Freshwater Fantasy Reef Aquarium for Kids:

Finding Dory-inspired fun for the whole family!

You've just returned from the theater, and your kids have fallen in love with Dory. But you know that Blue Tangs aren't for beginners. Here's an easy Freshwater Fantasy Reef Aquarium setup for kids starring a cast of hardy, eco-friendly fish to help your whole family discover the joys of home aquarium keeping.

Here's how you can create this Freshwater Fantasy Reef Aquarium in your home.

We've created this undersea effect by using artificial reef aquarium décor in a 29-gallon freshwater aquarium kit. The beginner fish we chose are farm-raised Platies, which come in a variety of colors. Plus they're livebearers, which means you can probably expect to see babies in your aquarium soon too! Here's the kit and décor you'll need to create a similar effect. Click the number to be directed to the product!
