Beginner Advice

Setting up an tank can be as easy as setting up small fish bowl or as complicated as setting up a saltwater reef tank but all tanks have some simple basic things in common.

Tank: make sure you have the a home that is large enough and in the right location.

a) How large does the tank need to be for the type and number of fish that you want to have? If you only have a small desk and want a fish bowl then you’ll only be able to put one guppy in it or a few shrimp. If you want to have a few small goldfish,  it would be wise to get at least a 20 gallon aquarium because they will grow larger in the future.
