Marine fish for your mini aquarium
Marine fish — a real decoration for any aquarium, be it flocks of small fish or a big triggerfish. Coral fish known for their bright, contrasting and saturated color and does not leave indifferent neither one man.
In addition to compatibility and aggressiveness in a small space, consider the size of the fish in adulthood, her lifestyle and mobility. For example, the clown ocellaris. not the best swimmer, fit for aquarium of 100 liters. Note that, landing a fish in a small aquarium, in which it is extremely difficult to provide effective filtering, it is necessary every day to feed your inhabitants, respectively the growth of filamentous and brown algae is almost assured. Here is an example I had an aquarium, which grew only corals. the sand was white, clean pebbles, but as soon as a fish, the appearance and stability of the aquarium was shattered with all the ensuing consequences: the tedious weekly cleaning of glasses, overgrowth of cyanobacteria and of Wallonia. In addition, read foreign literature, forums, brochures Dennerle, where its nano-aquariums they recommend planting mostly shrimp and other small invertebrates.
Think carefully about the population of your small aquarium will be suitable for fish, not exceeding 4-5 cm in length and leading spokoynyy life. Can pay attention to the gobies of the genus Gobiodon, of course, excluding the large species and some sea dogs. I do not advise to put the clowns, pogonov, chromis, even these cute inhabitants will be a strong load on the entire system. So, go ahead.
Fish for large systems
In aquariums with a volume of 250-300 litres can ensure effective removal of organics, fish waste, using a good protein skimmer column (skimmer). In such a system you can feel free to bring in small clowns, a wrasse pajamas. apolonov (lace cardinal ), a shoal of chromis viridis. grams, Mandarin, dwarf angels (centropyge), halmoni .
Fish-surgeons, butterfly fish, triggerfish, angels should be planted in aquariums with a minimum length of one meter and a half. Just imagine rolling a 20-centimeter the surgeon in an aquarium with a length of 60-70 cm. Fish, reaching half a meter, such as an angel or Imperial sailing zebrasoma should be planted in aquariums from 800 liter.
Mention should be made of artreach, kuzovkova, scorpaenidae fish, some of which are poisonous, others are active predators, and others, and does feed on corals, so do not make spontaneous purchases, and the better from authoritative sources to learn more about your favorite fish.
