If stress is affecting your life, consider getting a fish tank. These self-contained water worlds have been shown to have a calming influence. If you have never had a fish tank before, setting one up may be confusing. To help you establish a freshwater tank, we have assembled some articles to guide you through the initial setup.

Before beginning, learn how to set up your freshwater aquarium. This article will help you prepare and learn what it takes to have a thriving home for your beautiful fish.

Fish tanks can be difficult to maintain. Having the proper equipment will go a long way towards keeping your tank healthy. All aquariums need proper filtration and aeration. Even proper heat sources and lights are crucial to your tank.

Improper water quality is the number one cause of illness and death in fish. Once your tank is prepared, you will need to test the water to make sure you know what is in the water. This is one of the most important parts of having an aquarium.

Now it's time to accessorize! Gravel, plants as well as aquarium accessories will create a more lifelike world for your fish.

After your tank has the proper equipment and accessories, you can start to think about adding fish. Choosing fish for your freshwater aquarium takes a little planning. Some species do not live well with others. Learn this before trouble begins.

Your tank is all set up and now needs to be maintained. Learn how to feed your fish and learn how to tell if your fish is sick.

By educating yourself before establishing a tank, you should easily have a successful home for colorful and soothing fish.
