3 Neat Things To Add To Your Fish Tank


Did you just purchase a fish tank and a few fish to swim around inside of it? Because you are going to have a fish tank inside your home, you may want to add extra things to the tank to make it look visually appealing. You can easily make your tank look even better by adding just a few things to it.

Ricordea Corals

If you feel like your fish tank is missing that pop of color that brings excitement to the tank and gets people more interested in wanting to look at the fish inside of it, you can always buy ricordea corals and add them to the bottom of the tank. These corals are available in different colors and many of them are tri-colored with shades of blue, orange, and pink. While they look great inside any fish tank, it is important that you know how to properly care for them. You can feed them some plankton from time to time and you should change the percentage of the water at least once a month. Some people like to change the water twice a month to ensure that the ricordea are flourishing inside the tank.

Fluorescent Gravel

Add even more color to your fish tank by spreading fluorescent gravel on the bottom of it. The gravel is easy to find, affordable, and available in a lot of neon colors, including pink, green, blue and orange. You can stick with one color or use a blend of several different colors to create a pattern that truly catches the eye and makes your fish tank look even better from the outside. Aside from adding something extra to your fish tank, the gravel is good to have because it is home to the good bacteria that keeps the fish healthy.

Decorative Cave

Some fish like to hide out when resting. Adding at least one decorative miniature cave to your fish tank is a great way to provide the fish in your tank with the option of hiding out as often as they would like. Plenty of different types of caves are available, including smaller and larger options. Choose one that is spacious enough for the specific types of fish you purchased.

Now that you have a fish tank and plenty of fish that are going to swim around inside of it each day, consider adding ricordea, fluorescent gravel, and a decorative cave to the bottom of it. These extras are not expensive and will quickly make the inside of the tank look even better.
