Retail Tails: Underwater Decor for Your Aquarium

One of the challenges of being a pet supplies retailer is helping your customer achieve their desire without allowing your own personal preferences to influence the process. There are as many ways to set up an aquarium as there are people trying. Some hobbyists like to try to set up a biotope style all natural tank for the fish they keep.

Aquarium Adventures: the Development of the Wet/Dry Filter

Once upon a time we only had access to rather primitive forms of filtration for the marine aquarium. Undergravel filters were usually the filter of choice. This required the use of crushed coral or dolomite for the substrate, since sand would be too fine to work with the undergravel filter. These filters were excellent biological filters and did a fairly good job at mechanical filtration.

FAQ’s: Covering the Basics of Aquarium Issues

Q. Why are my fish hanging around the top of the water in my aquarium?
A: This is usually a sign of low oxygen content in the water. You need to increase the surface agitation with better filters and/or more air stones in the water. If your aquarium filter has slowed down, it is time to clean it to increase the flow rate.
