Whether you’re new to the hobby or need a quick refresher, follow these simple steps to ensure a successful fishkeeping experience.

STEP 1

Considerations Before Getting Started

Keeping live animals is an important responsibility. There are several considerations to think about before purchasing an aquarium or livestock, and understanding the equipment and upkeep required.

STEP 2

Selecting An Aquarium

There’s more to tank selection than just aesthetics. Follow these helpful tips to ensure you pick the best aquatic habitat for your home and lifestyle.

STEP 3

Selecting Fish

With your aquarium selected, it’s time to consider what fish species are ideal to be kept inside it.

STEP 4

Setting Up Your Aquarium

Setting up an aquarium doesn’t have to be complicated. Fluval aquarium kits are particularly convenient to make installation time a breeze.

Cycling Your Aquarium

Cycling refers to the process of establishing a population of living beneficial bacteria within an aquarium, which is necessary before adding live fish.

STEP 6

Adding & Feeding Fish

Once your new tank has cycled, it’s time to add fish. Acclimating them from the store to your aquarium involves a few considerations, in addition to ensuring they are properly fed thereafter.
