Wall mounted aquarium (aquarium picture) – views and features

In small office spaces or in a small apartment room, a wall mounted aquarium will be a wonderful interior solution since it takes up little space. Most wall-mounted aquariums are framed with a frame made of metal, wood or plastic, so they are a bit like pictures, from here they got their second name aquarium picture.

In terms of safety, wall mounted aquariums cannot be large, as a rule, their total weight with water and decorations does not exceed 60-80 kg, and the width is not more than 15-18 cm.

Wall aquariums can be of two types:

Aquariums built into the wall are placed in a niche in the wall on which permission is usually required and such a niche is made in the process of repairing the room. Can not be installed in any wall.

Aquariums, paintings hung on the wall with a special fastener, usually have a smaller size, they can be hung only on the main wall.

The advantages of flat wall aquarium-paintings include compactness and originality. Their disadvantages are also associated with small sizes, namely: the difficulty of selecting fish, equipment, difficulty in planting plants and difficulties in cleaning such an aquarium.

Prices for this type of aquarium is also not the cheapest.

Due to the complexity of cleaning and caring for a wall-mounted flat aquarium, they are often equipped with all the necessary equipment from the factory: an automated water filtration system, provision of temperature control and feeding of fish, and all this with a control panel. This fully equipped automated aquarium is ideal for offices where there is no time to care for the inhabitants of the aquarium.

When installing a wall mounted aquarium, you need to take care of access to it from above for maintenance. If the aquarium is mounted, then there are no problems with this, but for an aquarium embedded in the wall this is a real engineering task.

The easiest way is to make the aquarium below the opening in the wall or thicker than the wall. It is also possible to form a niche with doors above the aquarium, through which there will be access to all equipment and residents of the wall aquarium.

Pictures in aquariums should contain sedentary fish of small size, preferably owners of a flattened body from the sides, all other parameters for the content are taken in the ratio as for a normal aquarium (volume and height). In the wall aquarium, the following types of fish will feel great: danios, guppies, angelfish, etc.

When keeping fish, it should be taken into account that the bottom area of ​​aquariums is small, therefore bottom fish will not feel comfortable in it, therefore, it is better not to colonize soma, goldfish and others living in the lower layers of water. From plants it is necessary to give preference to cryptocorins and Vallisneria.

Any wall mounted aquarium will look great if you install it at the level of the eyes of a standing person. The wall for built-in aquariums is better prepared during the repair process.

In addition to the niche in the wall, you can make a through opening, so you can view the aquarium from two rooms at once. In apartments, wall mounted aquariums can be placed not only in the living room, but also in the bedroom, so it will additionally serve as a nightlight or lamp, depending on the brightness of the lighting.

When choosing an installation site, remember the conditions necessary for all aquariums: avoid direct sunlight from windows, because in this light, the fish will look faded, and the aquarium will quickly become overgrown with green bloom and its aesthetics will disappear.

With proper selection of the installation site, decoration and live fish, you will get a stunning beautiful corner of wildlife on your wall or office room, which will help you to relax after a hard stressful day and will add extra comfort.
