It is very important to not forget the main purpose of the aquarium that is to provide life for the organisms that are in it. That is why, choosing a “home” for living organisms to keep and breed them, you can divide aquariums into the following groups:
- Marine or freshwater;
- Cold water or warm water;
- Shallow or deep water;
- Are common;
It helps to understand what rules are important to follow in order for the maintenance and breeding of fish or other living organisms in glass aquarium tank to be successful. As practice shows, the vast majority of mistakes that lead to problems in the aquarium were made when choosing. Therefore, it is very important to purchase aquariums in specialized stores, where knowledgeable people will help you choose an aquarium and create optimal conditions for the life of certain underwater inhabitants. Next, it is important to touch on all the main elements without which it is difficult to imagine a modern aquarium, namely:
Glass tank; stand; Lid; Compressor; thermostat; Lighting.
Modern tanks for aquariums are made from two types of glass: Silicate or silicon glass, which is characterized by increased hardness and transparency. However, it is more fragile. Acrylic or organic glass, characterized by flexibility, plasticity and strength. This variety is more susceptible to the negative effects of all kinds of chemicals. The choice of a glass tank should be made based on where the aquarium will be used. Separately, it is important to note that all panoramic, corner and other non-standard models are made only of acrylic glass, since flexible material is required to create them.
