A tropical aquarium in the home or office can bring a slice of tropical sunshine into everyone’s life!

The ever-changing panorama of fascinating and colourful fish darting through the glades formed by the garden of aquatic plants, is a source of never-ending pleasure. The soothing therapeutic qualities are well known, and is the reason for an aquarium often being found in doctor’s and dentist’s waiting rooms, or in hospitals. The basic necessary elements for putting together a successful tropical freshwater aquarium are really quite simple. Controlled heating, lighting, and some form of filtration are the principal considerations beyond acquiring the actual glass or acrylic “box”, which is the aquarium.
