Fish Tank. Published at Monday, September 11th 2017, 08:41:11 AM by Marveille.
One of the ways for both you and your fish to enjoy the aquarium is through the choice of fish tank decorations you make. These are what add background for you to enjoy viewing and for the fish to have fun playing in, around and with. In fact, decorating your aquarium is an essential part of caring for your fish. They enhance the beauty of the fish`s living quarters while making it a focal point of your home. If you arrange them carefully, you`ll always have a sense of peace, elegance and harmony even when the rest of your house is a wreck.
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.
You may want to consider setting up a mirror in your aquarium. When you add them in effective ways, it makes the tank look larger than it actually is. Not only that, your fish will swim around and play with their reflections. If your tank is a smaller one, mirrors can be used to add more movement overall without putting too many fish into the tank. It`s actually pretty easy to install these mirrors effectively. You simply attach one to the back glass pane or put one mirror on each end of the tank. If you mount the mirrors on the inside of the tank, be sure that any rough edges that may be present are completely smoothed away. Otherwise, you`ll risk injuring the fish if they should accidentally hit one of those sharp edges. That`s something you definitely want to avoid happening. But once the mirrors are installed correctly, you`ll love watching how much fun your fish have playing with those "new" fish that seem to have been added to their home. They can amuse themselves, and you, for hours on end just from those mirrors.
