Is this Swell 40cm Tropical LED Aquarium Kit 19L easy to set up and maintain?
Yes, this Swell 40cm Tropical LED Aquarium Kit 19L is very easy to set up and maintain. Before you set it up, make sure that you have a flat and level place to put it - a fish tank with 19 litres of water in it is quite heavy and needs to be supported by some strong and reliable furniture. It's also important that you place your fish tank inside the floating base provided; this is a rectangular, plastic trim that supports your aquarium and prevents leaks.
Once you've found a suitable spot, you can begin assembling your aquarium. Install your LED light into the hood, the filter and heater on the inside of the aquarium, and the thermometer strip on the outside of the aquarium. Do NOT turn your filter and heater on until you have filled the aquarium with water. If you're adding gravel, sand, decorations or plants, it's easier to do this prior to adding water. With your aquarium up and running it's time to let it cycle - check out our aquarium help guides to learn more about this essential process.
After that, it's all about staying on top of maintenance, which is simple thanks to the aquarium's easily removable lid. Take this off and you'll have easy access to the aquarium for all kinds of tasks, from water changes to algae scraping.
What else should I buy with this Swell 40cm Tropical LED Aquarium Kit 19L?
This Swell 40cm Tropical LED Aquarium Kit 19L comes with everything you'll need to get your first fish tank up and running, but you may want to add some extras like substrate, plants and aquarium decor to make it look like a real underwater world. It might also be worth stocking up on some fish food and dechlorinator for that time when your supplies from this kit inevitably run out.
