A nicely decorated fish tank can make a fabulous feature in any home or office. Decorations not only enhance the look of your tank, but with careful planning they can even complement the décor in the room. They can also be used to reflect your interests and personality if you opt for a particular theme or a touch of humour.
Creating an Environment
The most essential role of aquarium decoration is to provide a suitable environment for your chosen fish. Fish can feel vulnerable if they are totally exposed and prefer a well-furnished tank. If they have potential hiding places they will be more relaxed which is good for their health and which will ensure that they exhibit their natural behaviours. The fish will be more active and could even show improved colouration.
The Wrong Decorations
You can decorate your aquarium with anything which is not toxic to the fish but the various species will have preferences and so it is worth researching their natural habitats and needs. Please note that some non-toxic substances can become toxic when immersed in water as they can dissolve. In addition soft stone can be rubbed by fish and the resulting particles can choke the fish or block their intestines. Always avoid plastics which have not been designed for aquarium use as these may feature harmful chemicals.
