What Are the Perks of Owning a Fish Tank?

If you're a customer still on the fence about whether or not to buy an aquarium, here are some of the benefits that might sway you: Learn More

Aesthetic Appeal

Well-designed aquariums can be a real focal point in any room. You can place them by a window to add a touch of luxury and life to your home or office and make it feel more inviting. With the right accessories, you can really make your fish tank stand out and become a real conversation starter.

Promote Relaxation

Many people find the gentle bubbling and soothing colour scheme of aquariums to be very relaxing, making it the perfect addition to any space where you want to encourage calmness and serenity.

Fish Make Great Pets

Most fish can make relatively low-maintenance pets. You don't need to take them out for walks or train them, and they don't need much space. As long as you provide them with good quality food and a clean, well-maintained tank, they will live a long, healthy life.

Improve Creativity

Fishkeeping is an excellent hobby that hones your problem-solving skills and allows you to be creative in finding solutions. As you become more experienced, you'll be able to take on more challenging setups that require a heater and filter placement.

How Do I Find the Right Fish Tank for My Aquatic Pets?

Are you a new fish owner? If you're not sure which aquarium is right for you, our experts at Family Pet Centre would be more than happy to help. We can give you all the advice and information you need to make the best decision for your pets.

Consider these factors when choosing an aquarium:

Size

How many fish do you want to keep? What kind of fish are they? How big will they grow? These are all important questions to ask when choosing an aquarium, as different species have different space requirements. A good rule of thumb is to allow approximately ten to 20 litres of water per fish.

If you're caring for a very sensitive species, the depth of your aquarium may also be a concern. Some fish need to be able to rest at the bottom of the tank, so a shallower model may not be suitable.

Material

Here's a breakdown of the most common aquarium materials and their pros and cons:

  • Glass. Glass is clear, durable, and very easy to maintain. However, it is also heavy and can be challenging to move.
  • Acrylic. Acrylic is a lightweight alternative to glass that is just as durable and clear. It is also easier to shape into a custom model. However, it can scratch more easily.
  • Plastic. Plastic aquariums are often the most economical option and can come in different shapes and sizes. However, it is not as durable as glass or acrylic and may become discoloured over time.

Lighting

Most aquariums come with some form of brand lighting, but you need to ensure that it is adequate for the type of fish you want to keep. Different species have different lighting requirements, so be sure to do your research before making a purchase.

Lighting is also critical for the plants in your aquariums, and it also serves to make your fish tank look more attractive.

Filtration

Filtration is one of the most crucial aspects of fishkeeping, as it ensures that your fish have a clean and healthy environment to live in. Internal filters are a good option for smaller aquariums and are easy to hide from view. An external filter, on the other hand, is better if you want a larger tank.

Accessories and Decorations

Some of our aquariums at Family Pet Centre come with plant materials, substrates, and other accessories to get you started, but there are many more options available to make your fish tank your own. Be sure to ask our experts about the best ways to decorate and accessorise your aquarium.

What Are the Different Aquarium Setups?

We can categorize aquariums depending on the different types of fish that can inhabit it. Some of the most popular setups include:

Freshwater Fish Tanks

Freshwater aquariums are the most common type of tank and are typically home to smaller, less aggressive fish. Once you add a filter and lighting system, you can further decorate these aquariums with various plants, rocks, and other decorations to create a beautiful and inviting space.

Saltwater Fish Tanks

Saltwater aquariums are more complex than freshwater tanks, as they require a specialized filter and other components to mimic the natural environment of saltwater fish. These tanks are typically home to more exotic and colourful fish, making them a real showpiece in any home or office.

Marine Fish Tanks

Marine aquariums are similar to saltwater tanks but are even more difficult to maintain due to the delicate balance of the ecology. These tanks should only be attempted by experienced fish keepers who are interested in marine species.

Tropical Fish Tanks

Tropical fish aquariums can be either fresh or saltwater and are typically home to a wide variety of brightly coloured fish. These tanks require a warm water temperature, so be sure to use a heater to maintain the proper environment for your fish.

Cold Water Fish Tanks

Cold water fish tanks are typically home to fish that originate in cooler climates, such as goldfish and koi. These aquariums don't require a heater, but you might need a cooling system to maintain optimal temperatures.
