How to Setup a Marine Aquarium

The siting of a marine aquarium is reasonably essential. If subjected to powerful sunlight, it has a tendency to turn green extremely quick, so find a corner protected from the direct rays of the sun.

The floor of the tank should be covered using the typical aquarium sand-well washed, of course-but regrettably plants can't be introduced. There's no recognized marine vegetation which will prosper in such confinement; as a result the furnishing is restricted to rocks, shells, corals and stones. Keep in mind usually to boil them in water prior to introducing them into the tank.

Continual aeration and filtration is an important requirement, so fit a appropriate airlift-type filter.

Having ready the 'home' for our marine fish, all that's essential then would be to introduce the fish. However it is extremely essential to limit the quantity of fish to about 8 or 10 in a 20-gallon aquarium, assuming the fish are about 2 inch long. There are not many great citizens amongst the marine fish community.
