Tips for Fish Tank Supplies in NZ
Whether you are a first-time fish tank owner or you are an aquarium aficionado, there are specific details that you should always consider before finalising your purchase of aquarium supplies in Auckland. Here are a few examples:
- Measure twice, buy once: Before you buy a fish tank, it’s vital that you not only decide the size tank you want but that it will fit in a specific location. We always recommend that you measure the area so that you have a clear guideline of the type of tanks you should consider.
- Freshwater vs saltwater: Freshwater fish and saltwater fish require different types of accessories. For example, a saltwater tank will require that you buy saltwater mix and a testing kit to ensure that the chemicals in your tank are at the ideal levels for your fish.
- Invest in trusted names: To ensure that your fish remain healthy, you should always purchase cleaning and maintenance products from well-known brands. Leading companies for these types of products include API and Seachem.
A Short Buyer’s Guide for Aquarium Decorations in NZ
There are necessary items that you need to buy to ensure that your fish are happy and healthy in their new home. When shopping for decorations, consider the following:
Gravel is essential:
- Consider fun ornaments: Fish love swimming in and out of different ornaments in their fish tank. Placing objects such as these in your tank also allows it to be more aesthetically pleasing. We carry unique, non-toxic decorations that are ideal for fresh- or saltwater fish. Our Kazoo line of merchandise is hand-painted and add your personal style to the tank. Why not scan through our full selection of ornaments?
Many novice fish tank owners are under the mistaken impression that gravel is used only for decoration. The reality is that gravel plays a critical role in the health of your tank. For the container to thrive, a certain amount of bacteria must be present. The gravel provides a place for this matter to develop. Our gravel choices come in a variety of colours including rainbow, blue, purple and red.
Including plants in your aquarium is an excellent way to give your tank an "under the sea” appearance. Keep in mind that you should only use plants that are sold explicitly for aquariums to avoid making your fish sick.
