Black quartz for aquarium

maintenance, care, compatibility

Quite a large number of aquarists do not want to use synthetic materials. In addition, some natural black soils for the aquarium are not quite suitable.

For example, basalt soil gives a grayish tint, which may not fit into the overall design. You can use granite, but knowledgeable people note that this rock gives impurities into the water and can be magnetised, which is not a very positive quality.

Shungite can have sharp edges, which is extremely dangerous for fish swimming along the bottom.

A great option for natural black soil for the aquarium is quartz. It is perfectly perceived by the inhabitants of the underwater fauna, does not increase the hardness of the water and is completely neutral to it.

Black quartz soil for an aquarium is a great alternative to sand, gravel or gravel, it has a smooth surface, which is a key factor in the safety of fish. In order to decontaminate the soil, before applying it is recommended to boil it for five minutes.

In addition, quartz is optimal for both fish and underwater plants that have the ability to develop normally, since their roots have unhindered access to oxygen.

Another advantage of black quartz soil is the fact that using it for the aquarium inhabitants creates an environment that is as close as possible to the real, that is, to the one in which they used to live.

Stone decorations are the perfect complement to your home aquascape. The main condition is that they should not change the chemical composition of water, which can affect the health of fish, plants and other animals. Stones for an aquarium help to create a natural biotope: African and South American freshwater fish are used to the rocky bottom.

A prerequisite for an aquarium stone is its smoothness, hardness and durable structure. Smooth and flat stones in an aquarium are necessary if cichlids live in it.

They serve as nests for future eggs.


What stones can I use? Answer: those that are characterized by a uniform structure and smooth color. Bright paint can wash off, dissolve in water or partially paint it.

Impurities and minerals contained in it are not suitable for the reservoir, where living creatures constantly live. A smooth, treated surface does not harm the fish.

If you do not specialize in geology, do not understand the rocks, then you have the opportunity to buy artificial stones for an aquarium in a pet store.

Stones purchased in specialized retail chains are often safe, suitable for any type of tank. But they are much more expensive, and the choice is not very large. Slate and tuff are most commonly found on the shelves, although not all types of slate are acceptable.

Before you start decorating the aquarium with stones, you need to know what their features are.
