Types Of Aquariums.
Even though a majority of the aquariums are used to keep fish, not all of them are used for the marine animals. Another type of aquariums are the ones for aquatic plants and they are also attractive. Aquariums can be improvised from a dish bowl. If an aquarium is to be made from a fish bowl, it should be one that is spacious. Some of the requirements include a small net and two, one gallon bottles of unionized drinking water. Using tap water is not safe for fish. One should also not use treated water. Another important requirement is fish food. One requires to fill the fish bowl with water and then cover it with a plastic cover, in setting up the aquarium. Covering is important because it prevents fish from getting out of the bowl or another animal or object getting in. It is a requirement that one replaces twenty percent of the water on a weekly basis. If tap water is to be used, it should be deionized before being put in to the bowl. This is achieved by filling a one gallon water bottle half water, putting in water conditioner and tightly placing a cap. It is then left for three days before it can be used.
Cool water aquariums can also be made. They aquariums are placed in a room at the normal temperature and do not require a heater. An aquarium, aquarium stand and its cover are the requirements in setting up cool water aquarium. Additionally, one needs to have a five inch fish net, fish food and water conditioner. However, it is important reading the instructions contained in the aquarium and the water conditioner. After the structure is complete, one should wait for three days before placing fish inside. Only one fish should be added at a time and it should take three weeks before one fish and another. One gallon of water is supposed to carry a one feet fish. This helps avoid overcrowding for the fish.
Warm water aquarium is another type of quarium. This requires more skills to maintain than that of cool water. An aquarium, aquarium cover, a stand and a power filter with BIO-wheel are the requirements needed to setup the structure. A water conditioner and fish net of about 5 inch are also a requirement. Additionally, fish foods such as the floating flake food and freeze dried blood worms.
The other type that is becoming more and more popular is the betta fish vase. There has been a notion that betta fish can live by consuming lily roots alone. This should not be the case since the fish eats the roots for lack of better food. Floating food and dried blood worms are the healthy feeds that should be given to the fish.
