE buying your tropical or marine fish aquarium. These are : 1: Size. The absolute minimum size of your fish tank will depend on what species of fish will live in it. The bigger the fish, the larger the tank will need to be. As a general rule of 1 cm per litre of water for adult fish, you will need a 20-gallon fish tank to house 20 small/medium size fish. A large aquarium can hold more fish, and it holds more water which helps dilute harmful toxins and can be cycled easier and quicker for the first initial set-up. For this reason alone - It is best to buy a larger fish tank that you can afford. 2: Location. It's best to set up your home fish tank, where you will spend most of your time, ideally - in your living room. Most living rooms have a large surface area, that can accommodate most fish aquariums, whether it is placed up against a wall, in an alcove or corner wall. Plus it is a lot easier cleaning and maintaining your fish tank when there is room to do so. Make sure that there is plenty of space and ventilation around the aquarium, which stops mould, and heat builds up inside. Keep a cover on the aquarium which will help keep humidity levels down. Do not place your aquarium near to open fire, radiators, and doorways, or exits, as this will fluctuate the temperature, in and around the fish tank, no good for the fish, as they will be more stressed. Direct Sunlight is no good either, as this will aid algae growth, and increase temperature! 3: Glass Or Acrylic? This subject is a 50:50 question for you, there are pros and cons to each manufactured tank. Glass is tough to scratch whereas acrylic can scratch very quickly - not ideal for a smaller fish tank. However, acrylic is considered lighter than glass. An acrylic manufactured tank can weigh five times less than a glass fish tank of the same water volume. It is for this reason that many 500-gallon fish aquariums are made entirely of acrylic, to keep the weight down, and to save many household floors from damage. 4: Type Of Fish? One of the very first things you should do when you decide to keep tropical or marine fish is to determine what species, and size of fish you intend to keep. There are all different species of fish, big and small that will require different care, different water conditions, and different filter and heating equipment. Therefore it is vital to do initial research from a reputable online source, to determine which beginner fish is best for your needs. Some of the most popular tropical beginner fish are Corydoras, Rasboras, Guppies and Tetras. Beginner marine fish include Damselfish, Blennies, Cardinalfish and Hawkfish. 5: Which Fish Tank Shape?
