How to prepare an aquarium to run fish

Stages of work on the arrangement of a new aquarium
In order for the aquarium to function smoothly in the future, it is important not only to choose the right equipment, decorations and accessories, but also to do everything slowly, in the right order. The most important stages in the arrangement of the aquarium are:

selection of aquarium and equipment;
preparation of soil;
the landscaping of the aquarium and the choice of scenery;
preparation of water;

the run of fish.
Before buying, you should pay attention that there are two types of aquariums — marine and freshwater. It is equally important to choose the right shape: rectangular tanks are suitable for almost all types of fish, while in round tanks will be able to get along only some of the inhabitants. Before you install a new aquarium, rinse it thoroughly with chemicals.

Some tricks for the successful equipment of an artificial pond
Even small aquariums require special filters. They clean the container from dead algae, feed residues, organic waste. Useful and aerator, especially if the aquarium will be inhabited by a large number of fish. Provide them with oxygen-the main thing. For illumination it is better to buy fluorescent lamps, and to maintain a constant temperature — an adjustable heater.

Soil for the aquarium should be chosen based on the preferences of future inhabitants. At the same time, do not forget about disinfection, and if possible, add special nutrients. Special care requires the choice of driftwood. In any case, you can not use the wood of coniferous plants — a sharp smell and resin will not be pleasant for the inhabitants of the aquarium. The best options are willow, alder, beech, maple.

When the whole decor is prepared, you can pour water. Do this carefully, so as not to wash away the soil and not to spoil the composition. After 4 days after the procedure, start planting plants-start with the most unpretentious. And only after a week from the start of the aquarium should be placed in it the first fish, before that do not forget to turn on the heating and lighting.
