One of the most important tasks for any aquarist is correctly setting up a new fish tank. Before introducing any fish to their new habitat, it must be fully stocked with everything they will need. This will include a filter, lights, hiding places, water of the right temperature and pH as well as enough room for them to swim comfortably. Even aquarium kits that are marketed as complete will often neglect to include adequate hiding space for your fish, so be sure that each item is present and set up before buying your first fish. Every species of fish has unique space and temperature requirements, and the requirements for your fish of choice must be researched before a tank is purchased. Well-planned fish tanks are not only beautiful, they promote healthy fish.
