How much are you prepared to commit to your aquarium and the animals that live there? Where should it be displayed?

Beginners mistake

Many beginners who want to start up with aquariums want to start with something easy, and maby have decided to get a goldfish or something in those lines. What many don’t know, is that a goldfish bowl of about 12 liters is harder to handle than an bigger tank of around 300 liters.
The reason for this is that in a small bowl it is much more difficult to create a good balance for the fish,  than in the larger aquarium because of the constant water changes that disturb the balance. This means that the fish are at greater risk of getting ill. For beginners, we recommend getting a tank of 60 liters or more to get a comfortable start of your new hobby.
