There are a few things you’ll want to think about before you purchase an aquarium, like what Types of fish do you want to keep and how big of a tank you’d like to have. Other considerations are what size AQUA-Tech power filter will best meet your tank’s requirements to be successful and where you’ll put the aquarium in your home or office.

If you know what size aquarium you want, but don’t know which filter to use, consider purchasing an AQUA-Tech® or AquaCulture Home Aquarium Starter Kit. All the essentials you’ll need to get started, tank, filtration and lighting, are inside one box, making it easier and more affordable than ever to become a fish owner.

Owning an aquarium can be fun and rewarding if you take a few moments to prepare before diving in.
