a1.PNGAn aquarium is a tank used to hold animals, fish, and plants that naturally live in the water. It has to have at least one transparent side. The glass that makes the aquariums should be of high strength to hold the water intact in the tank. Most cities have big aquariums that house large fish such as dolphins and turtles and other sea animals. You can also have a medium or small size aquarium in your home. The standard size for home aquariums is a 1000L tank. This limit is due to the material commonly used to produce the containers. The strengthened glass is put together using the 100% silicon which eventually becomes the weak point of the tank. The price is determined by the material used to make the fish tank. Acrylic glass is reinforced meaning it can handle a massive amount of pressure. In this respect, the acrylic tank is relatively expensive. There is an option to have laminated glass that has the properties of the acrylic and glass. It is scratch resistant and also a modern material for fixing aquariums. Glass is the first material that was used to make an aquarium.

The plants will bring beauty to your tank making it more attractive to you and the fish. The fish will get a sense of safety where it will hide in the growing ‘bush.’ The fish’s waste products will also be used up by the plants making a good correlation between the aquatic plants and the fish. Some fish will not survive in a tank with no plants. Other fish species will not reproduce if they do not have the right environment.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquarium
