Each species differs from the other and therefore requires special and different attention from the other species, some of which prefer to live in groups and some of them Living alone, as some of the species adapt to live with other species that do not belong to their species and some do not. Likewise, you must know the types of fish that live in fresh and salt water and the appropriate temperature for them and when the season comes when each species mates and how they are taken care of and their young, so read first On the types of species, their shapes, and what they need, will you be able to provide the appropriate environment for them, or not so that you do not bring them to the home and die after several days.

It is preferable to equip the aquarium with glass because its degree of transparency is high and solid and can withstand the pressure of water, the deposits do not relate to it and can be cleaned easily, it does not interact with the water and changes its chemical composition
Keep in mind that the higher the number of fish in the tank, this means that you must constantly clean the tank in order not to poison the fish as a result of contamination of water with their droppings. So provide water purification and purification devices, oxygen supply, etc.

The basin is smooth and has no protrusion so that the pelvis is not broken, and there must be a piece of rubber or plastic under the base so that the base of the pelvis is not exposed to a crack
Run the tank at least two weeks before purchasing the fish; In order to help form beneficial bacteria that usually live in water, these bacteria get rid of excess ammonia and help the fish to live in a healthy way, because ammonia can cause serious problems for fish that ends in death, so do not rush, the higher the operating time before buying fish, the better. .
