A simple step by step guide to setting up your first ten gallon tropical fish tank. If you enjoy it please digg it!
Historically, fish and plants for the first modern aquaria were gathered from the wild and transported (usually by ship) to Europea and America. During the early 20th century many species of small colourful were exported from Manaus, Brazil; Bangkok, Thailand; Jakarta, Indonesia; the Netherlands Antilles; Kolkata, India; and other tropical countries. Import of wild fish, plants, and invertebrates for aquaria continues today around the world. Many species have not been successfully bred in captivity. In many developing countries, locals survive by collecting specimens for the aquarium trade and continue to introduce new species to the market.

My Fish Diet: Tropical Fish Food - two small feeds a day (cucumber once a fortnight for catfish)
Cleaning Of The Tank: I minimise the amount of times I change of the water to twice a month. During the water change I clean the gravel with the gravel siphon and only change 30% of the water. I have all necessary drops that's required when changing fresh water.
Lights on/off: The Tank lights are only on between 9am - 9pm. Giving the fish time to relax and sleep.

Thank you x It's a good idea to have in mind what kind of freshwater aquarium fish you want to keep in your freshwater aquarium setup before you purchase an aquarium. Some fish only grow to be an inch or two, whereas other types of tropical fish can grow 12 or 13 inches or more in length! Knowing what kind of fish you want will help you decide the size of the tank they will need. If this is your first time with an aquarium, it may be a good idea to start with a 10 or 20 gallon aquarium setup for now and stock it with some smaller and hardier species.The first thing you will learn about tropical fishkeeping, is that every fish is different, and you can’t simply throw a bunch of them into a tank, and feed them a couple of times per day.
