Setting up an aquarium filled with interesting fish at home is not a difficult task as long as you do a little planning ahead, and get at least some basic instruction from someone you trust. A couple of months ago our photographer and I put together a simple instructional video on how to set up a basic freshwater aquarium which is very well suited for the beginning fish keeper. We have made the video available on our YouTube channel for easy viewing, and I have linked it here in this post. For a first timer, I know that learning about the necessary equipment for your new aquarium can be a little scary, and sometimes adding the thought of having to put it all together can bring about further anxiety.

The reward from watching your aquarium grow and thrive at home will far outweigh any initial nervousness.
