Fish Starter Kit

Fish Starter Kit

Fish can be the easiest pet to care for and also the hardest pet to care for.  Fish don't give you cues that they are sick or unhealthy as clearly as some other pets do.  Take note of all your fish's behaviors so you start to understand when your fish looks like it's not feeling well.  Fish are like any other pet.  They bond with their caretakers.  They definitely know you are there.

Aquarium:  This is going to vary with the type of fish you bring home.  A goldfish might need just a bowl and some water, but more exotic fish need oxygen and filters and alot more care in set up.  Ask your pet store what is recommended to start and gauge aquarium size based on your fish type.

Gravel: Coated or pre washed is ideal. There are a variety of types of gravel on Amazon.  Read the reviews to see what other fish owners reviewed.


Decorations: Decorating your aquarium is the fun part.  Have fun with the furniture and settle in your fish with some colorful new house plants.  Your fish will feel more at home and less exposed if there are places to duck and hide when it needs some privacy. 


Water Conditioner: De chlorinates tap water to make it fish-safe.  There are brands that some people prefer over others depending on fish type.  This is when customer reviews come in handy.  Customer reviews are chock full of tips on how to mediate dosage of conditioner and tips on how to best care for your fish.


Net: For transferring fish.  Standard.  Nothing fancy.


Gravel Washer: For water changes and cleaning. Crucial to get that squeaky clean feeling.


Fish Food: Consult your dealer for a recommendation.  Varies depending on your fish needs.
