Help and advice on shopping for: Fish Tanks
Create an aquarium your fish will love
Fish tanks come in all shapes and sizes, offering comfort for your fish and a stylish centrepiece for your home. In our fish tank range, there is something to suit every type of aquarist and a fish, including coldwater, tropical and marine species. In our full range of fish tanks, you’ll find leading fish tank manufacturers, including Biorb aquariums from Oase, Evolution Aqua and Fluval.
What are fish tanks?
Fish tanks have come a long way from a brittle glass bowl on a bookshelf. Modern fish tanks are larger, offering more comfort to resident fish, and much more durable, ensuring that leaks and breakages are rare. All fish tanks must also be placed on a specially designed unit that doubles as storage for hardware, food and other supplies. Unlike a standard bookcase, these units are reinforced to take the weight of the large water volume on top of them.
Why should I buy a fish tank?
Fish tanks and aquariums have been proven to relieve stress and even lower blood pressure in those that own them. They form the centrepiece of any room, especially when decorated with fish tank ornaments, plants and backgrounds. Fish tanks are also a fantastic choice for parents, as they easily capture the imagination of children and present a wide range of education opportunities.
What are the main types of fish tanks?
We sell six types of fish tanks; bowl fish tanks, cold water fish tanks, corner fish tanks, fish tank stands, marine fish tanks and tropical fish tanks. Bowl fish tanks are designed to hold very small species of tropical or cold water fish. Cold water fish tanks are designed to hold fish that are comfortable with fresh water outside of the tropics. Corner fish tanks are built to fit into the corner of your room using the space effectively. Fish tank stands are specially reinforced stands that have been purpose-built to support aquariums. Marine fish tanks are designed to hold saltwater fish and are typically the largest tanks. Tropical tanks are heated tanks that provide a habitat suitable for tropical fish.
What should I look for in an aquarium?
As a fish owner, choosing an aquarium is really about finding something suitable for all the inhabitants, decorations and hardware you intend to buy. We recommend researching exactly how much space each fish you’re planning to own will need and catering the size and design of your tank to that. Once you’ve found a winner, you can move on to stocking up on all the hardware and accessories you’ll need including filters, lights, heaters, decoration and substrates.
