A dedicated cabinet also comes included with this kit.

What's included in this aquarium kit?

  • An 8mm-thick glass fish tank with bracing for added stability and support.
  • A sturdy cabinet with ergonomic door handles and a huge amount of storage space.
  • A built-in, high-volume filtration system packed with several layers of mechanical and biological media.

  • An energy-efficient, 54w LED strip light that slots into the lid and provides your fish tank with even light coverage.
  • A stick-on thermometer to help you keep a close eye on temperatures inside your fish tank.
  • A 15cm fish net for adding fish to your aquarium and performing all manner of maintenance tasks.
  • A 250ml bottle of dechlorinator and a 38g tub of fish flakes to get you started on your fishkeeping journey.

This Swell Congo 100cm Aquarium and dedicated cabinet is available in two colours: black and white. These black and white finishes are single-tone matte finishes that add a real contemporary feel to the aquarium.

Is this aquarium easy to set up and maintain?

Yes, this Swell Congo 100cm 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 Congo 100cm Aquarium is a large aquarium, so you have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing what kind of fish you'd like to keep. It's suitable for medium to large-sized tropical fish, like Discus, Anglefish, Clown Loaches, and African Cichlids, as well as some temperate/coldwater fish like Cherry Barbs and Goldfish.

This aquarium is named after the Congo River, the second-longest river in Africa after the Nile. This 4,700km-long river flows through many countries in Central Africa and is home to more than 1,000 different species of fish. Some of the most beautiful species of fish that live in the Congo, like Congo Tetras, Kribensis and Butterfly Fish, are widely available in the aquarium trade and all suitable for an aquarium of this shape and size.

If you're looking for some inspiration, why not build an aquarium with these fish that simulates their natural habitat? The Congo is a largely fine gravel-bottomed river that contains lots of rock, wood and easy-to-grow plants like Anubias. You can find all these natural products right here on our site!

What else should I buy with this aquarium?

This Swell Congo 100cm 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.
