You don`t have to use only rocks, either. There are plenty of tank ornaments that allow your fish to dive, hide in and explore. These can be underwater castles, houses, and anything else that you can think of. Manufacturers have been very creative when it comes to fish tank decorations. Any theme that you want your fish tank to have, you`ll be able to find exactly what you need. Don`t feel that you need to do all fish tank decorating at once. Take your time in choosing the theme you want to follow as well as each item you select after that. Add an item here and there so that you`re not rushed when choosing them. In the end, you`ll have an aquarium that reflects your personality and provides a great place for your fish to play and grow.
It may be a wise investment to select a water testing kit when you are picking out your fish tank supplies. This will enable you to determine the nitrite, PH and salt content in the water. If any problems are detected these can than be quickly corrected. Lights will add different colours to you fish tank, and form another important part of fish tank supplies. They are available in three colours red, green or blue, and will add an attractive tint to the fish tank. Fluorescent and metal halide fish tank lights seem to be by far the most popular choice.
Even a small aquarium fish tank is heavy - one gallon of water weighs about 10 lbs - so your new tank will require a sturdy stand. There are dedicated aquarium stands available that will provide a solid base, although a small fish tank might sit on another item of furniture. Use a layer of polystyrene tiles between the tank and the stand to even out any bumps. When setting up your aquarium try to avoid placing it in direct sunlight, which will cause algae to grow in the tank. Remember it will need to be situated near a power outlet as many items of tank equipment require a power source.
