In today’s times when everyone leads an immensely hectic life, everyone wants a low-maintenance pet that doesn’t require much effort, and a fish or an aquarium is the perfect fit for such people. An aquarium is a great addition to any home and provides it with a certain type of calm and vibe. Almost 80 per cent of the population in India itself owns an aquarium. They are available in different sizes, depending upon the space they are meant to be set at. Often aquariums are adorned by a variety of aquarium decoration stones. However, one cannot simply put any stone in an aquarium as it can release toxins and harm the fishes and aquatic flora present.
What’s safe and what’s not
When it comes to fishes and their habitat,one has to be as cautious as they would be with any other house pet. While shopping for decorations and aquatic plants, it must be kept in mind that only the plants and aquarium decoration stones that are guaranteed to be fish-friendly and have proper certification are purchased and released in an aquarium, since doing otherwise can result in fishes dying and an aquarium becoming a graveyard for marine life.
Many assume that possessing an aquarium is immensely easy and requires absolutely no effort. This is partially true, while owning an aquarium is quite cheap, it does require effort in order to be properly maintained and the fishes need to be looked after thoroughly. An aquarium isn’t merely a showpiece but rather a living and thriving habitat to wildlife species and any owner must understand the responsibility before deciding to buy one.
