I haven't had a tank in YEARS and want to get an acrylic tank for my son' room. it has to fit on a 20wx17d side table in his room, so i'm thinking under 20 gallons...?
i've been looking at the nano cube, biocube 14, biorb, and the sea clear 18... i think there are many others and am open to suggestions since i know nothing!
we want freshwater, maybe heated, maybe not?? something simple in terms of maintenance since we're just starting.
so my questions are:
1- which brand is good?
2- what kind of fish should i get?
3- if i get an aquarium 'kit' should i replace any of the parts that come with (i.e. filter, heater, light, etc)?
4- if you recommend a particular tank, please let me know what other accessories i should get (filter, heater, light...)
5- what other general advise do you have? open to all of it...
thanks so much in advance for your advise... i really need it!
