A 10-gallon aquarium is a good start for beginners.
But once that’s done & dusted, you can switch over to a more efficient option.
Depending on your budget, you can go with a 30-gallon fish tank or a 55-gallon fish tank.
If you can go beyond 55 gallons, a large 125 gallon can be a good option as it’ll be adequate to keep your favorite fish and its tank mates.
But remember, the increased size would lead to high pricing.
And on the other hand, the extra space would open up many new aquascaping possibilities and easy-to-control parameters within the home aquarium.
If you’ve made up your mind and decided to go ahead with at least a 125 gallon fish tank, here’s a list of my top #3 picks.
Let’s get started with the list:
Aqueon® LED Aquarium & Stand Ensemble, 125 Gallon
I will be the first to admit that I’m not a massive fan of ornate or brightly-colored aquariums. My taste is a little more refined and simple, so I love this Aqueon LED Aquarium & Stand Ensemble.
The entire ensemble is simple in design and exudes an elegant beauty that only enhances the interior decor of any room.
The fact that it’s available in black or grey makes it even easier to accommodate your existing color palette.
Even though the LED lights are not as bright as I would have preferred, they still illuminate enough to show off the natural colors of your fish and plants.
Once you get everything situated inside, you’ll spend hours just sitting back and watching!
If you’re looking for a simple aquarium for your fish, I recommend this Aqueon LED Aquarium & Stand Ensemble.
It’s sturdy enough to last years and comes at a price point that won’t break the bank.
Marineland 125 Corner-Flo™ Black Rectangular Aquarium
The Marineland 125 is a pre-drilled rectangular aquarium that claims to be designed with filtration in mind.
It is available in two sizes: 72″ x 18″ x 22″ (182.9 x 45.7 x 55.9 cm) and 60″ x 18″ x 21″ (152.4 x 45.7 x 53.3 cm).
The tank is made of glass and has black silicone but can be customized with oak trim for an additional cost of $150.
Marineland 125 comes pre-fitted with bulkhead fittings, return pipes, drain, and dual Loc-Line.
Also, at the back of this tank, two overflows come pre-installed in each corner. They will be drilled for external filtration systems.
An aquarium hood will also need to be purchased separately, and an aquarium stands for support.
The Marineland 125 Corner-Flo™ Black Rectangular Aquarium’s overall customer rating is about average — most customers have had complete success with the tank. Still, some have experienced leaks from poor silicone coverage at the overflow areas.
ELOS System Diamond Line 120 XL (127 gallons)
The System Diamond Line 120 XL is currently the largest aquarium in the ELOS range of tanks.
At just over 5 feet long, it offers an awe-inspiring display for any living room.
It is made from ELOS Diamond Glass – highly polished and rimless, featuring ultra-low iron glass for superior clarity.
The tank has a support system with a pre-installed compact QuietDrain overflow connected to the optional SumpSS 36 Bashsea External Hybrid filter type, designed to fit neatly under the tank stand (sold separately).
The aquarium has been designed with the ELOS Panorama Light LED unit, a high-performance upgradeable lighting solution offering full-spectrum control to stimulate corals and plants.
The tank also comes supplied with an integrated wireless remote control allowing you to control numerous functions and settings of your aquarium via an app on your smartphone or tablet (compatible with almost all devices).
So, these are the three 125 gallon fish tank I would recommend you buy.
Honestly, I would single out a particular fish tank. So, instead, what I’ve done is, share their features with you.
Ultimately, you must decide based on your requirement and budget.
That’s all for now.
