Cover for aquarium

Cover for aquarium necessary in order to:

First of all, prevent some from jumping out and creeping out aquarium fish, for example, representatives of the serpent and clariaev families can behave this way;
Secondly, protect the “inner world” aquarium from dust and dirt from the outside, also the lid serves as a barrier for pets and children.
third, lighting devices are usually placed on the lid.

Sometimes in the lid itself there are connectors for connecting other necessary electrical equipment. However, this placement of the “tee” is not the best option, it is better to exclude the slightest possibility of contact with water and place it outside the aquarium.

Specialized stores also offer aquarium with a stand and a lid. In such covers there is a window for access to the aquarium. When choosing such a kit, it is necessary to ensure that the window handle is of a suitable size and shape (the handle should not slip out of wet fingers).

To collect condensate in the lid must be built-in plastic pallets or cover glasses. This is necessary in order to minimize the evaporation of water, besides the air at the surface of the water will be warm. This is especially important when keeping fish that breathe atmospheric air, such as gourami.

If cold air is inhaled, such fish may catch a cold. Pallets and cover glasses must provide free access to the inside of the aquarium, otherwise you will need to remove the cover every time you feed fish or water changes.

Aquarium cover, as can be seen from the above, is a rather complicated device. Therefore, it is not surprising that often the cover for a small aquarium is an order of magnitude larger than its glass part.

You should not save on the lid, because its poor-quality performance can cause various inconveniences and disappointments: from aesthetic disharmony to fire and injury. The aquarium should be closed even when the use of the cover is not possible due to lighting.

In this case, cover glasses are used, which also prevent the ingress of dirt into the aquarium and keep the inhabitants in the aquarium.
