Quick Tips: Setting Up a Reef Aquarium Tank in Your Home
A reef aquarium tank can turn a plain, unadorned home into a stellar living space. Aside from having multi-colored fish swimming around, the living reefs can be a joy to stare at. Setting up a reef aquarium can be fairly easy if you follow some steps.
The Right Place
First off, select the portion of the house you would like the reef aquarium tank to be. Ideal places are anywhere that will not be hit by direct sunlight. The tank should stay away from windows, drafty areas, radiators, and other spots with fluctuating temperatures. Do not put the fish tank in a very busy location, either, but it should be visible enough to be enjoyed.
Another consideration is the size. Purchase the largest reef aquarium tank that your budget and space will allow. With a larger tank, there’s a higher chance of achieving an environment stable enough for saltwater fish to thrive in. Plus, you can easily maintain the water chemistry with a big aquarium.
