If you are considering building an aquarium at home, then you should consider using acrylic to build the structure of your aquarium. This will help you create an attractive tank without having to spend much money. Here are some of the top ways to use acrylic in building your aquarium.
Selection of the Right Substrate
1. Gravel (preferred for freshwater)
2. Crushed Coral (preferred for saltwater)
3. Marine Sand (preferred for saltwater)
Aquarium Lighting System
Addition of Aquascape
1. First, choose plants that will grow best in your tank’s water conditions.
2. Second, keep in mind the space you have and how tall you want your Aquascape to be.
3. Third, make sure you take into consideration how much sunlight each plant type needs.
You must maintain your fish tank by having a filter. The filter will keep the water clean and help remove waste from the tank, which is good for the fish. Two types of filters can be used for an acrylic aquarium: mechanical and biological. Mechanical filters remove particles and debris from the water, while biological filters use bacteria to do this job. A mechanical filter should be replaced every six months or so, while a biological filter may last up to three years before needing replacement.
