A small tank also does not leave much room for adding decorations or extra fish. Always buy the largest tank that your budget and space limitations allow, because increased surface area means better overall biological stability. A large surface area provides good oxygen absorption and carbon dioxide exchange. Small tanks can be a real problem if you have a power or equipment failure. Due to the small amount of water the tank holds, the temperature can drop very quickly. An extended period of lost filtration (usually after several hours depending on your aquarium size) can also foul the water to lethal proportions.

That’s right, a 100-gallon aquarium weighs around half a ton. Take weight into consideration when choosing your aquarium setup. This method provides a good, rough estimate of the total weight of an aquarium with the tank, water, rocks, equipment, and decorations all figured in. Here are a few common aquariums and the weight you will need to take into consideration on average: ߜ 10-gallon tank, 100 pounds ߜ 20-gallon tank, 200 pounds ߜ 55-gallon tank, 550 pounds ߜ 100-gallon tank, 1,000 pounds ߜ 125-gallon tank, 1,250 pounds As you can see, you really need to make sure that your floor can handle the weight of heavier tanks.

When it comes to setting up an aquarium, there are no shortcuts.
