People who own 1,000 gallon fish tanks will attest to the fact that taking care of these huge tanks requires expertise and special equipment and attention.
While smaller tanks of 100 gallons or less, can still be difficult to maintain due to the fact that smaller tanks are not as stable, getting these huge 1000 gallon aquariums cycled and stable takes a significant effort, and knowledge of fish tank maintenance, along with specialized equipment to handle that volume of water.
This is why a beginner should not attempt to start off with 1,000 gallon fish tanks. If a fish enthusiast is interested in owning a 1000 gallon aquarium, they need to refine their skills on smaller fish tanks first in order to become proficient before graduating to this size tank. There are valuable lessons that need to be learned on a smaller scale before they are put into practice on these very large fish tanks.
Gradually, the fish owner can build his way up to understanding how to care for the fish, corals, plants, aquarium equipment and accessories such as lighting, filters, protein skimmers, calcium injectors, and other items that will be required for these tanks. Once he feels comfortable with a smaller size, he can move up to the larger fish tanks.
By taking the steps required towards owning 1,000 gallon fish tanks meticulously, the tank owner will find that when the time comes to buy a large tank he will be ready for it.
