Set up Instructions
- To prepare for setup, rinse your gravel and décor with water, do not use soap or chemicals.
- Find a flat place, preferably on a manufactured aquarium stand (for warranty purposes), where there are limited light and heat sources.
- Add gravel, creating an upward slant to add depth.
- Do not plug the equipment in until water has been added.
- Fill the tank with water, which has been dechlorinated with AquaSafe, to roughly 75%-90%.
- Decorate the tank to your personal taste.
- Fill the tank the rest of the way, again with water dechlorinated by AquaSafe.
- You can now plug in all equipment safely.
- To start your Whisper Power Filter it needs to be primed which is done by pouring dechlorinated water into the top reservoir of the filter.
- Snap LED lights into the hood and place your hood onto your aquarium, plugin.
- After your heater and filter have had a few hours to run, you can safely add fish.
- Start by floating your bag from the store in the aquarium until the temperature of the water in the bag is the same as the water in your tank.
- Do not directly pour your fish into the aquarium as it may be dirty. Gently net your fish out of the storage bag and add it to the aquarium.
- Immediately add a bottle of SafeStart to begin cycling your aquarium.
