In fact, creating a design for an aquarium with your own hands is absolutely simple from scratch. For any composition will need the same materials. It is important to have their quality and harmlessness so that the fish do not get sick. Decor elements will necessarily react with water and substances released into the water by decorations can be hazardous to the health of fish.

What is used for filling aquariums:

  • Priming;
  • Snags;
  • Plants;
  • Stones;
  • Seashells;
  • Figures from glass;
  • Ceramic and plastic elements;
  • The background.

Best of all, all decorative items were natural. Glass and ceramics are both bright and harmless. But plastic items can be very toxic. You need to search for them only in pet stores or specialized stores. Do not put any plastic element you like in the aquarium if you do not want the fish to die.

Soil should be selected carefully and carefully. Much depends on its quality. Do not take the primer artificially painted. Although they say that the dyes used are harmless, but acid bright sand just can not get from natural dyes. And not the fact that the water will not start to be painted.

Flooring in aquariums can be very different "caliber".

The smallest and most used is sand. Covering the bottom of the aquarium can still gravel, crushed volcanic rock, granite, basalt, gneiss. The choice of soil depends on the necessary alkaline environment in the vessel. A high content of calcium in the water will make the water much harder.

Stones for aquarium and soil should not contain lime. The presence of this substance harmful to small fish can be checked even at home: it is enough to drop table vinegar on the surface of the stone. Inappropriate decor will give a visible reaction and "hiss".

Such decorations are needed not so much to create an entourage, as in order for the fish to have their shelter. The stones are most often solid, and the stone cannot hide in any way. Snags are usually branched, which allows residents of the aquarium to easily hide. Moreover, natural snags will soften the water somewhat, which is necessary for some fish species.

Ready-made snags are sold at pet stores. They are already properly processed, fully adapted for a long stay under water.

How to make a snag for aquarium:

  1. Initially, it is necessary to remove all the bark from the branches.
  2. Find all loose areas on the future bark and cut them down.
  3. After branch need to boil with a small amount of potassium permanganate. If you do not fix it at the bottom of the aquarium, but do not want it to pop up, add salt to the water. Salt should be such an amount that it ceases to dissolve. Boiling should last about an hour.
  4. Now the snag needs to be removed, rinsed well with salt and left to cool.

When you create an underwater composition, first fill the ground, then install the snag, only after that take the plants and stones. Usually snag - the only large element in the entire aquarium. Do not pile space! Fish still need to swim somewhere.

Little about plants

Selection of plants - a very exciting and individual occupation. Algae incredibly much. They differ in form, color and type of attachment in the aquarium. There are algae that grow from the bottom, and there are those that swim on the very surface of the water. Also, when choosing algae, warn what your aquarium - fresh or saltwater.

One of the most beautiful representatives of the flora is Javanese moss. He looks gorgeous on the stones and snags. If desired, a snag can be decorated with Javanese moss so that it will look like a real green tree. Some create bonsai and whole underwater forests from moss and coals.

An important advantage of such a moss is absolute unpretentiousness. It grows quickly, does not require any care and special lighting. Only the color saturation of the plant will depend on the illumination: with a little it will be somewhat lighter, with a bright - darker. But moss needs a sufficient amount of carbon dioxide.

Set the stones

A very large selection of stones is presented in specialized stores. They sell stones for saltwater and freshwater aquariums. The first can strongly affect the alkaline balance of water, and this will negatively affect the fish. In general, the pH is largely determined by the stones, so do not throw in your "water world" like the first from the street.

The beautiful background of the aquarium gives an incredible effect of life under water. Moreover, it is one of the easiest options for decorating an aquarium. The background is placed on the back wall, but it can also capture the side walls. Usually mounted outside.
