This Swell Zambezi 120cm 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 Zambezi 120cm 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 fish tank 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 Zambezi 120cm 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. Anything from small community fish like Tetras, Platies and Guppies to large-sized tropical fish like Discus, Plecos and Peacock Cichlids are suitable for this shape and size of aquarium. It's suitable for several temperate/coldwater fish too, like Goldfish, Cherry Barbs, and Weather Loaches.

If you're planning on keeping really big fish in this aquarium, then you may want to increase your aquarium's filtration capacity by adding an external filter, like a Fluval FX or an AquaEl HyperMax 4500. These are two of the best external filters on the market and both can easily be stored away in this aquarium's spacious cabinet.

What else should I buy with this aquarium?

This Swell Zambezi 120cm 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.
