Freshwater Aquariums

Freshwater aquariums can be anything from a small fish bowl to an elaborate live planted tank. There is a great variety of fish to choose from at almost every pet store. Some people prefer calm soothing beta tanks while others love the rush of watching there favorite Oscar devour 5 feeder fish in less then 5 seconds.

My personal favorites are the Planted Aquariums. They can mimic beautiful river bottoms with live plants, schooling fish, snails, shrimp and many other fantastic creatures.

Cichlid aquariums have stunning aggressive fish with vibrant colors that can put some saltwater fish to shame. Watching a cichlid tank eat can be an amazing spectacle not meant for the squeamish.

Getting started with a fresh water tank can be very easy with the prepackaged aquarium setups from major pet stores or online. Most will come with everything you need to get started except for the decor.
