Contemporary aquarium systems allow the maintenance of this exotic to be reduced to merely supervising the control of its functioning. The choice of aquarium depends most on the type of its inhabitants – freshwater fishes, or saltwater fishes. The most beautiful and uniquely shaped fishes are marine inhabitants, but the maintenance of a saltwater aquarium is more difficult, since salt has a corrosion effect on the aquarium equipment. These aquariums more intensive cleaning and care for maintaining the general outlook of the aquarium, a freshwater aquarium is easier to maintain and can encompass just as many types of colourful and beautiful fishes.

The appropriate placement of the aquarium shouldn’t be disregarded, its place is in the corner of the room, which happens to be the darkest part of the place. That’s why the aquarium should be well lit. Lighting in the aquarium is not merely a necessity, but also a way to give it an unusual enchanting beauty. It can become an accent in the room’s furnishing by creating a whole nature crib around it.
