Everyone who has decided to acquire such a miracle of the underwater world as an aquarium is experiencing many difficulties. That's because many people have no idea what it takes to make a beautiful large aquarium pleasing to the eye, and not just a source of problems.
First you need to decide on the volume. The following principle applies here: the bigger it is, the easier it is to take care of it. This is due to the fact that in a large aquarium it is much easier to establish and maintain a biological balance, which is the key to a clean aquarium. So, if you give pets more food than they eat, the rest of it will begin to decompose, and the water will become cloudy very quickly.
Starting an aquarium (step-by-step instructions for this process will be described below) is a rather complicated manipulation, and before you start it, decide on its location. At the same time, it is necessary to avoid direct sunlight on it. It is also forbidden to install the aquarium in a draft or on a windowsill. The most correct option would be to place it in the corner farthest from your window, which will ensure a quick start of the aquarium, whose step-by-step instructions describe this feature.
An important factor is the pedestal. Now there is a huge assortment of these interior items designed specifically for the aquarium. It can be made to order and even independently, while correctly calculating the strength of the structure. The height of the pedestal together with the aquarium should not exceed 120-130 cm, otherwise the maintenance of the aquarium, or rather its cleaning, may cause certain difficulties associated with access to it.
Any proper launch of the aquarium involves a pre-thought-out sequence of actions. Having decided on the volume, location, stand, you need to think about the equipment necessary for your artificial ecosystem. In this case, everything depends on the capabilities of the breeder, since there are a huge number of models on the market at different prices, from different manufacturers. Recall only that the essential attributes of any aquarium are a filter, pump, heater. This is the very minimum without which the existence of fish is impossible.
Preparing an aquarium for launch is a rather complicated process that needs to be paid special attention to before putting it on the installation site. Before pouring water into it, wash all the windows clean from the inside and outside. To do this, you can use a solution of baking soda, as well as a slightly pink solution of potassium permanganate.
Now you can start running the aquarium. The step-by-step instructions for this process have many points and can change in each case. Therefore, we will consider only some of the main points.
1. After installing the washed aquarium on the bedside table, inspect it again for the absence of cracks and deep scratches.
2. Lay the washed and calcined soil on the bottom.
3. Plant the plants and fasten them.
4. Then gradually, in a small trickle, pour water over the wall of the aquarium.
So the aquarium should stand for a week. Only after that you can start the fish. As you can see by reading this article, starting an aquarium, the step-by-step instructions of which are described above, is not such a complicated process as it seems at first glance.
