However, tap water can be a little dangerous too, they can be chlorinated which is harmful to your fish but no need to worry, since there are chlorine remover available in the market.
  • 8. Filter System
    Aquarium filters get rid of soluble chemical and physical waste products from fish and other stuff inside the aquariums. These are essential to sustain life as aquariums are fairly small, closed volumes of water compared to the natural environment of most fish.
  • 9. Air Pump
    The air pump is an important part of the aquarium, especially if the fish tank has no power filter to make surface interruption for more oxygenation.
  • 10. Light
    Inappropriate or inadequate aquarium lighting can cause fish stress, poor growth and health, minimal activity and coloration of fish. The purpose of fish tank lights is to replicate the natural conditions of light in their natural habitat.

    Aquarium backgrounds give a greater depth and visual appeal to the viewers. The tank should be furnished with rock structures or other aquarium ornaments to provide hiding and breeding places for fish. The right types of rocks for the aquarium include granite, lave, slate, quartz, basalt and sandstone.
  • 13. Plants – Real or Artificial
    Water plants are not only great for aquarium, but they are good for fish too. They provide shadow to fish which is helpful for shy fish. Plants are used as a spawning nest for some fish and they also serve as food for plant eating fish. Of course in some tanks, with big plant eating fish, real plants are hopeless to live and it will be better to choose plastic plants.
  • 14. Fish
    Fish varies from the type of environment they live. Yes, all fishes live in the water but they differ in the type of water, some are fresh water and some are saltwater.
  • 15. Fish food
    Kids should be guided in feeding their pets, they might overfeed the fish and will make the tank dirty and the food will just be wasted. You should also check the food for your child’s fish; fish foods normally contain macro nutrients, trace elements and vitamins needed to keep fish in good health.

Each of the parts mentioned play a very important role in maintaining the wellness of the tank and the organisms in it. Moreover, failure of completing the necessary parts of the aquariums may cause your aquarium to be ineffective.
  • 17. Though there are stores that offer you a cheaper material needed to complete your child’s fantasy of water world, however, don’t fall into the trap of the idea that the cheapest the material the better it is to purchase, think over about the quality and the years of staying durable.
