Important Aquarium and Aquarium Supply Terms

In many ways, fish and other marine life make the ideal pets. They are easy to look after, relatively clean and they make very little noise. If these factors sound appealing to you, then you may be in the market for an aquarium. Although the fish themselves are somewhat low maintenance, aquariums and tanks require very delicate chemical balances to create the ideal habitat for your pet. Factors like Ph and salinity can vary greatly and will need to be monitored to make sure that your pet fish survives. Certain environmental stimuli like light and pressure on the glass can have an adverse affect on the aquarium habitat as well. In addition to these concerns, there are aesthetic matters to attend to. With such a wide supply of tank decor in supply, including faux algae, ship wrecks and reefs, it can be difficult to design your fish's home. Consider these five important terms before you set out to create a tropical paradise for your new under water companion.

  • Ph - Percentage of hydrogen ions. This is an important measure of the water's acidity in your fish tank.
  • Salinity - A measure of how much NaCl salt is dissolved in your water. Some fish need a high salt environment to survive. Others thrive in fresh water.
  • Aquarium Marbles - Round or oval marbles made out of glass or plastic that sink to the bottom of a fish tank and simulate colorful rocks on a tropical sea floor.
  • UV Sterilizer - Item that uses light to sterilize the water in the tank. This light removes algae, parasites, and bacterial diseases that are a nuisance to any aquarium.

    Aquarium supplies include tanks, lights, cleaning chemicals, and even the animals that live in them. Stores that sell aquarium equipment offer products in different sizes, so customers are able to choose what fits their tank the best. Plants, filters, gravel, and food are available for different types of fish, turtles, lizards, and other pets. To find a specific product, it's encouraged to visit a store or browse its website to see what they have in stock. Speaking with an employee lets customers find out when the next delivery is expected to take place that has the product they need. Fresh water fish, tropical fish, and salt water fish all require different levels of care. Having the water at a certain temperature often requires installing a lamp on the aquarium's top. Reptiles have lamps, as well as heated rocks inside the tank that they can lounge on. If a family is looking to buy a pet mouse, lizard, turtle, or snake, it's extremely important to know what type of care they require and if the family is willing to give them what they need. Tanks come in various gallons, so the animal is able to have enough space to move around and stay healthy. Aquarium stores sell cleaning supplies that are safe to use around the animal, while cleaning the glass. The type of fresh water, salt water, or tropical fish found in an aquarium store can change from time to time. Some stores can order a specific type of fish or reptile the customer is having trouble finding in stores. Visiting the store periodically is the best way to see what new products and animals they have.
