Marine aquariums are not easily maintained and cared for as are the freshwater tanks and you will need experience as well as inclination in order to take on the task. There are specific gadgets and requirements that are simply must-haves in order to maintain a marine aquarium and its residents in good health.
Requirements for a Healthy Marine Aquarium
A marine aquarium usually hosts marine (salt water) fish, which need a certain type of environment in order to survive; some of those requirements include a Nano reef with UV sterilizer if possible, sand and cured live rock.
Constantly check on water parameters as they change faster in a Nano aquarium and always clean the tank regularly. It is recommended cleaning the tank at least once a month but, depending on its size you may choose to clean it more often than that.
Good filtration is a must as there are a number of deposits in marine water, which can affect the health of your fish. There are many types of filters available and here again you will have to make a choice depending on the size of your aquarium.
Plants specific to the salt-water environment are also available and that will create the right environment for your fish as well as maintain the water clean and healthy. Plants under the water work the similar way they work above the water by cleaning the air.
Lighting is yet another important factor for any aquarium and along with the light you can invest in a device that maintains the right temperature of the water at all times.
