Think Tanks

Surela

There’s more to a fish tank than filling a plastic bag with water, plunking a wide-eyed goldfish and a handful of challah crumbs inside, and hoping “Goldie” survives the week. Mr. Shlomo Gross of Aqua Creations, which builds custom fish tanks for homes, offices, lobbies, and businesses — in any size, shape, and dimension — offers lots of information about fish tanks and the fish that go in them

 Go Fish!

There are so many kinds of fish. What type is best for you? The first decision is saltwater vs. freshwater. Saltwater fish live in oceans and seas, while freshwater fish live in rivers and lakes.

Saltwater fish are often dramatic; their colors are showstoppers and their personalities are fascinating. Still, your home fish tank is an ocean like my kitchen is a wedding hall! To replicate the ocean environment saltwater fish need to thrive, the water needs to be the perfect temperature, salt combination, and chemical makeup. Saltwater tanks require a tremendous amount of effort to maintain properly.

Freshwater fish come from rivers and lakes. Many freshwater fish are just as beautiful as saltwater fish, and freshwater tanks are far easier to afford and maintain. Also, freshwater fish in tanks have babies. Most saltwater fish in captivity don’t.
