We are always mystified to the vastness of the aquatics world and the creatures and plants that inhabit this depth of water. The diversity of these different oceanic creatures, with images taken skilfully and artfully in photography works, never fail to amaze and thrill us.
It is through these galleries of pictures that showcase images of oceanic creatures that lead us to recreate the beauty of the aquatics world into our own home and space.
One way of recreating this water world is by having your own aquarium fish tank that will bring the wonder and beauty of the aquatic world into your home office or home.
The first thing to do in creating your own aquatic world is to plan in getting your own aquarium, which you can start by going to a local pet store or fish breeder and get ideas on the kind of fish you would have in your own aquatic world. The people at the store will be more than glad to help you decide the right size of tank for your space and offer you all the necessary accessories and equipment for your fish tank.
But before buying your fish, it is important that your fish tank is going to work efficiently and ready for your fish. First is to clean the tank thoroughly by using mild detergent and warm water to scrub out the surfaces of the tank, and make sure to remove all traces of debris and detergent. Gravel is an essential part of your fish tank to create the ocean floor ambiance for your fish, and so it is also important that you cleaned it properly by rinsing it under running water until you can see that the water runs clear.
When you set up your aquarium, it is advisable that you do not place it in direct sunlight since this will encourage algae to grow in the tank. When filling up with water your fish tank, it is advisable to fill it up half way only and a dechlorinated water is advisable to use.
Your next step is to install the filter and the heater if needed, but normally, an indoor freshwater aquarium fish tank does not need one. You can now proceed in decorating the base of your tank by placing rocks and ornaments, and make sure to create several hiding places for your fishes.
Be advised not to introduce your fish into the tank for at least two weeks after your tank has set up, and this is because ammonia can be a problem when new tanks are set up.
When you set up and maintain an aquarium fish tank takes a lot of time and money, but you will feel rewarded as you see your own aquatic world being a part of your living room or office.
