Decorating Your Aquarium

Aquarium Decorations

Your pet store carries all kinds of materials to add character to your tank. These materials have many functions.

Bottom material: Gravel and sand are the most common bottom material. These should contain no calcium. Bottom dwelling fish like sand to burrow into. You can use gravel and sand, but, if you are going to have bottom dwellers it's recommended that you leave a portion of the bottom free of gravel. This gives the bottom dwellers a place to have as their own.

Rocks: Building areas in which the fish can hide, find shelter, and use for brooding, is ideally built using rocks and plants. These areas become territorial for some fish. Build these areas before adding other materials. The materials you add after constructing these cubby-holes help to anchor the rocks. A material should be placed between the rocks and glass. Styrofoam is ideal for this.
