If you’re looking for something a little larger then your average fish bowl but nothing too large to handle, then try 20 gallon fish tanks.
If you want the best looking 20 gallon tanks in town, then go with acrylic ones. They have superior clarity, are durable and lighter weight than glass, and are shatter proof. A shatter proof fish tank is always a great idea if you have children. Then you won’t have to worry about them messing around near it, breaking the glass, and hurting themselves (not to mention having your fish and all that water winding up on your floor). It would be very sad to lose both your beautiful aquarium as well as your expensive carpet. Let your mind rest at ease with an acrylic aquarium. The only down-side to acrylic aquariums vs a glass aquarium is that acrylic scratches much easier than glass, however, there are kits that you can get that make it very easy to remove scratches from acrylic fish tanks.
Another great reason to go with 20 gallon fish tanks is the price. Because these tanks are so popular, they are mass produced. This makes them a more affordable option. It also makes them easy to find. Just about every store sells this popular item. They can also be found online. And because competition is high, you can usually find some great deals.
Besides using a 20 gallon aquarium as a fish tank or for housing other pets, many enthusiasts use 20 gallon fish tanks as sumps in
their aquarium stands (underneath their larger fish tanks) in order to house unsightly equipment such as Protein Skimmers, or
Bioactive media, or pumps that would clutter up an otherwise attractive aquascape.
20 gallon fish tanks are perfect for the fish enthusiast that is just getting starting, or for more experienced enthusiasts that need to hide aquarium equipment.
