Most aquaria consist of glass panes bonded together by 100% silicone sealant, with plastic frames attached to the upper and lower edges for decoration. The glass aquarium is standard for sizes up to about 1,000 litres (260 US gal). However, glass as a material is brittle and has very little give before fracturing, though generally the sealant fails first. Aquaria are made in a variety of shapes, such as cuboid, hexagonal, angled to fit in a corner (L-shaped), and bow-front (the front side curves outwards). Fish bowls are generally either made of plastic or glass, and are either spherical or some other round configuration in shape.
The very first modern aquarium made of glass was developed in the 19th century by Robert Warrington. During the Victorian age, glass aquariums commonly had slate or steel bottoms, which allowed them to be heated underneath by an open-flame heat source. These aquariums had the glass panels attached with metal frames and sealed with putty. Metal-framed aquariums were still available until the mid-1960s, when the modern, silicone-sealed style replaced them. Acrylic aquariums first became available to the public in the 1970s. Laminated glass is sometimes used, which combines the advantages of both glass and acrylic.
The event of preparing a new aquarium and building its inner environment is a huge amount of fun for all keepers and enthusiasts. That said, some thought should be given to ensuring the set-up is appropriate for the specimens you plan to keep. Sure, it’s really important you like the decorative aspect of the aquarium, but it is equally important that it satisfies the needs of the fish species that will spend their life within it.
Below are some essential tips to help you succeed at creating your dream aquascape with some long-term perspective for the fish you keep.
Aquarium size and dimensions.
aquarium decorations diy - While the popular catchall “Go big or go home” can apply to an aquarium purchase, a desktop or small aquarium is an option if the right type and size of fish are going to be kept. Make sure you understand the needs and behaviour of the fish species that you prefer as your aquarium needs to be big enough to accommodate them.
aquarium decorative rocks - Pay particular attention to the behavior part as some smaller species, due to their aggressive or territorial nature, may allow for only one male to be kept for example. When it comes to decorating the small aquarium, it is very easy to end up with a cluttered look. Try to create a central feature and complement it with your decor. Less is more here.
When planning the actual set-up, make sure you follow this sequence to help you avoid some common pitfalls.
aquarium decoration sealant - First and most importantly, thoroughly rinse gravel, natural structural decoration and anything else you intend to put in the tank. Create your structural aquascape and then fill the tank approximately halfway, at that point you can plant your plants.
Before you start the initial fill with water, remember to place a plate at the very bottom to evenly distribute the incoming water or otherwise dampen the force of incoming water to avoid upsetting your creative efforts.
