Aquarium Tips: Part 1

Aquariums of Samit Roy - Graphics Designer and Digital Artist

Tips that you must know before setting up an Aquarium Part 1:

1. Your aquarium is not a lifeless toy or showpiece like your Ming flower vase or Michelangelo replica. It is a living being – growing, breathing, aging like us. You need to treat it as a sensible and delicate life form. The idea is to set up a replica of the living nature, in a very small scale.

2. Decide the place you want keep your tank, before you buy it. Measure the space. Remember, you will need minimum 2’ wide area on both sides of the tank and 1’ at the back. You will need this area to maneuver your tanks and sometimes to keep accessories.
