Tetra has launched a new and limited-edition aquarium to welcome young children into fishkeeping.

The 18L My First Aquarium is ‘set to inspire children to engage with the hobby through a range of friendly fish characters’ called Tiny Tetra, Bubbles, Gil, Finn and Flo.

Ashleigh Foster, aquatics marketing manager, said: “Fish make a great first pet. Not only are aquariums relaxing to have in the home helping to reduce stress in children but they also help to teach responsibility. For those new to the hobby the My First Aquarium offers a gentle introduction into the hobby and something the whole family can be involved with.”

Together with themed accessories including two posters, he said children can enjoy learning how to take care of their new pets with a set-up brochure and tips to ‘ensure everything goes swimmingly’ alongside a diary with a checklist to keep them on track of everything that is going on with their fish such as feeding times.

The aquarium comes as a complete kit including the Tetra EasyCrystal filter and two additional cartridges alongside gravel, a sachet of TetraMin food and a small sample of Tetra AquaSafe. RRP £34.99.
