The first and the most important factor about anything which is related to an aquarium is how easy or hard it is to set up. This is the first thing that comes to our mind. Therefore, at first, we will talk about the set-up of this Tetra 25931 TetraFauna Viquarium. Basically, the set-up part is quite easy. You need to do a lot of steps but those are clearly instructed, so you won’t find that much difficulty to set it up.
All you need to do to set this Viquarium is, first decide whether you want it on the left or on the right side. Then place the pump chamber on your selected side. Then one by one set the filtration box, riverbed section. You need to set the box very carefully so that it does not shift its position. You can set the dry land area with some coarse gravel, ferns, plants, tree branches, rocks, moss or other decorating pieces. None of these come with the box, you have to purchase these separately. Just decorate the place as your imagination.
