You have endless possibilities when setting up an aquarium of your own in your home. A fresh or saltwater aquarium can be a great addition to any room of the house, and you can create any environment you like using an array of aquarium supplies for your fish to live in. It is important to keep in mind that there are things to consider when first setting up an aquarium, such as the type of fish you would like to have in it. This will determine whether you want a freshwater aquarium or a saltwater aquarium, or maybe even a warm water aquarium. Tropical fish will require a heater to supply warm water, but geneally it is best to start with a cool water aquarium until you gain experience wit fish tanks. Besides, tropical fish are expensive, and chances are, they will die if you don't yet have the experience.

If it is your first time setting up an aquarium, you probably want to start with something small like a ten gallon tank, and in time, upgrade to a bigger tank, maybe even a saltwater tank depending on the fish you have chosen. Once you move up to a larger tank, you can create any environment you choose with a variety of aquarium supplies. You should also know that in order to maintain your aquarium, supplies are a necessity. For starters, your tank will need a hood to prevent the fish from jumping out, a filter to keep the water clean, water testing kit for PH water levels, a pump, lighting and others depending on type of aquarium.

Having an aquarium in your home is a lot of fun and promotes a relaxing atmosphere. It requires a little time getting accustomed to it, but once you do, you will reap the rewards. Before you set up any fish tank, clean it thoroughly, condition the water, and clean all aquarium supplies, including gravel and rocks before you add them in the tank. Cleanliness is critical to aquarium maintenance, and will help your fish stay healthy. After all, they are pets, and you want to make sure they are taken care of. One thing to remember, it is wise to start with freshwater, and once you've mastered that, you can always convert it to a saltwater aquarium if you choose.

Aquarium Driftwood

. Saturday, January 10, 2009

Aquariums are not complete with just water and few fish swimming around in them. Adding aquarium driftwood can help make a beautiful aquascapes. Driftwood can be anything like small arches, caves, or hollows. Driftwood like branches, stumpy, and planted driftwood are readily available on the aquarium market.

The choice of driftwood would primarily depend on the size of aquarium and the type of aquarium like freshwater or saltwater aquarium and the types of fish present in the aquarium.

When looking for driftwood, it is necessary to make sure that driftwood sinks naturally inside the aquariums, because if it doesn't sink, then they should be attached to a holder to keep them fixed at the bottom of the aquarium.

It is also necessary to make sure that the driftwood is free of snails and algae, so that it does not contaminate the aquarium's ecosystem. To ensure this, many aquarium shops thoroughly clean driftwood to make them safe for your aquarium.

Ensure that any driftwood you purchase do not have tannins in it, so it will not contaminate or discolor the water. Artificial driftwood is widely available at affordable prices. Apart from adding beauty to your aquarium, driftwood helps to mimic the natural environment of fish and help them enjoy being in the aquarium.

There are special kinds of driftwood suited to each kind of fish. For instance, Caribbean driftwood is a favorite of Dart frogs and Terrarium. Planted driftwood, with java fern and java moss growing on top of it, are also available.

A small driftwood centerpiece suitable for aquariums with a capacity of 10 to 30 gallons could cost you around $12.50. The price ranges can go upto $50 for super large driftwood for 100 to 150 gallon capacity aquariums. No matter what the size of your aquarium is or how many fish it holds, adding accessories to it like driftwood pleases the fish in the aquarium and is quite pleasing to the eye.

Aquarium Lighting - 5 Great Tips To Light Up Your Aquarium

.

1. Fish need lights to survive
Regardless of whether you have a fresh water set up or a marine set up your fish will need light in the aquarium to survive. However, sometimes different fish require different kind of lighting and it is better that you ask for advice from the fish accessory shop as to what lighting you should have for your fish.

2. The various kinds of lighting
You could use florescent lighting for fish that are brightly colored as this will make the fish stand out more in the aquarium and give the aquarium a nice effect. You can get these lights in various sizes to suit your aquarium. You will have to buy the light fittings separately as they do not come along with the fish tanks or the hoods for the tanks. This is an expensive part of equipment as you will have to buy the fittings for the lights also.

3. Lighting for marine tanks
Marine tanks need more light and these are more expensive as a lot of pure light is needed here to light up the reefs. Anemones and corals require a lot of light and also sensitivity to live in under these conditions and so light plays an important role in this sort of a marine aquarium. If you are planning on a coral reef make sure that you have adequate light and the correct kind.

