Choosing your substrate: Substrate can help add to the overall biological filtration and take some of the load off your filter. When choosing your substrate, it is really up to you what you want. You could choose sand, rocks, gravel, river stones or even no substrate at all. The only time it really matters is when you have bottom dwelling fish that require a specific type of substrate. For instance if you want catfish you need a smooth substrate like small round pebbles so it doesnt irritate their skin as they rub across it. If you are growing high maintenance plants you may want to consider an aquatic soil or clay. This can cloud up the water for a few weeks but will eventually go away and your plants will love it. Regardless of the type of substrate, it is recommended you use 1-2 pounds, or roughly 2 inches of substrate to cover the bottom of your aquarium.
If you manage a zoo, marine exhibit, or animal sanctuary, you know that the safety of your animals is of the utmost importance. Purchasing and maintaining the proper zoo and Aquatic Aquarium Equipment can keep your wildlife healthy while keeping your business or nonprofit compliant with strict regulations. Many suppliers provide specialized equipment, from filters capable of processing many gallons of water to secure fencing safe for large mammals.
