Most tropical and Saltwater Fish will like a temperature of 78 degrees to 82 degrees. Goldfish will appreciate temperatures a little lower than this.

How do you take care of a fish in a aquarium?

To start with, you need to figure out what type of fish are in your aquarium. research the fish to figure out what they eat and at what temperature they should live in. You'll need a good filter made for your size of aquarium and a heater to regulate temperature. if you are keeping fresh water fish, put water conditioner into your aquarium and let it sit in the water with the filter on for about a day before putting fish into the tank. Putting decor in your aquarium provides shelter and entertainment for your fish, so decor like fake plants and rocks are suggested. After putting your fish into the aquarium, feed them twice daily and the filter will clean the tank itself. change the filter cartridge or rinse it out thoroughly at least once every 2-3 weeks. good luck! :)

How do you take care of a guppy in a fish bowl?

How temperature in the tropical fish aquarium may be controlled?

You should have a thermostatically controlled aquarium heater, and a good thermometer to monitor the temperature. Although they are sold, don't use the type of thermometer that you stick to the glass; that doesn't give you an accurate temperature. Use one that goes in the tank itself. For tropical fish, I have had the best success with the temperature about 75-78 degrees F.
