The Top Fin 40 gallon fish tank is quite good value with a reasonable price point for beginners or professionals looking for a new tank. It does come with a black trimmed hood as standard with a fitting for a fluorescent light sold separately. Other accessories such as filters and nets also need to be purchased separately which detract slightly from the value add although this would mainly affect new aquarists. Aquarium Stand 40 Gallons

Anybody who has taken a look around our website knows that we’re big fans of SeaClear products, and this 40 gallon fish tank is no exception. It’s a starter aquarium kit, which means it comes with a whole bunch of goodies to help you get started on your fishy adventure. Here’s the main features of this 40 gallon beauty:This is a 40 gallon System II aquarium, which is not only a fish tank with an awesome name, it’s also an awesome tank full stop! It comes with a variety of features that make it simple to instantly create the perfect environment for your fishy friend. Here are the important features:There are many methods for filtering a 40 gallon aquarium adequately. Some recommended filters are: AquaClear 500, Filstar XP2, Fluval 204, Emperor 400, Eheim Ecco 2233, or H.O.T. Magnum 250. All of these methods would benefit from an airstone.So, lets start with tank size and and kinds of tropical fish. Most tropical fish will get to be as large as one to three inches in length. A good rule of thumb for tropical community fish is 1" of fish per gallon of water. If you plan on having more than 10 fish (depending on their adult size), you may want to invest in a larger aquarium such as a 20 or 40 gallon. You will also need to purchase a hood with a UV light. Most aquariums that are sold in the stores include this. For tropical fish, always make sure to purchase a thermometer. These may be purchased at your local pet store. They have adhesive on them and may be placed on the outside of the aquarium. Along with this, you will need to purchase an aquarium heater(most heaters are easy to use and have valves for controlling your water temperature) and a filter. The filters come in all kinds and sizes. I use a filter that fits over the outside of the aquarium, and these filters work very well! They are power filters and have filter cartridges that must be replaced approximately every two weeks. Under- gravel filters are preferred by some individuals, but power filters are the most popular. They are easy to maintain and work extremely well at keeping your aquarium water filtered. See photo under the article section, Cleaning Your Aquarium.Believe it or not, each shelf can hold 1000lbs. A 40 gallon breeder tank shouldn’t weigh more than 400lbs, so you don’t have to worry about your aquarium rack not being strong enough.The next step is to buy your fish. You have many choices here. I do not have any live bearing fish, such as guppies, platies, and mollies. These tend to reproduce like crazy, and you will end up with a lot of little baby fish in your aquarium. I prefer the non-live bearers, such as barbs, tetras, danios, and corydoras (catfish). Angel fish are beautiful, but get up to 5" to 6" in length and are a little more on the aggressive side. This does not mean that you cannot have a beautiful, healthy community aquarium and incorporate angel fish into it, but remember to have a large tank. Always remember to get maybe three fish (for small aquariums, such as 10 gallons) to start with and 6 to 9 fish to start with for 20 to 40 gallon aquariums. This is because the filtration system that is composed of beneficial bacteria is not yet established. I will discuss this later in the article. Here are some pictures below of common species of fish sold at the pet stores.
