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.

A fish tank of this size will provide sufficient surface area to allow adequate exchange of oxygen into the water and to provide a comfortable swimming environment for your fish. The oxygen supply in the water together with the water temperature will determine the success or otherwise of your fish keeping hobby. Tropical saltwater fish require a water temperature of about 75 degrees F. The warmer water in the saltwater aquarium will tend to deplete the oxygen in the water which means that the surface area becomes important. The addition of aeration equipment is usually desirable to increase the oxygen concentration. Aeration can usually be provided in conjunction with your filtration equipment.
