    Aquarium Kits 11 to 19 Gallons

    Purchasing an aquarium kit can be a great way to get your new aquatic hobby started! Kits often come in unique sizes and shapes that will have your aquarium standing out from the standard rectangular tanks. Kits typically include lighting, filtration and occasionally other accessories such as a heater, fish net or even sample fish food to get you started, all bundled up in a price discounted from what it would be if you bought everything individually.

    FAQs About 11 to 19 Gallon Aquarium Kits

    The general rule of thumb is one inch of adult fish per gallon of water. Consideration must always be given to the adult size of the fish for proper sizing.

    Kits can come in unique shapes and sizes, sometimes different from standard aquariums to give you a more personal setup. They often come with multiple basic accessories at a discounted price compared to purchasing each item individually.

    Your aquarium will need to be completely set up with filtration and heater running for at least 24-48 hours before adding any fish. The water may still be cloudy at this point so you should wait until it has cleared. If the water temperature has remained stable and the cloudiness has cleared, you are now ready to begin the cycling process of your new tank and can add a few hardy species (dependent on the size of your aquarium).
