 +Many people could make their first aquarium purchase on a whim, or suddenly be given a starter kit as a gift. When that happens, there'​s often not enough time or thought given to seven essential factors that will decide the long-term health of the ecology of the fish's habitat. If you find yourself in this scenario, or even when more rationally taking added time before making your first tank purchase, give the following points some serious consideration http://​vipaquario.ru/​.
  
 +I'm not even speaking about the inside fixtures of an aquarium, those will be dealt with in a future entry. No, before you even add the gravel or the first rock decoration, you need to carefully think about where and how the aquarium is situated.
 +
 +1) Location (location, location). Water is quite large, it weighs about 8 pounds per gallon, but considering all of the gravel and ornaments, I use ten pounds per gallon as my rule of thumb. Which implies that even the common ten gallon beginner'​s aquarium will weigh about 100 pounds. Most floors can take that relatively well, but when bigger tanks are considered, that load must always be placed on a supporting wall. So the first concern when setting any tank is that the floor will be well able to support the weight. It only makes sense that that much weight be placed on a supporting wall, preferably on the inside of the construction so as several other variables can be kept in check as possible http://​vipaquario.ru/​.
 +
 +There are a couple other scarcely talked about variables to also consider in first location.
 +
 +The first; the amount of general traffic around the tank makes a difference for all concerned, fish and audiences alike. If an aquarium is in a high traffic area, the fish will be continuously subjected to tons of sound and visual movement, making them a bit less natural and maybe bashful. The right choice of location is optimized by positioning where there'​s less traffic and motion as well as a comfy place for viewing. This setup will allow the audience to appreciate the living image uninterrupted for a relaxing period away from the hustle and bustle of the real world. Dearth of outside distractions and action will also let the fish to focus on their habitat and act much more naturally.
 +
 +The second is an outgrowth of the weight of plain water. If an aquarium is placed in the centre of the flooring that is not strongly supported in a heavily trafficked area, the task throughout the aquarium will often cause the floor to vibrate and proceed, creating steady additional movement within the aquarium and causing undue long term stress for the fish and other inhabitants. The simplest method to avoid that is to ensure the tank is set close to a supporting wall
 +
 +2) Proper Support. So frequently, people decide that a bit of furniture they possess is acceptable to support an aquarium. This uninformed decision regularly sets the stage for a disaster later. There is a genuine reason why many fish tanks are sold with the express warranty rider the aquarium must be supported on a properly manufactured aquarium stand. This is not merely a ploy to sell an extra accessory, but actually an important safeguard for the aquarium. That solid wood table you're intending to place the fish tank on is generally the reason for a sudden, catastrophic failure. Any strong apparently level surface simply will not do!
 +
 +You need a stand that'​ll correctly support the weight, and not suffer from the strain of so much weight on such a localized surface area. Right support for an aquarium actually is not a flat surface under the entire surface area of the aquarium. Solid wood or not, the weight will gradually warp slightly, and in case you unexpectedly drip water on the area, that warping and swelling happens even more frequently. The effect of a suddenly uneven support placing stress on the glass box is most often a stress crack. It just takes a minuscule shifting of the contact on the side glass panes and base to cause a break and leaking. Don't take the chance of a broken aquarium from a shifting support not made particularly for your aquarium that isn't able to take the weight over the long term [[http://​www.articlescategory.com/​business/​advantages-freshwater-aquarium-effective-home-aquarium/​|Get More Info]].
