Before you start, you first need an aquarium probably 60"L x 18W" x 24"H in size, artificial sand (the Tahitian Moon Sand, Aragonite Sand or the simple play sand will work), a couple of aquarium ornaments (artificial plants, aquarium rocks and caves) and aquarium ruins ornaments. You will also need a volcano kit, a Hydor Pico Aquarium Filter and at least eight tropical fish, such as guppies.
- Fill your aquarium. Put water in the aquarium and then add the sand. Wait a couple of minutes until the sand settles down before moving to the next step.
- Add the ornaments. Add the volcano air pump with light in the middle of the aquarium to give it a magical, wavy touch. Add the ruins ornaments beside the volcano. Place the rock, cave and plant ornaments to make it look as if there was a volcano flow in there.
- Add the Hydor Pico Aquarium Filter. Do this so that it will clean the tank and get rid of dirt.
- Put the fish in the tank. At the end, put the fish in the aquarium, turn off the lights and enjoy!
