20 Gallon Fish Tank

In the 20 gallon fish tank you can have as many big fish as you like. Most people mix small fish with big fish in the 20 gallon fish tank; however, this is not advisable because the big fish tend to eat up the food of the little ones and also they bully them around. It is rather advisable to get more or less the same size of fish that can grow together. In case you have a new addition you should take care that you gradually introduce the fish to the tank. You can lower it in a smaller and transparent container so the fish becomes acquainted to other fish without being traumatized by them.

For all this, a 20 gallon fish tank is the right size, and because of the suitability it is also the best possible choice for the beginner.

Why it is for a Beginner?

Why a 20 Gallon Fish Tank is Best for a Beginner?

If you are a beginner, it is best to choose a tank which is small enough to be installed easily and big enough to develop its own aqua-system in the shortest time possible. This would imply that the minimum you should go for is a 20 gallon fish tank because this is beautiful enough to motivate you and at the same time you do not need to clean it often since it can take care of itself with the right support.

When you are a beginner, the most important thing is that you ensure that your fish do not die. Nothing can be more heart breaking than to see your pets dying for apparently no reason and despite your best efforts. Many people stop keeping an aquarium after they have such incidents because they cannot bear it.

The Beginner’s Aquarium Should be at Least a 20 Gallon Fish Tank

The common belief is that when a beginner wants to set up his first aquarium, they should start with a very small one – like the bubble aquarium; however, nothing can be further from truth. Actually the smaller the tank, the more difficult is to maintain the balance of the aqua-system. Hence, for a person who does not know much about the maintenance of the aquarium, a small tank would be a total enigma.

Yellow Stripe Maroon Clownfish and Sea Anemone

Another great possible addition to your 150 gallon fish tank is the Yellow Stripe Maroon Clownfish. This fish looks remarkably like the normal Maroon Clownfish, but will develop yellow stripes on the forehead, midsection, and tail, instead of the often seen white. They are stunningly beautiful and fairly easy to take care of considering how specialized their existence is.

Another great addition to your 150 gallon fish tank if you decide to go the salt water route is that of an anemone. Sea Anemone, or Entacmaea quadricolor, is a welcomed addition to both the tank and the clownfish, as they exist in a symbiotic relationship in nature. Both the clownfish and the Anemone have a hearty nature, but they still require some careful watching, making them a great combination for the beginning aquarium enthusiast.

No matter which animals or plants you choose to put in your fish tank, it will probably give you years of enjoyment. With the proper maintenance and care, it is a hobby that just about anyone can enjoy.
