Most people start off with a very small bowl thinking that it is the fastest way to own a pet. What they do not realize is that certain species of tropical fish grow to very large size with some reaching more than a foot. Pets just like humans do not like tight confined space area and soon you will realize it's a mistake and then having to head back again to the pet shop getting another new tank. My recommendation is to find out the largest growing size of a fish before buying the matching aquarium tank size. 100 gallon is always the best size. Remember this is an advice most novice aquarist will ignore.

Different species of tropical fish has its own secret, which you may not know or realize and it's only learned once you've experienced it yourself.

An aquarium containing your tropical fish will never be complete without live plant and aquarium decoration. Certain pets will need some kind of cave or rocks to hide in and this will ensure that they will not get startled easily. Certain tropical fish love plants and they will spend all day nibble on the leaves. Make sure also as a responsible aquarium owner, you also equip your tank with the basic tank equipment like filters, heaters and lighting. You will follow the rules combining every resource; you are bound to end up with the nicest best looking aquarium in town.
