Aquarium as Decoration
Sometimes you may think that you need something to decorate the room. Something that is not boring such as those vases or other decorations. If you do, then aquarium would be one of the best types of decorations for you. With those beautiful fishes swimming about and also the lights and underwater decoration, you can never feel bored. They will keep you entertained and feeling more relaxed, especially after a long day at the office. It is no secret that aquariums do have a calming effect on all of us. It will give a different and more natural effect than the television. However, we have to realize that because the fishes are living creatures, we also have to provide them with the best environment. Sometimes, just because they are living in a totally different world than us, we can forget that they do need the treatments. Otherwise, the can also get sick and die. It would not be fair to keep them just when we want to. We have to have a schedule.
The Aquarium Maintenance
Remember that you will need a treatment schedule and not only doing the cleaning when you want to or when you see some spots of dirt in the aquarium. On daily basis, you will need to see the level and also the temperature of the water. You also need to feed your fishes two times a day. However, when you find food that is uneaten, you have to remove them immediately before you fee them again. These leftover will immerse in the water and make it dirty. Similarly, when you spot a fish that looks ill, you need to immediately separate them from the others in order to avoid them to infect then others. Every week, you need to remove the algae inside the aquarium and remove all the gravels at the bottom of the tank. Clean them all and remove max 10 percent of the water with fresh water.
