Basic Freshwater Aquarium Setup
Setting up your first aquarium may seem stressful and complicated but the fact is, its not! Begin by finding a tank, size is up to you and what your goals are. I recommend starting with at least a 20 gallon tank, anything smaller will end up making you wish you would have gone bigger especially when you find out how much you love keeping fish. Used tanks found on craigslist are a good start, although if money is not an issue go for a complete setup found at a local fish store or big chain retailer. This way you will have all the required items plus a few extras that will come in handy.
