After your aquarium gets ready, fill the aquarium with lukewarm water and should put one drop of anti-chlorine medicine per liter. You can get this medicine easily at any of your nearby pharmacies. If it is your first time, then it is better to not to get an costly species of fish because chances are more that as you have less idea about their care taking, the fish of any type might die little quick while adjusting to the new aquarium’s surrounding.

On every 3rd day or 4th, you should clear 1/3 of water in aquarium and should replace it with lukewarm tap water. And after completion of every half month, you should clear 3/4 of the aquarium water again and must refill it with filtered water. By this process, you can ensure that the healthy and good bacteria are not washed out completely in the aquarium.
