Snappers like to be able to lay on the bottom and reach their head up to the surface to breathe. So you want the water depth only about 2 or 3 inches for a baby.

An aquarium will be fine for awhile, in a year or two it will need something bigger. I used one of those blue kiddie wadding pools. They are cheap and work really great!

Use a filter that is twice as much as you would use for fish.

Good luck! Hope you enjoy your new pal. I really liked my pet snapper!
