Whether you are setting up a saltwater, reef or freshwater aquarium system, it is important that quality materials andequipment are used. This is essential to maintaining a long lasting system. A custom aquarium design completed by professionals will ensure the success of your aquarium. Below are some factors to consider when deciding to install an aquarium in your home or office.
The foundation of any aquarium is the tank. The glass must be the correct type and thickness for the size of the tank to ensure that it will hold the weight of the contents once it is set up. The glass should be clear with no flaws or scratches. The seams of the tank must be sealedcorrectly with a quality sealant. This ensures that the tank will not have any leaks and will hold up over time.
Quality equipment is a very important aspect of any custom aquarium design. Poorly made equipment, such as powerheads, filters and filtration systems and heaters, are more likely to fail or not performproperly. A failure could mean the loss of the fish and the plants in the tank. Lighting is also an important aspect of an aquarium. Using thewrong kind of lighting system for a chosen aquarium can also mean the death of the fish and plants.
The location of the aquarium is very important its health. For example, if an aquarium gets too much direct sunlight during the day, it can make the water temperatures fluctuate widely from day to night. In addition, a lot of sunlight is ideal for promoting unwanted algae growth in the tank.
The temperature fluctuations of the room where the aquarium willbe located dictates whether a heater, a chiller, or both are necessary.Aquarium must be kept within the ideal temperature range for the type of aquarium installed.
Most aquariums are set on a stand made specifically for that purpose. If a stand is used, it is important that it is well made and that it canwithstand the weight of the chosen aquarium. In addition, if the standis made of wood, the finish must be properly sealed or the surface will be quickly destroyed.
