One of the most exciting hobbies to have is fish keeping. This tradition has existed for almost 4000 years, and people have been keeping fishes inside all kinds of aquariums, ranging from bowls to glass panels with metal frames, and many more. It would be even more exciting if you are experience fish keeper, and you now have very expensive and beautiful marine fishes that can only survive in your maintenance and no one else’s.
Common Difference From Others
Marine fish keeping would relatively be very good if you have an oceanic fish tank, and not just a common fish tank like others. What is so different about this type of fish tank, some may ask. One simple thing is the shape. Shape here does not physically talk about how the oceanic fish tank looks like only, but also regards to the size, the built, the base, and so on.
In many cases, oceanic fish tanks require a special corner in your house, unlike other common fish tanks. This is because an oceanic fish tank would definitely be bigger than common ones, and it can not be simply placed anywhere you think it should be, for it would render the whole place to look odd.
On the other hand, an oceanic fish tank is not so different from a common one in shape. Just like a common one, this type of fish tank is common found in pentagonal, rectangular, trapezoidal, and many other shapes. Of the many, the rectangular one is the most common. And rectangular here does not just refer to the common ones we can see in normal small fish stores. Generally an oceanic fish tank has to be really wide and long, and not tall and long, like the others. The main reason why this is so because the wider and longer it is, more surface space is provided for the fish to exchange oxygen. And besides, inside an oceanic fish tank you are not going to keep miniature or small fishes, but instead you are going to keep huge ones anyway.
Usually an oceanic fish tank is about the size of a 75 or 100 gallon fish tank. And most of the times, they are made of expensive glass rather than acrylic. This is because acrylic has one great drawback; to turn yellow in the passing of time. And when it comes to marine fish keeping, salty waters would be an issue, and this would not affect anything on the glass oceanic fish tank.
