Tropical Fish Tanks and equipment for your Tropical Fish Tank.
       
This page begins a discussion of tropical fish tanks and tropical fish tank equipment with information about aquariums, aquarium stands, aquarium covers, heaters, and thermometers.
 
 
Tropical Fish Tanks like this 30 tall Fish Tank.   The picture to the left shows my tropical fish tank with a hood on top that contains a light and a power filter with a BIO-Wheel. This tropical fish tank sits on a professionally made aquarium stand. This fish tank is called a 30-gallon tall-aquarium, and the combination of the aquarium, the hood, and the stand makes a beautiful piece of furniture in my home.

1. Aquariums
A tropical fish tank is actually easier to care for than a fish bowl.
Here are some recommendations about choosing an aquarium.

Aquariums are made of glass or acrylic plastic. Both materials are acceptable. Glass aquarium are usually rectangular or hexagonal with straight sides. Acrylic aquariums cost more than glass aquarium but are available in more shapes.

Plastic aquariums are less likely to crack or break but can scratch. The scratches can be removed with special rubbing compounds, that may be toxic to fish. So extra precautions must be taken not to expose the fish to these compounds or any other toxic compounds.

 
 
   
Pet Fish Talk, an MP3 PodCast, is a weekly internet talk show about keeping pet fish, such as tropical fish and goldfish, in aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds. The shows are hosted by the Bailey Brothers, Tom and Nevin, from 1 to 3 pm, Pacific Time, each Wednesday. Click on this image for more information.

Common Sizes for Aquariums
are from 5 gallons to 50 gallons. Aquariums smaller than 5 gallons end up costing about the same amount as 5-gallon aquariums, so 5 gallons is the smallest size aquarium recommended.

The 5-gallon and 12-gallon AquaTech Galaxy Aquariums are good for fish because they have built-in filters with BIO-Wheels.

Another good choice is a 10-gallon glass aquarium with an Eclipse Filtration and Illumination System sold in many stores, or you can get an AquaTech 20-40 filter and add a BIO-Wheel. Click here for more information about BIO-Wheel filters.

You must have a filter not just an air stone or bubble-wand.  An undergravel filter is not recommended. Click here to read more about aquarium filters.

 
 

2. Aquarium Stands
It is very important to realize that a fish tank full of water is heavy and should have a proper stand. Most aquariums come with a warranty against leaking and cracking. But the warranty may be void, if the aquarium is not placed on an aquarium stand that is specifically manufactured for that size aquarium.

Aquarium stands are available in both wood and steel. Be sure the stand accurately fits the aquarium.

3. Aquarium Hoods & Covers
Fish can jump out of an aquarium and land on the floor. Fish are more likely to jump, after they've been put in a new aquarium, especially if the new aquarium is smaller or the fish previously lived with a larger group of fish.

It's important to have an aquarium cover that completely covers the top of the aquarium. Aquarium covers have "knock-outs" that can be snapped out to make room for the aquarium filter and heater.

An aquarium cover will also minimize evaporation and keep dust out of your aquarium, but these are not important factors. A cover is mainly used to keep the fish in the aquarium.

The Eclipse and Galaxy aquarium hoods are very good covers that leave no place for the fish to jump out. You can cut pieces of plastic out of plastic milk containers, wash them to remove all the milk residue, then tape these pieces of plastic over the holes in your aquarium cover. Assume a fish will jump, unless you know it won't.

Here is a list of fish that I have seen often jumping out of aquariums: all Barbs, Plecostomus Catfish, Goldfish Comets, Swordtails, Cichlids, Eels, Sharks, Loaches, and Elephant Noses. Crabs will crawl out unless the aquarium is escape proof!

5 highly recommended products for aquariums with tropical fish
 
 About our Fish Photographs ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us in our aquariums of our fish. Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums. If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs. We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive. The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
