Cheap Fish Tanks

Fish make for fantastic pets. They're low hassle, inexpensive to maintain, and beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, if you want to start an aquarium, there's a bit of a learning curve that must be overcome. Indeed, a quick glance at the cheap fish tanks available online can be an overwhelming experience.

There are hundreds of different breeds of fish like Anabantoids and Algae Eaters and Green Terrors, a huge variability in the sizes of fish tanks, and a massive number of accessories to choose from.

The first choice is whether to go with fresh water or saltwater fish. Beginners should always choose freshwater, because they're more adaptable to variation in their environment. Keeping saltwater fish can be wonderful, but it's better to wait until you have more experience.

The second choice is whether to choose a large or small tank, and you would probably think that a smaller tank would be simpler to deal with, but in actuality, bigger tanks are easier to maintain. If you have a small tank, there is less water to dilute pollutants, and disasters can happen suddenly because balance in your water can shift without much warning time.

Your initial purchase will include some, or all, of the following:
• Aquarium, and possibly a stand of some kind
• Filter Pump
• Thermometer
• Heater Pump
• Bacteria Supplement
• Water Conditioner
• Props, decorations, rocks for the bottom and etc…

Notice that fish are not mentioned. You'll need to get your tank setup first before purchasing fish, and that can take about a week.

It's unwise to use untreated tap water in your fish tank, so you'll want to make use of water conditioners and carefully treat your water before adding it to your tank, so that untreated water never enters your fish's ecosystem, indeed ammonia poisoning can be deadly.

Decorate your tank, search engines can be utilized to research aquarium decorations online, so you can get your tank looking exactly the way you want it. Some will buy silver tanks, others black or red, the choice is yours. Put your filters, and lighting and everything else in there. Fill your fish tanks with pre-treated water, turn on your heater, and start your pump.

Let it run for about a week, and make sure that your temperature is within an acceptable range before buying your fish. Guppies make a good choice for a beginner, and you shouldn't buy more than 2 fish initially. Once your tank has been running for a few weeks without incident, you can add more fish to the environment, but always remember to conduct adequate research and consult a fish tanks specialist if in doubt.

Follow these guidelines, and you should be able to get started in the fish keeping hobby without any disasters or incidents. Best wishes and have fun with your new pets.
