Is this aquarium easy to set up and maintain?
Yes, this Swell Amazon 80cm Aquarium is very easy to set up and maintain. Before you begin assembly, make sure that you've picked a flat and level area to place your aquarium - once you've added water its going to get very heavy and nigh on impossible to move!
After you've found a suitable spot, build your cabinet using the instructions provided and place your aquarium on top of it.
That done, you can then place your LED light into the hood and the heater into the built-in filter compartment in the back corner of your aquarium. Do not turn your filter and heater on until you have filled the aquarium with water, both pieces of equipment require a tank full of water to function properly. If you're planning to add sand, gravel, decorations and/or plants, it's best to do this prior to adding water.
Once your aquarium is up and running, it's time to let it cycle - be sure to check out our aquarium set-up help guide to learn more about this essential process. After that, it's all about staying on top of maintenance. This is made easy thanks to the aquarium's removable lid that gives you quick and easy access to its interior for all kinds of tasks, from water changes to algae scraping.
What kind of fish can I keep in this aquarium?
This Swell Amazon 80cm Aquarium is a large fish tank, so you have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing what kind of fish you'd like to keep. Many species of community fish, like Tetras, Guppies, Platies, Mollies, Rams, Danios and Gouramis, would really thrive in a fish tank of this size and shape.
This aquarium is named after the Amazon River, the largest river in the world by volume. This 6,400km-long river flows through many countries in South America and is home to more than 5,600 species of fish! Many of these species are popular in the aquarium trade, like Corydoras, Tetras, Angelfish and Rams.
If you're looking for some inspiration, why not build an aquarium with these fish that simulates their natural habitat? The Amazon is a largely sand-bottomed river that contains lots of wood, tall plants and leaf litter. You can find all these natural products right here on our site!
What else should I buy with this aquarium?
This Swell Amazon 80cm Aquarium is great as it comes with everything you'll need to get started. That said, if you want to make your underwater world look as beautiful as possible, then you'll want to pick up some substrate, hardscape, plants, and aquarium decor. You may also want to stock up on some extra fish food, dechlorinator and filter media for that time when your supplies from this complete aquarium kit eventually run out.
