Fish Tank Size: When it comes to tanks, bigger is always better in terms of creating a healthy habitat for your fish. You can start out on a smaller scale, with only a couple of fish, so you don’t have to make a big commitment right away. But if you’re serious about making this a hobby, consider starting with a tank size of 20 gallons.
Lighting and Temperature: Many fish are tropical, so a comfortable temperature around 80 degrees is ideal and can be regulated with an aquarium heater, which comes in different styles, such as hang-on or submersible. LED hoods that go on top of the tank are great for giving the tank a natural daylight feel.
Filters: There are many different types of aquarium filters to choose from, but for your first aquarium, the simplest ones to use are those that hang on the tank.
Aquarium Decor: Some aquarium items have aesthetic appeal, but also give the fish a habitat that suits them. For example, live or fake plants, rocks, treasure chests and other aquarium decor items can give fish the hiding places that they sometimes require.
Testing Equipment: Check the water quality regularly to ensure that your fish are in a safe environment. Kits can help you monitor pH levels. Fish Net: When you’re adding or removing fish for any reason, you’ll need fish nets to safely transport your fish.
The Foundation: Gravel, sand, rocks or pebbles should line the bottom of the tank, acting as a substrate.
