Plants also have a significant effect
Plants for aquariums is there in the different shapes, sizes, and colors, which range from naturally light green to a dark red. Usually, the plants directly in the soil are planted. There are also types such as the Java fern, which grows on decorative objects in the pool. Floating plants like the water lens drive freely in the water on the surface and provide both protection and optical effects. Generally Aquarium owners have two choices in plants, there is namely stem and leaf crops. While first – as the name suggests – along their stem develops the new leaves, the leaf plant has always only one sheet per stem. They are sold commercially in a pot, as a potted plant, while as U.S. stem plants are available.

It is clear, however, that this operation only when sufficient light is going. Therefore, an adequate supply of light of the Aquarium is absolutely necessary and the quality of life of the inhabitants of the Aquarium.
There is too little oxygen, algae will develop increasingly. The basis of food, siphoned from the right plants however especially fast-growing plants that are responsible that no excessive algae propagation takes place. Therefore, the following types should ideally occur:

Choice of the Aquarium bed is visually important
How is the floor of the Aquarium, has not only visual effects, but also significant influence on the quality of the container itself. Because the water is filtered, is the supply of nutrients and should be the stop for plants. Can be distinction here between sand and gravel. Who now wonders where that differentiation is, so this can be explained simply:
Sand has a grain size of 2 mm, everything is bigger, is a pebble.
Fine Aquarium sand often has a grain size of 0.1 to 0.5 mm.
What floor is the reason so is right for the chosen Aquarium, depends also of the species, which is kept in it. While grundelnde residents such as armoured catfish prefer rather fine sand, because they can easily dig and quasi “flush their gills”, crabs and shrimp rather prefer the coarser sand. This search is also the ground for food, can but the grains lift and turn with the scissors.
Of course, there are also sufficient AQUARIUM animals that love to be kept on gravel. Among them are antenna catfish and loaches, but also cichlids. Important to know is that plants in the Aquarium have installed generally better on coarse gravel and also better keep.

This provides just the right atmosphere, being huge selection thanks to numerous subject films or special 3D effects. Those who opt for a wall of the structure, which enhances the depth and sets special accents on the decoration in the water. Also they look very natural and offer additional area in an design for individual fish species.
With slides is a very popular form of the design of back panels. They can be quite easily yourself attached, where the selection of motifs is very large. There are those with underwater motifs that represent for example a back wall or but a green plant Aquarium. Who want to use understatement, a rear panel can choose monochromatic in black.
