After you have decided on your tank type, size and shape, you need to know where to put it in your house. This is another important thing which is often over-look by beginners who think that they can easily re-located the tank if the original place chosen is not suitable. If you have this thinking, then just remember that a full aquarium is very heavy, difficult and dangerous to move. You will most probably end up with a broken tank unless you emptied the tank first. However, this will lead to other problem especially if your tank has already been stocked with fishes and invertebrates.
