The 55 gallon APF10556 aquarium tank from Perfecto Manufacturing / Marineland is a nice, classic glass tank suitable for starting your large aquarium setup. It’s a glass tank, so it weighs around 60 pounds and will require delicate care when setting up.
Once in place, however, it’s capable of offering a lifetime of enjoyment and ease of use. For large tanks like this, glass offers the advantage of being easily cleanable as the interior walls get covered in gunk over time. It’s a suitable material for any type of setup. Freshwater and saltwater species will be equally at home in this large volume tank.
It is 4 feet long, so you will need a suitable stand capable of supporting both the size and weight of this tank. Never take any chances when it comes to the safety of your fish and your home. One nice thing about a tank of this size is the presence of plenty of room for the addition of décor and plants. It is even an ideal home to start your own coral reef, should you go with a saltwater environment and have an interest in caring for a reef.
Large capacity tanks, like this, offer room for error when chemical corrections are concerned. As such, it’s actually an even more suitable tank for a beginner than a smaller aquarium would be. Pair this bare tank with a filter, pump, heater, and some lights, and you’ll be well on your way to an enjoyable aquarium right in your home.
