Determining the ideal size and shape
Selection of aquarium shape and size can be based on your set-up location, cost, and time you would like to invest in this feature. To decide on a specific aquarium, gather information through professional literature or consult a specialized dealer of your desires and ideas. Consider fish type and quantity, plants, decor, and equipment connections. When all the important factors are optimally matched you will be able to begin your new aquarium.
Next, it is important to consider the weight of the aquarium to determine the best aquarium cabinet options. Some cabinets come as a set with an aquarium; however, if this will be a separate purchase, consider a cabinet what can withstand the weight of your full aquarium and is proportional to the aquarium you have chosen.