4. Where to find aquarium lighting
Aquarium lightings maybe easy to install, but cost quite a bit. You can buy these at any pet shop or fish shop that sells accessories for fish tanks and aquariums too. You could also search for second hand lighting for marine aquariums but always ensure that they are in working condition first or else you will be wasting your money on it.

5. Get good lighting to define your aquarium
To get a good look about your aquarium you should put good lighting and not some cheap kind which will make it look shabby. If your lighting is good then your fish tank will look good and will be worth being put up. You could try out various colors and not just adhere to white for your lighting effects. Try out various colors and see which one you find most suitable for your aquarium and for the type of fish collection that you have in it.

Purchasing Aquarium Hoods - Tips To Make A Great Buy

.

An aquarium hood may seem like an unneeded product, but the first time one of your fish jump out of the tank, you will be wishing you had one. There are some fish that just like to jump when they get excited, especially when they see the food floating at the top of the tank. The hood is the best way to keep the fish in the tank. There are other reasons for a fish hood, such as lighting. Many hoods come with lighting that is needed for the tank.

If you need an aquarium hood for your tank there are several places to look. The first is obviously a pet store. A local mom and pop shop might not have many varieties or not enough sizes. You can try the bigger chain stores for the most choices. Specialty fish stores are probably the best place you can buy a hood. The store will probably have many different choices as well as very knowledgeable sales people. You could also look on the Internet at the different aquarium hoods available.

There are different variations of aquarium hoods. Some come with no lights at all and fish owners have to purchase the light and fixtures separately. This is a pretty expensive endeavor, but more companies are going this route because it makes them more money. When looking at hoods, you also need to decide between a plastic hood and wood one. The wood hoods are usually more expensive because there was extra time and effort put into making the hood. If you have extra money around, you may want to think about getting your hood customized. These are the most expensive types of hoods, but you can have anything you want on it, including lights.

Hoods by themselves aren't expensive. It's the attachments that cost the most money. If you don't own a fish tank yet and are considering buying one, look at everything you are going to have to lay out first to get your first aquarium started. Do a little research to learn where you can get the best products for the cheapest price or the product that is the most cost efficient. One thing to look into is a jewel aquarium. It comes with the hood with light attachments already included in the price.

Aquarium Stands - Choosing the Right Stand For Your Aquarium

.

By Jake Wilson

When you are purchasing your aquarium, you are naturally going to be caught up in the selection of filters, fish, plants, hoods, lighting and all. A common mistake people make is overlooking where they are going to actually place their aquarium. Have you guessed what I am talking about yet? That's right folks, I am talking about aquarium stands.

Aquarium stands are just as important as any other part of your aquarium setup. There are many different sites on the web that offer aquarium stands. In this article I will offer a couple points to consider when looking for your aquarium stand.

There are two main types of aquarium stands open and closed. Open stands are usually pre-made for smaller sized aquariums (up to 40 gallons) and normally made out of metal. Closed stands are crafted most of the time using pressure-treated wood, and cover both the top and bottom of the tank. You must make the closed stand out of pressure treated wood, as normal wood will rot with all of the moisture it is exposed to.

Closed stands are normally pre-made in rectangular shapes to fit most aquariums. The bottom portion of the aquarium stand normally extends at least a few inches past the size of the aquarium to maximize stability.

The interior part of these aquarium stands normally features a support bar for the middle of the aquarium to further stabilize it and prevent too much movement. Closed aquarium stands are normally made for larger sized aquariums, and most of the time they have cabinets and drawers built in to hide the other equipment required to run the aquarium.

Open and closed aquarium stands are good if you are trying to have a pretty standard shape aquarium. For those of you out there who are out there requesting custom jobs, try to get your aquarium builder to build a stand for you as well. Most custom aquarium designers on the web will also offer custom aquarium stands.

Make sure to mull over a few different design options for your aquarium stand, aquarium stands can be pretty pricey. However, I am sure that any company you are purchasing your custom aquarium from can have special discounts when you purchase the two together.

Many people choose to use a metal aquarium stand for their setup. Metal is a very strong material and can support much more weight per pound as opposed to wood. With metal, you do have to make sure you pick the right material as some metal aquarium stands can rust when continuously exposed to moisture. To avoid this problem make sure you use rust resistant metals for building your aquarium stand.

I hope you found this article on the different types of aquarium stands helpful. I personally recommend anyone looking for an aquarium stand for a tank over 40 gallons, to call one of the custom aquarium stand makers.

Getahugetank.com offers large fish tanks, aquarium stands, and aquarium supplies.
