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. There is nothing to fear! A you will see from our video, setup is a simple process, give it a try. The reward from watching your aquarium grow and thrive at home will far outweigh any initial nervousness.
