    Fish tanks can be an attractive addition to a home, and an easy to maintain pet for children. The best way to begin is with a fish tank starter kit, which contains all the elements (except fish) that you’ll need to establish a tank. Starter kits can include the tank, a filter/pump, light, heater, and even gravel and fake plants for the perfect tank aesthetic. Starter tanks run 2-20 gallons on average; the larger the size, the more fish you can keep, but it will also be harder to maintain and will take up more room. When setting up a tank, be sure to avoid placing it in direct sun or in areas where there are drafts.
