answer 2
The bottom is 24.25" x 12.5" and the black rim around the bottom comes up 0.5". So if you wanted to fill it with sand or gravel only up to the top of the black rim you would need 151.5 cubic inches of gravel. This would be enough to fill a 5.5" square cube or 0.65 Gallons.

Tank is tempered glass. General rule of thumb is 1 lb of gravel per gallon capacity. I used a 25 lb bag.

Absolutely! It comes with a 10-30 gal filter...if it was a 10-20 I would recommend a larger filter, because I like to leave a little reliability cushion for any hardware for the fish tank...i.e. it's better than it needs to be. Rest assured, it's more than adequate.

Question

Will you please tell me everything that I am going to need for my daughters 20 gallon fish tank?

I want my daughter to have a fish tank by Christmas but I would like to know what i'm getting into financially before I do. I need to know all I need for her fish tank. Also if you may have any recommendations for what fish to buy that would be great. I would prefer fish that glow in the dark with LED lighting. Thank you.

This kit comes with most of the basics you will need. I would recommend a heater (especially for tropical or freshwater tropical fish). You will also need substrate (mine has aquarium gravel: rule of thumb one pound of gravel to one gallon of water so for a 20 gallon tank you need 20 pounds of gravel), plants/decorations, and of course fish! I also recommend an air stone, bubble wand, or aerated decoration such as a treasure chest and air pump to help oxygenate the tank. My kit came with a sample of water conditioner but you will eventually need to buy more for water changes as well as replacement filters. The filter it comes with recommends that the media be changed monthly. I also recommend a gravel vacuum to make maintenance easier. And don't forget the food!

We purchased this aquarium for our daughter for Christmas. You will need an inexpensive heater, thermometer (stick on is fine), gravel for the bottom, decor like plants etc. We also bought a small bubbler to put under the gravel, and a water testing kit. That's about all you will need. We just started adding fish and started with a few guppies. I don't know anything about glofish, but I think that works best with different lighting.

I have read that 2 gallons per fish. When I set up my 10 gallon tank i intended to put fancy goldfish in it, but the guy at the pet store advised me to get 5 feeder goldfish to make sure the water was ok. I assumed that they would die, but in no time but they have continued to quickly grow. I thought 5 more feeders wouldn't make much difference, but they really are cramped so I upgraded to a 20 gallon. Cost of 10 fish...$1.00...2 fish tanks $140.00! Save your money and start with the 20 gallon or larger.

I am a beginning fish enthusiasts, but everything I've read, and been told, is to allow 1 inch fish per gallon. If you go to a pet store, sometimes the labels on the tanks say how many of the fish you are interested in will fit per gallon.
