Before you guys go rushing out to get a wall mounted fish tank or aquarium, there are a few things that you should be aware of:
Firstly, make sure that the wall that you’ll be mounting the tank or aquarium on is actually sturdy enough to support the weight. Although most of the fish tanks included in this list aren’t too large or heavy, there’s always a chance that your wall might struggle with the weight. Add on top of that the several gallons of water you’ll be adding to the aquarium, and you’re basically putting a big weight on your wall! So it’s absolutely essential that the wall is strong.
You’ll also want to make sure that you have the proper mounting hardware for your fish tank or aquarium. This will usually come with the tank (and has been specified above if it has been included).
Finally, generally speaking fish tanks and aquariums that you mount on walls tend to be smaller, to try and make them lighter. This means that you might not be able to fit larger species of fish in a wall mounted fish tank, so they’ll generally be better suited for smaller fish like Bettas.
Now for the positives! Having a fish tank mounted on your wall can save you huge amounts of space. Although fish are small creatures, the space that they require can be much bigger than you’d expect. By keeping your aquarium on the wall, you’ll save lots of valuable space. You’ll also keep your beloved fishy friends out of reach of people (or pets!) who could potentially knock their tank over.
Now let’s get into the guide:
