Colourful fish for tropical tank

How to Decorate the Perfect Fish Tank

  1. When decorating a fish tank, you want to know what kind of fish you are planning on having first. This will help you decorate your tank in a way that accents the fishes color.


  2. Pick your gravel.
    • For a brightly colored fish, you might want to go with a more dull color of gravel, such as blue, brown or natural color. This will make the fish stand out and make their color stand out. For a "fairy-tale" kind of fish tank, colourful and fine gravel should be used. For a realistic and natural fish tank, it is a good idea to combine the use of pebbles and dark coloured gravel, and, although it is cheap, please, try not to settle for ceramic sand, as they could damage the fish's mouth if they like to scavenge for their food.
    • For a dull fish, colors like yellow or light pink are a good choice. The make the fish stand out more and prevent them from blending in with the background.
  3. Learn about the fish. To help the fish be happier, it is a good idea to look up things about the fish before you get it so that it is happier to live in your tank. Different fishes come from different areas around the world. To suit your fish, make sure your decorations are appropriate to ensure that the tank looks natural and realistic.
    • For shy fish, or ones that live in rocky areas, it is a good idea to put caves and rock hideouts in the tank. Plants can be creatively positioned near caves and rock hideouts to enhance the area.
  4. A quick and creative way to create a cave that is good for all fish, is to take a clay pot, like one you would buy at a gardening store, and cut it half. When laid cut side down, this will create a nice cave for your fish.
    • If you have a shoaling fish, like guppies, mosquito fish, and tetras, you should make a nice open area for them to swim in, as well as Java fern, and other big plants, for them to play in.
  5. Get your rocks from a pet store. They will be cleaner there. Rocks are always a good idea when bought from a pet store, as long as they don't have any sharp edges to hurt your fish. Please do not pick rocks you find on the road or in your garage, as they might alter the chemicals in your tank. Not all rocks are suitable for fish tanks.
  6. Finished.
  • Make sure the tank is safe.
  • Put a filter in the fish tank.
  • Do research.
  • Put fish together that are compatible.
