Nano-aquarium – arrangement, launch, maintenance

Fashionable now the prefix “nano” is now used in aquarism. And not just used, but also gave development to a whole direction – nano-aquarism.

What hides under the popular term nano-aquarium? First of all, a miniature capacity, the maximum volume of which is 30 liters, but mostly it is aquariums of much smaller sizes. Nano-aquariums are predominantly cubic in shape and this is their fundamental difference from ordinary aquariums, models of which are sometimes simply absurd and absolutely unsuitable for normal life of fish.

In various balls or glasses, which novice aquarists take for an aquarium, it is impossible to create a favorable and natural environment for the inhabitants of the aquarium, besides the review in such models is very difficult.

Nano aquarium – it is a full-fledged reservoir in miniature, allowing to use all the necessary equipment and create favorable living conditions for all its inhabitants and plants. With proper care, the biosystem of the nano-aquarium can function for a long time, without requiring intervention.

Another significant difference between a nano-pond and a classic aquarium is at the same time a big plus – compactness. Small sizes make it very easy to choose a place to install.

A desk, a small nightstand, a kitchen shelf – there are a lot of options and they are not limited by the difficulties that cause cumbersome versions of aquariums. The only requirement for placement is the presence of a power outlet nearby, because the nano-aquarium requires different equipment.


Three differently designed aquarium fit on just one window sill. .

Nano-reservoir to maintain life in it must be illuminated. These can be either special models with built-in lamps or ordinary household lights.

You can maintain the required temperature in a nano-aquarium with a thermocoat or an aquarium heater. Both that, and another in various variations is present in a line of many manufacturers.

If you have a certain aquarium experience, you can do without a filter that live plants can replace. But such an approach requires some knowledge and frequent intervention in the underwater world to “weed” plants.


Arrangement and launch of a nano-aquarium

Therefore, at the initial stage, it is better to acquire a special filter designed for a nano-aquarium. Airlift filters are very good, besides the prices for them are the most affordable. But there is one drawback – such filters are not suitable for an aquarium located in the bedroom because of the noise they make.

There are absolutely silent models, the size of which is not more than a pack of cigarettes. Such a filter can be easily disguised even in the smallest nano-aquarium.

Zooindustry follows fashion trends in the aquarium and therefore in pet stores you can find all the necessary equipment for a nano-aquarium: tiny tweezers, nets, scrapers.

There is even more choice of decorative accessories: backdrops, both flat and voluminous, snags natural or from artificial materials, stones, special ground. The richness of choice allows you to create absolutely any nano-landscape.


Stages of creating a miniature underwater landscape

With the right approach, a nano-aquarium can become a full-fledged reservoir for many species of fish. In the mini-aquarium it is comfortable labyrinth, small carp and characteristic fish, some species of viviparous, fledgling fish and catfish.


Do not forget selecting tenants for mini aquariums about their size.

But the most popular inhabitants of the nano-aquarium are freshwater shrimps of various species and colors.


Different types of moss are very common in the interior design of a nano-aquarium.

With the plant world for a nano-aquarium, there are no difficulties at all. Due to the small size and, accordingly, a large amount of light and well-warmed water, many plants, “capricious” in a normal aquarium, grow much better in a nano-pond.

Ease of care and small size nano aquarium makes it accessible to all who wish to enjoy the leisurely harmony of life of its inhabitants.


Each of these aquacubic lives its own life.
