Tank Hangon

The first decision you must make in creating your first aquarium is what size fish tank you want. I recommend at least a 10 gallon tank, although larger, will be easier for a beginner. Things in the bottom of the tank is called the substrate. It's probably want gravel or sand. This is mainly a matter of what you think is best. You'll need some type of filtration. For a small tank I recommend a wing on the back type power filter. You also need a heater. The general rule is 5 watts per gallon, but can be a bit more than necessary, if you're in a warmer climate.

The lighting that comes with your fish tank is enough unless you want to grow plants. Planted Aquariums are very nice, but can be difficult to maintain even for a beginner. We recommend starting with a single tank of fish and tanks pass planted later if you are interested in them.

Before filling tank you need to clarify its substrate, and dechlorinate your water. Once done, the configuration repository with the substrate, filter, heater, and the lights and let Like to work about 24 hours to test for leaks or equipment malfunctions. Once done you can start cycling your tank. This can be done with the fish, or you can make a dry cycle. A dry cycle is done by adding an artificial source of ammonia in the tank to start the nitrogen cycle. Once you see the cycle has finished, slowly, you can store the tank. A general guideline on how many fish can have is an inch of fish per gallon of water. Remember, Concerning the size of the fish fully developed, so the plan for the future.
