Tetra Cascade Globe Aquarium

I have never had an interest in fish or aquariums,until recently. It started when we were our local pet shop buying food for the new puppy. My son spotted some peculiar fish in the aquariums at the back of the shop.

 

Black with bulbous eyes, they looked like cheeky little frogs and how they made us laugh!

Black with bulbous eyes, they looked like cheeky little frogs and how they made us laugh! I now know they are called Black Moor Goldfish! I wondered what it would be like to greet these little creatures everyday…

It was for this very reason that I was intrigued by the offer of a Cascade Globe. I the LTD Edition in white.It is also available in a bordeaux red.

 

Setting Up the Aquarium

This is surprisingly easy, I am usually hopeless at this stuff, but the instructions have illustrations that make everything very clear.

Here is a short video to show you how I set up ours, minus the fish…

 

 

The Details:

Tetra UK have an excellent website with lots of valuable info if you are new to this like me. They can advise you on feeding your fish too. I spent about £15 pounds on accessories for the aquarium

My Aquarium

I have set up our aquarium in the conservatory, we have a lot of plants in there and it fits in well with the decor. The sound of the water falling creates such a calming atmosphere that it is now my favourite place to sit and plan my next creative endeavour!

Future Plans

We have decided to buy a couple of tiny fish for our aquarium, they will be well looked after and may even start a new found love of all things aquatic? Watch this space…meanwhile you will find me snoozing in the conservatory accompanied by the sound of tinkling water!

    It’s such a fab design. I have never seen one like that before.
    I love how you have set it up. Like an indoor water feature. I bet it sounds magical xx

    Please do some research about the space requirements for any fish you’re thinking of purchasing. Very few animals can be kept healthy in an aquarium that small.

    That sounds like a fun acquisition, soothing and a place you can have fish. When I was a kid we called the fish you describe Black Mollies.
