Getting pet fish is an exciting experience. Not only are they easy to maintain, but they are also pretty to look at. However, it is essential to decorate the fish tanks to make them stand out even more.
This article has compiled a list of things one should keep in mind when selecting freshwater fish tank decorations.
How roomy is the tank?
If you don’t give your fish enough room to move, they’ll be very distressed. Instead of multiple decorations that leave your fish with little room to live in, try to have one or two that stand out. Consider choosing a design theme if you have trouble making a choice.
How tall are the decorations?
Create three zones in your tank: bottom, middle, top. It is critical to leave some space in each of these zones since fish spend most of their time in one of these zones.
The most prudent approach would be for one or two tall and then two or three short items. It will make the fish feel more secure if there is some structure around your decorations.
How striking are your fish?
You can complement or clash your decorations with your fish by choosing the right colour. For example, using dark decor for light-coloured fish or white gravel for colourful fish. The contrast between the fish and the colourless background makes the fish stand out.
How sharp are the edges?
It is sometimes possible for fake plants to have sharp edges. Scratching their scales can create injuries on your fish and expose them to infection.
As you choose accessories for your aquarium, be sure to avoid sharp edges, so you can create a pleasing aesthetic without compromising the safety of your fish.
When selecting freshwater fish tank decorations, it is also imperative to keep in mind the well-being of the fish. You would not want a tiny accident on your watch, would you?
