How to Make Aquarium Décor and Accessories

There are so many accessories necessary in enhancing the natural look and aesthetic appeal of your aquarium. However, all these items come at a high price which limits the number that can be bought by someone who is operating on a tight budget. Now, instead of going around each pet shop looking for reasonable prices why not make the decorations at home? Here is how:

  • Colors and images: You can create backdrops that have bright colors and images that show through the tank. The images should depict a natural environment.
  • Rocks: You should be careful with the types of rocks that you collect because those with sharp edges can easily harm your fish. You can opt to have one large and smooth rock which will serve as a hiding place for the fish or simply create a pile of small stones. Most, importantly, remember to sanitize them before adding them to the tank.
  • Toys: These ones can easily be found in your child’s toy box. Just to be sure to decontaminate them and avoid those that can rust or peel off; you will create an interesting look with them and your fish will live playing around them.

With some bit of creativity, you can decorate your aquarium with homemade accessories.
