Looking to acquire a new fish friend, or two, for your home? If you’re swimming with glee about this incredible decision, then it’s about time to take the dive and purchase! In addition to purchasing your fish, you’ll also need some supplies such as a tank — but where should you place the tank in your home? Let us explain:

Size

When it comes to finding a location to place your fish tank in your home, there are many different options — but in terms of size, it may narrow down the possible spots. First and foremost, make sure that the tank is the appropriate size for your fish and one that will make them comfortable. Now, when it comes to placing the tank in a permanent spot, make sure it’s somewhere that will give you enough room to remove/clean the tank. Just keep in mind that you don’t want the tank to be crammed in a corner or tight space, since you’ll want it to be as accessible as possible.

Temperature

Another important factor to keep in mind when placing your fish tank in your home is to make sure that you keep it in a temperature controlled area. Depending on the type of fish that you have, your little fish friends will feel more comfortable in a room temperature area — not somewhere too hot or cold. This will not only be healthier for your fish, but it will also keep your little fishy friend happy, too!

Atmosphere

In addition to the temperature, you’ll also want to make sure that your fish’s tank is placed in a moderately light area and away from maximum exposure to sunlight. Why is this important? Since fish tanks are known to grow an excessive amount of algae when placed in the sunlight, it could definitely happy to your fish (no matter how big or small they are). The best solution is to place your fish in a little area that gains only a little bit of sunlight and is away from the windows.
