1. You should always thoroughly research the type of aquarium you are going to be setting up before you purchase it. Make sure you have the proper gallon capacity and shape that will fit in your home.
2. Research the aquarium equipment you are looking at before you purchase it. Different sizes of aquariums require different pumps and heaters. Find out which products are best for your aquarium before you start ordering the wrong products.
3. It is a good idea to clean your aquarium with a soft wash cloth and warm water. The soft cloth will not leave scratches on the inside of your aquarium and will remove any unsightly stains.
