Q. What about how many fish per gallon rules such "one inch per gallon" or "one centimeter per two litres?"
For starters, the one inch per gallon rule (or 1cm per 2L) only works for tropical freshwater fish; cold and marine fish need more space. Also, tanks are often not filled to capacity; space at the top and displacement by decorations and gravel varies from tank to tank. Nor does it account for the shape of the tank (a consideration as non-standard shapes become popular) or the needs of specific fish species. However, for standard-shaped tropical freshwater aquariums, the one-inch-per-gallon rule gives a similar result as the surface area rule. Regardless of the rule, the adult fish size and body type still needs to be considered--not the juvenile sizes most commonly sold in fish stores.A fish tank of proper size is one of the very first requirements for setting up an aquarium correctly. Its importance is often overlooked. Undersized fish tanks can cause many problems including but not limited to: Unstable water perimeters; quicker build-up of harmful chemicals; lack of enough oxygen; hard to keep clean; and not enough swimming room for the fish. Most of these problems can lead to the death of fish. Aquariums come in many shapes and sizes. When choosing a tank for your Oscar you should opt for a tank that will allow the Oscar to swim back-and-forth quite easily. Therefore, avoid dome and hexagon -shaped aquariums, they don't have enough length in them to allow the Oscar room to swim freely.Aquarium dimensions and sizes may vary slightly by brand or by trim type and color. The aquarium dimensions of one brand of tank may be slightly larger (or smaller) than the aquarium dimensions for the same gallon tank of a different brand. Similarly, the aquarium dimensions of a tank with one color trim may be a slightly different aquarium size compared to the same gallon tank with a different color trim.The question arises: what size of tank do goldfish need? Glass aquariums come in many shapes and sizes, and it can get overwhelming trying to figure out which one would be best for you and especially your fish. Here is a helpful guide to selecting which tank size you should get.Here is a listing of standard aquarium sizes along with the amount of water weight they hold. That weight does not include decorations or the tank itself.
