Fish Tank, Add A Natural Touch To Your Fish Tank

Fish tanks are used to decorate many households. In many Asian countries, keeping live fish at home is supposed to bring good luck to the household. Whatever the reason for keeping a fish tank at home you cannot deny the fact that, colorful fish in bubbling water add a fresh and serene touch to the home. In the above video we show you how special water plants can be used to decorate your fish tank. While certain plants in the fish tank are placed only to add beauty, other plants can actually be eaten by the fish too. Many water plants can live with their roots parked in small pebbles and stones. So all you need to do is put a small layer of pebbles at the bottom of the fish tank and place the plants on this layer. Make sure that you wash the plants clean before placing them in the fish tank. This will help to clean up any insect eggs that might cling on to the leaves of the plants. Many fish tanks are decorated with plastic plants that closely resemble natural plants. Nothing wrong with this but for nature lovers, nothing can substitute the lush green look of natural plants. If your fish tank is full of very tiny fish, stiff plants packed densely can cause a fish to get caught within the plant stems. Keep this in mind when choosing the plants for your fish tank.
