Where to Place and Where not to Place an Aquarium Tank

The good thing about this design is beauty. It looks colorful, to be frank. And that’s exactly what you should be aiming for at the end of the day.

One of the mistakes many aquarium owners make is keeping their fish tank near the door. Pets Keeps Guide advises against doing this.

Do not locate an aquarium near a door

Fish can be scared and shocked every time the door is opened and closed. You might not feel much of a shock when you close a door, but it is too much for the fish. The shock traveling through solid matter is much stronger than it is through the air. It goes through the wall, the floor, the aquarium stand, the fish tank, the water, and all the way to the fish. They can feel it, which is too strong for them if the door is nearby. The shock of a door closing can be a significant stress factor for your fish. Therefore, keep the tank away from the door if you want to keep your fish healthy and long-lived.

And as a beginner to aquascaping, you need to understand almost everything about this art to get things right. So, let’s first start by understanding how you can set up a fish tank.

According to Marine Land, you need to start with safety in mind. You will be dealing with fish after all, so the safety of the artificial marine life matters a lot.

Think of your fish as pets and you’ll agree, they deserve the best care and attention you can provide. They rely on you to keep their environment healthy. A healthy aquarium is relatively easy to achieve and maintain, but it will not happen by itself. It depends on you. In rivers, lakes and oceans, water is cleansed and filtered naturally. In an aquarium, it’s a different story. In order to keep aquarium water clean and healthy, you must help.
