Fish Tank Synthetic Coral

If you have fish as part of your family, then you know there’s far more to taking care of them than just filling a tank with water. If you’re a new fish owner, then you’ve come to the right place to get all the information and supplies you’ll need to make sure your fish are not only healthy and happy, but comfortable in their new habitat, as well. Decorating your fish tank is a very important part of fish maintenance. There are a lot of things to consider before you start decorating your fish tank. A properly designed fish tank will not only add a beautiful decorative piece to your home, but it will also ensure that your fish have proper coverage and are safe in their new home. Providing a well-decorated aquarium for your fish will make them feel as if they never left their natural home, and that is the best way to keep them healthy and happy.

It is typically recommended that you provide approximately 50-75% coverage (plant life or coral for your fish to swim under or through) for your fish in their tank. Synthetic coral is a great way to not only add to the aesthetics of your tank but to provide fantastic coverage for your fish. The synthetic coral available at Zen Pet Supplies is made from non-toxic polymer and is 100% safe for your fish. We also have a plethora of different sizes and colors to choose from. So, whether you have a 10-gallon aquarium or a 50-gallon one, you can be sure to find the right size and color for your fish’s home. Synthetic coral is also very easy to remove and clean. If you have a freshwater aquarium, you’ll find your fish will do a decent job of keeping the coral clean. If you have a saltwater aquarium, however, your tank decorations will get fairly dirty over time thanks to algae growth. To clean synthetic coral, simply remove the coral and give it a wash. Using a toothbrush can help to thoroughly clean all the nooks and crannies. Another helpful tip is to leave your synthetic coral outside in the sun for a day because the sunlight will cause the algae to fall right off.

Synthetic coral is not only beneficial for the coverage it provides and for being so easy to clean, but it’s also quite affordable and has numerous environmental benefits. In order to use live coral in your fish tank, the coral needs to be removed from its natural habitat. With coral reefs all over this planet already endangered, using a synthetic coral will help protect the natural reefs. Also, live coral is just that – a living thing. With synthetic coral, you get the same beautiful addition to your tank without having to worry about something else living in your tank and its interaction with your fish.
