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.
