Before buying an aquarium

Read this to see what you should consider when selecting your perfect aquarium:

The location

As tempting as it is to position the aquarium where you want, its location should be carefully selected: The best thing is always a position with no direct sunlight. If you want to place the aquarium on a shelf, sideboard or table, the piece of furniture must be strong enough to support the filled aquarium. It is both easier and safer if you buy an aquarium kit that includes a matching base cabinet.
Aquarium inhabitants also have their requirements. You should not place your tank near music systems, speakers or stoves, so that they do not become stressed.

Selecting aquarium inhabitants and plants

Consider in advance which aquarium inhabitants and plants you want in your aquarium. The aquarium size must be suitable for their size and number. In addition, each animal species has its own preferences: some fish like temperatures of 22°C, for example, but some like temperatures up to 30°C. A heater will ensure that the aquarium inhabitants feel comfortable in your aquarium.

The time required and the size of the aquarium

Regular care is important to ensure that you enjoy your individual underwater world for a long time. Depending on the number of inhabitants and the size of the aquarium, caring for it will take up more or less of your time. However, a small aquarium does not necessarily mean less work. The water values, aquarium inhabitants and plants must be observed more closely in smaller tanks in particular. Larger aquariums generally have more stable water values and provide a larger buffer.
