How to create the custom aquarium

One of the best things about the aquarium hobby is that there are so many possibilities. When it comes to setting up a tank, your only limitation is your own imagination, and you can make that tank as simple or as elaborate as you want. From realistic recreations of freshwater and saltwater environments to whimsical flights of fancy, you can create an aquarium that is as unique as you are.

Build Your Own Coral Reef

If you have experience with saltwater tanks, you can use your aquarium to recreate the environment you would find around a coral reef. You can use an assortment of natural corals, as well as live rocks and reef invertebrates to recreate a coral reef in your own living room. Once that coral reef is in place, you can stock your tank with a variety of fish that come from natural reefs throughout the world.

Kid-Themed Tank

If you have children in the home, why not create a kid-themed aquarium based on a favorite movie or TV show. You could, for instance, create a Finding Nemo tank, complete with clownfish and place it on sphinx area rugs, or a Little Mermaid tank decorated with item related to the movie.You could also create a Sponge Bob Square Pants tank with decorations designed to look like the world of Bob and his underwater friends. You can get the kids involved and let them help pick the perfect plants and decorations to bring the theme to life.

Create Your Own Mountain Stream

Many species of freshwater fish live in streams and other small bodies of water. You can recreate their natural environment using an assortment of driftwood, rocks and natural colored gravel. You can use airstones and other water agitators to recreate the movement of the water, and stock the tank with colorful fish you might find in a local waterway.

Lake Caves

Many of the cichlids sold in pet stores originate in Africa lakes like Lake Malawi, and those fish naturally spend a lot of time in caves and crevices within the rocks.You can recreate this natural environment by providing a generous amount of rocks and arranging them to create caves a other hiding places Providing a more natural environment helps with spawning behavior and allows these engaging fish to be happier and healthier.
