Aquarium Kits for Saltwater and Freshwater Fish

Aquariums are a beautiful way to add to the décor of any living space. From simple half-gallon fish bowls to large saltwater fish tanks, there are several options to suit your style, experience level, and maintenance needs. Often chosen for being relatively low maintenance and peacefully alluring, fish make excellent pets for owners of varying ages. Saltwater aquariums and reef style fish tanks generally require more care and maintenance than a freshwater bowl or fish tank. However, saltwater aquariums can be more rewarding as they can showcase more exotic species of fish, marine invertebrates, corals and plants. As there are many fish tanks available, it's up to you to determine which maintenance level is right for your home.

Most novice fish owners begin with a freshwater bowl or other types of beginner fish tanks. A desktop aquarium kit complete with a freshwater fish tank, filter, filter cartridge, lighted hood, water conditioner, and fish food is the perfect way to get started as an aquarist. While these kits contain the basic accessories most beginner fish tanks need, there is more fun to be had in choosing your own plants, rocks, colored substrates and decorative ornaments. There are saltwater aquariums that have been specifically designed for display on shelves, while some are equipped with reversible backgrounds to change with your mood or home décor. There are even octagon-shaped fish tanks that act as unique tables, hold up to 28-gallons of water, and never fail as an interesting conversation piece for entertaining guests.
