Distinctive features of aquariums by scope

Mixed aquariums. As a rule, in such aquariums amateurs lead several species of fish and a huge variety of aquarium plants.

Reeds, that is, they serve to raise young stock, which is transferred from a spawning aquarium;

Spawners. In such banks, aquarists create all the necessary conditions for the reproduction of a particular type of fish. Spawn aquariums tend to be smaller than decorative ones;

Quarantine or otsadniki. These banks contain fish that are only purchased and not placed in the general aquarium. Also in quarantine or otsadniki place the fish in quarantine or treatment for the disease;

Biotopes. In biotope aquariums, a small part of the environment is reproduced.

The only caveat – selection aquariums should be a lot.
