Aquariums & Fish Tanks

If you're looking for an aquarium tank, you've come to the right place. The Tech Den provides a huge range of aquariums in all shapes and sizes perfect for the type of fish tank you’re looking to create. We carry smaller fish tanks such as our nano tanks, perfect for beginners and those limited on space, as well as larger fish tanks that pair with fish tank stands and cabinets.

What Are The Benefits Of Having An Aquarium?

An aquarium can be a beautiful addition to any space, contributing to a sense of serenity and tranquillity. Beyond aesthetics, aquariums can promote mental wellbeing, providing relaxation and stress relief. They can also serve as a valuable educational tool, offering an opportunity to learn about aquatic ecosystems and the care and growth of different fish species.

How To Choose The Best Aquarium

When choosing an aquarium, several factors need to be taken into consideration:

  • Aquarium Size: The size of your aquarium depends on a number of factors. Including the type and variety of fish and aquatic pets you want to keep, decorations and other aesthetics that you can add to your aquatic tank and the amount of maintenance that goes into it. Compared to large tanks, nano tanks may be easier to manage and fit in limited spaces, but they limit the number and species of fish you can keep.

  • Location: Aquariums need to be placed in a safe, level area that can support their weight. They should also be situated away from direct sunlight, heating vents, and air conditioners to prevent rapid changes in water temperature. Aquarium stands and cabinets don’t only keep the tank at eye level but are also ideal for ensuring that your aquatic tank is safe from external factors and potential damage.
  • Equipment: Besides the aquarium itself, you will need various equipment like filters, heaters, lights, air pumps, and more. Ensure the aquarium you choose is compatible with the necessary equipment.

Which Aquarium Is Best For Beginners?

Getting your first aquarium is always exciting. Should you start with a small fish bowl, nano tank or go for a large aquarium instead? 

Whilst there are many factors to consider in choosing the right aquarium, our experts recommend starting off with a larger aquarium rather than a smaller one. This is because your aquarium is an ecosystem, it’ll not only support your aquatic pets but with so many things to consider, a larger aquarium is less susceptible to change as compared to smaller tanks. 

It’s easier to maintain stable tank conditions in a larger tank, balance the temperature and maintain hygiene. Smaller tanks may require more frequent maintenance, and as a beginner, that can get really difficult, really quick.

From freshwater to saltwater, we offer a diverse range of aquariums for both home and office use, perfect for every type of fish enthusiast.

Some of our popular fish tank brands include:

  3. Red Sea

Starting a home aquarium can be challenging, with so many factors, including filters, air pumps and lighting, it can get confusing. Feel free to contact our aquatic experts for any questions or concerns you may have about supporting your fish and aquatic pets.
