Acrylic fish tank is the basic container for ornamental fish, but what kind of fish is kept and what kind of acrylic fish tank is used are still closely related. When choosing an acrylic fish tank for ornamental fish, we must consider whether they live comfortably in it. For example, some aquariums have inconsistent length, width, and proportions. The length of the aquarium may be 1 meter, but the width is only 40 cm.
This acrylic fish tank is more suitable for home decoration. The original intention of the aquarium is not to keep the ornamental fish well, but to keep the limited space at home. Because most people who make aquariums cannot raise fish, we must distinguish this. Of course, if only the aspect ratio is not coordinated, the problem may not be very big. Most importantly, some fish tanks are well designed. It is well known that the higher the water level, the higher the water pressure. The higher the water pressure, the more dangerous it is to the safety of the aquarium and the health of the ornamental fish living in the aquarium.
Because the water pressure in the acrylic fish tank is too high, some fish in shallow water will withstand more water pressure in this tank. As a result, their physique will definitely decline, and more severely, they may also drop scales. Also, is the glass thickness of the fish tank safe enough? If the acrylic fish tank is high, the water level is deep, and the water pressure is high, but the thickness of the glass is not enough,
then it is likely to burst unexpectedly without warning in a certain use process, causing the aquarium to explode! The explosion box here means that the glass of the fish tank has really burst, not an explosion box that over-expands the ornamental fish! Therefore, when choosing an acrylic fish tank, it is recommended that the aspect ratio does not exceed 2: 1. For example, if the length of a fish tank is 1 meter, its width should not be less than 50 cm. The optimal aspect ratio of a water tank is five to five openings, a square water tank. The height of the acrylic fish tank should not exceed 70 cm, and more suitable is about 40 cm. If you keep small tropical ornamental fish, the optimal height of the aquarium should not exceed 30 cm.
The design of the aquarium should pay attention to the installation sequence of the infrastructure: 1) Place the aquarium shelf firmly at the selected position, lay a mat, and place the aquarium on it; check whether the aquarium is stable; step back and check whether the height is appropriate . 2) If a bottom filter is used, the filter plate and riser should be assembled and placed at the bottom of the tank after the aquarium is installed in place. Check that the height of the upper end of the pipe should be slightly lower than the edge of the box, otherwise the top cover cannot be covered eventually. 3) After adding a small amount of washed sand, the bottom of the particles is large and the top is small.
The average thickness of the sand is about 3 cm, leaving some for grass cultivation. 4) Place decorative stones and decorations. If a bottom filter is used, stones can pile up to cover part of the water pipe, but do not lean against the wall of the aquarium. When more than two stones are stacked, it is best to apply glass glue to the joints to lightly bond. 5) Whether sunk wood should be placed depends on the design requirements of the aquarium. If you want to plant grass on sinking wood, you can put it in later when planting grass, but if you don't plant grass, you can put it in at this time. Vertically sunk wooden bases should be tied with nylon threads and boulders. Fake aquatic plants can now be installed with stones and wood. 6) Fix the heater on the glass on both sides of the aquarium with a plastic suction cup.
If you use a built-in circulating filtration device, you can also fix it to the glass of the aquarium at this time. The heat dissipation effect of the inclined heater is better than the heat dissipation effect of the vertical heater, and the heat dissipation effect of the lower heater is better than that of the high heater. Some heaters cannot be completely immersed in water, and the position of the tail handle can only be raised slightly, and then adjusted after the water is released. Without drainage,
all appliances should not be energized. 7) Slowly pour water into the aquarium. Because the fish cannot be released temporarily, tap water can be injected directly at this time. When the water quality of the water tank changes or the new water tank ecosystem is incomplete, the water quality is prone to turbidity; although the water quality will be clarified for a period of time after the new water is replaced, it will be maintained for a few hours Cloudiness, because plankton and algae attach to fresh water that has not been disinfected, or when new fish and grass enter.
