Nano aquarium: small pelvis with great effect
The nano aquarium is becoming increasingly popular. With good reason: it fits into any home and can be filed with beautiful and interesting aquatic creatures. With a nano aquarium, you can fulfil your dream of having your own tiny underwater world. In addition, a mini aquarium such as this is an aesthetic eye-catcher in the home or office.
What is a nano aquarium?
A nano aquarium is a small aquarium with a low capacity of between 10 and 60 litres. The term “nano” comes from the ancient Greek word “nannos” and the Latin term “nanus”, meaning “dwarf”. The nano aquarium, also known as a mini aquarium or nano cube, is the dwarf among the aquariums and can be filled with fascinating invertebrates such as prawns. The small tanks are available as a nano aquarium complete set in various sizes. The smallest model is the nano cube with a volume of 10 litres. It is suitable as a pure plant aquarium or – under certain conditions – for prawn farming. A nano aquarium set can be quickly set up and can be transformed into a beautiful and cost-effective underwater world in just a few simple steps and the right decoration such as plants and gravel.
Which animals can find a home in a nano aquarium?
Before you buy a nano tank, it is recommended to research which animals can be considered. Due to its small size, the system is less stable in a nano aquarium than in larger tanks and is therefore not suitable for classic fish. A mini aquarium for prawns, crabs or water snails should also only be occupied by a certain number of animals.
What are the advantages of keeping prawns in a nano aquarium?
Keeping prawns is relatively easy. In comparison, the metabolism of fish causes more waste products that impair the water quality, so that more frequent water controls and cleaning are necessary with fish stocking. With prawns, the effort is comparatively lower. In any case, only invertebrate animals can be used as stock for tanks under a capacity of 60 litres. In the Maxi Zoo online shop, you will find a large selection of nano aquariums and nano cubes from renowned producers such as Juwel as matching accessories.
