Aquarium equipment & accessories in the Maxi Zoo online shop
For your aquarium: this is what is recommended
When you have fish in an aquarium, equipment is of fundamental importance. An underwater world designed to be as appropriate and authentic as possible makes the fish feel good in their homes. At Maxi Zoo you can buy what you need for your aquarium online.
Tips for your aquarium: The right interior design make all the difference
The basis of each aquarium is an approximately five to ten centimetre thick layer of aquarium gravel or quartz sand. What material you ultimately fill into the aquarium depends on which fish you want to live there. With Maxi Zoo you get different types of bases – even in different colours.
Various technical equipment is required to ensure that the water quality is consistently high. For example, an internal filter is required that circulates the aquarium water permanently and removes bacteria and excretion. For a larger aquarium with a capacity of more than 100 litres, an external filter should also be installed. Sponges developed specifically for this purpose make cleaning the filters considerably easier. Water plants also improve the quality of the aquarium water. For this reason, you should not refrain from planting if you put together the equipment for your aquarium yourself. Tip: When you add a layer of fertiliser or substrate under the floor, you promote the growth of the plants in your aquarium.
It is also important to keep the temperature of the aquarium water constant at all times because fish and even aquatic plants prefer a certain temperature range, which is usually around 25 degrees Celsius. Special heating elements for aquariums ensure that the water temperature is maintained at this level.
A flow pump is another useful feature for your aquarium. It causes a gentle flow in the aquarium and simulates an authentic habitat for your fish and water plants.
How to visually display your aquarium
Now all that’s missing are the decorative elements: by equipping your aquarium with small boulders, stone caves, parts of tree trunks, slate slabs, roots and other natural elements, you ensure that the fish feel completely comfortable and have opportunities to withdraw. In addition, the filters can be concealed unobtrusively. But these components also make your aquarium a real eye-catcher. A back wall film with an attractive photo motif visually enhances your aquarium.
If you want to buy the equipment for your aquarium, you’re in the right place at Maxi Zoo. Here you will find different decorative elements for your small underwater world in addition to technical equipment.
