Aquarium kits are the perfect way for beginners to start out in the hobby or for experienced aquarists to upgrade to larger aquariums as the essential equipment you need to get started is included. Before choosing an aquarium, decide what type of fish and how many so that the enclosure suits their needs and they live a happy and healthy life! Also, decide where you want to place it, space and budget. Avoid sunny windows or drafty doorways. Desktop sizes are generally under 10 gallons and make the perfect accents for offices, bedrooms or even the kitchen counter! Larger aquariums are a focal point of any room. They are easier to care for, have more lighting options and accommodate a higher number of fish and often more breeds.
