All about Nano Aquarium

Hi fish-keepers so today I’m going to talk about Nano aquariums. Beginners usually prefer bowls due to space and other issues but I would like to suggest opting for a Nano aquarium instaed.

Nano aquariums are fish tanks which are small in size let’s say up till 12 to 15 inches. A fish tank that is 37 liters. I usually suggest a Nano fish tank to hobbyists who do not have a lot of space for 2 feet or above tanks. I believe a Nano fish aquarium is best option against a bowl. A fish bowl does not allow an oxygenator, filter, thermostat or other important accessories suitable for fish. This results in mortality of fish or invites unwanted diseases. A Nano aquarium however can be well equipped. You can easily develop a perfect eco-system for the fish by adding artificial bacteria or putting the tank on standby til the eco system develops by itself.

A Nano fish aquarium can be set up in a lot of different scapes. A beautifully planted Nano aquarium inhabiting colorful tetras, guppy or shrimps can be a star attraction on your study table or work table top. A small Nano reef or saltwater aquarium is becoming very popular these days. To buy fish tank online contact us on our website.

trim the plants, clean filter media and then refill the tank. If the Nano aquarium setup is a saltwater setup then you need to first check water parameters like nitrate level, ammonia level, pH and other details.
