Marine aquarium design reef aquarium, marine fish
Marine aquarium – a container filled with seawater and populated marine life.
Population structures of marine aquariums are divided into two types:
aquarium with marine fish
Aquarium with marine fish, as the name implies, was populated by marine fish and some invertebrates (mainly some species of sea stars and sea urchins). Reef aquarium besides the fish inhabits a large number of corals, anemones, shrimps, fan worms, and creates a picture of a coral reef. When designing this aquarium, for lighting it is better to use metal-halogen lamps. Conventional fluorescent lamps may be insufficient for the existence of corals and anemones. Proper lighting also allows you to more fully show the coloration of marine fish, the variety of which is huge — it scurrying among corals and small bright pomacentridae with tens of species; predatory lionfish, which may symbolize marine aquarium; prepodobnyi Moray eels, amazing seahorses, and noble “angels of the fish,” triggerfish — fish with interesting behavior, but very quarrelsome nature, and, finally, the memorable and inimitable clown fish that live in symbiosis with Actinia.
For registration marine aquarium are “living stones”. “Living stones” are stones taken from the coral reef and in the wet state in zoomagazin delivered to the company, engaged in the manufacture of aquariums. “Living stones” is very porous, inhabited by a huge number of natural microflora and microfauna, and are powerful natural biogeological filter. Biological filtration is the process of decomposition of specific bacteria fish waste. “Living stones” are already a natural set of bacteria. Formed from the skeletons of dead corals, they consist of a large number of tiny tubes, which are the natural “apartments” for billions of beneficial bacteria. Therefore, their importance in the process of installing biological balance in the marine aquarium it is hard to overestimate. The filling of the saltwater aquarium fish and invertebrates gradually. This is due to the fact that the biological filter “Matures” slowly. For that he has earned in full force, you have to wait until the biomass of bacteria reach the required number. This process takes on average 4-8 weeks, during which there is a gradual zasadka aquarium fish and invertebrates. Finally, the biological balance in the aquarium is installed in 3-6 months. And only after this time it is recommended to put in aquarium corals. It is very important to know when planning the creation of a marine aquarium. Even an experienced professional will not be able to quickly provide you “ready image”.
