The very best fresh-water aquarium setup begins with all the right-sized container and a Fish Tank Stand online. It could not do you much good unless you know where to put it also if you get the biggest and top tank there is in the pet store.
I love having fish but hate ugly tank stands. I always think of those really ugly metal things that look like they belong in your grandmother's house. I was lucky to find this one that blends in quite nicely with my things.
