Reef aquariums can bring beauty to any space. The brilliant colors can brighten any room in your home or office.
The set-up, placement and maintenance of the aquarium are important factors in keeping a healthy environment for your reef to survive and thrive in.
You should choose a spot where you can enjoy your tank, but that isn’t overly busy, drafty, hot or cold. Buy the largest aquarium that will fit in your space. Larger aquariums provide a much more stable environment, because the water chemistry will be easier to maintain over time.
Choose adequate lighting for your aquarium, and remember that proper filtration is the key to maintaining a healthy environment. When setting up your filtration system, the UNISEAL is a great alternative to standard bulkheads.
When you first start your aquarium, it is a good idea to begin with inexpensive fish. This can save you a lot of money if the chemical balance isn’t correct, and rare and expensive fish tend to be less sturdy.
Once your aquarium is set up where you want it, with proper lighting and filtration, and the water is correctly balanced you can enjoy its beauty.
