If you or someone in your family is thinking of keeping fish as pets, take some time to plan before you buy. The type of aquarium you buy will be of great importance to your fish. It’s also important to choose an aquarium that’s right for your home.
A 15-gallon aquarium is a good size to start with. Smaller aquariums can be more difficult to care for. Not only will there be less size for your fish in a smaller tank, but toxins can build in the water more rapidly in a smaller aquarium.
There are things to take into account when looking for an aquarium. How many fish will you have? How big will the fish get? Will you get a glass or acrylic tank? These are important questions to answer before you buy.
