Does my water need to be just below the filter where the water comes out? So it drops down and makes a waterfall type effect so it makes bubbles and also helps aerate the water? Or can it be filled clear up to where the water is coming out and flowing equally which means it's not making any bubbles anymore it just pushing water around. without bubbles is it aerating anymore? I didn't like it dropping and splashing and making a mess all over my clear glass lid

+Madison Slaughter the one inch per gallon only applies to small fish that stay small. Just be aside and Oscar gets 15 dosnt mean you can keep it in a 15 gallon aquarium. Do ur research before starting an aquarium
Madison Slaughter
Madison Slaughter - 7 years ago
A rule I learned is "one-inch per gallon," so if the fish you plan to get is two inches when it's full grown, then it will take up two gallons of the tank. Though, the decor you put in the tank may take up a gallon or so, so keep that in mind.
I agree with Adolfo though, you should do plenty of research on the fish you want, before buying it to see if it would live comfortably in your tank. :)

Well..he did forget to tell us to rinse things out a bit first, especially the filter cartridge, ya know, to get the carbon dust out. Would be good to mention about preparing a little better for the arrival of the fish, like adding beneficial bacteria for better success. His presentation is a bit too basic for me. Get as much good information to have the tank as ready as can be for the arrival of your little fishies, newbie friends (I am a newbie too)! This is such an interesting hobby.

What I noticed in most fish tanks in the United States are plastic plants, mostly in pink and blue. Why do most Americans use them? Are live plants hard to get?
Live plants take an important part in the biological system in a fish tank, they provide oxygen for the fish and can reduce algae and so on.

Luckily my house is insulated enough that my tank is at a constant 77 degrees, even in winter. The fluorescent light also contributes some heat. So a heater wasn't necessary for my tropical tank.
I currently have 1 Gold Dust molly, 1 Black molly, 1 black fry, and 3 Serape Tetras.
I wanted another fry but the Tetras gobbled them up so quickly, which is precisely what I wanted them to do anyways.

Snacks All Day
Snacks All Day - 8 years ago
+Rebecca Johnson Not always true. Depending on where you are buying from, you can usually just put the decoration in the tank and fill it up. Adding dechlorinator helps clear out any toxins in the water. Just let the water begin its nitrogen cycle. After 3-7 days add a starter fish or two and you can achieve an established aquarium. The only reasons I can think you need to rinse everything in water first is if it the decoration had been soaking in bleach or other harmful chemicals. Also, if you want to avoid cloudier water with a gravel substrate. Rinsing isn't absolutely necessary.

izzy rose
izzy rose - 9 years ago
He failed to mention that you should rise gravel and decor in HOT water before putting it into to your tank. To remove anything harmful that might be on it.
izzy rose
izzy rose - 8 years ago
That is correct. I was say that only if you put fish in the tank right away, by using quick start (a lot if people use this to set up there tanks so they don't have to wait and since they didn't cycle the tank first some harmful things could still be on the tank, filter, or decor). If is a fresh water tank that you are setting up, you do a water change every one to two weeks. The time required to filter out the tank so that it is ready for fish is 48 hours to a week and most people who are starting out wouldn't think to do a water change. Also I myself would take extra precautions and wash the ever thing to reduce the possibility of anything harmful being transferred to the fish or other things that may be in the aquarium. Everyone has there own opinion on how to set up a fish tank I was just sharing mine.
Snacks All Day
Snacks All Day - 8 years ago
+izzy rose You don't have to rinse all gravel. It depends on where you buy it from, what you're putting in the tank, how big of a tank, and how much gravel. You can put gravel straight into the aquarium fill it up and let the water cycle through a filter. You'll probably be doing a water change before adding fish to help the bacterial cycle establish properly so usually when you do that you'll pull out anything harmful in the water.
