Aquariums

What style should I give to the aquarium? Discover 6 trends in modern aquaristics.

Thanks to the fact that aquaristics is developing, aquarists now have many different types and styles to choose from for aquariums both large and small. Discover 6 ways to make unique compositions:

1. Plant aquariums – a revolution in aquaristics

This style has caused quite a revolution in aquaristics. Why? Until now, when it came to aquariums, fish were always of prime importance. But in plant tanks, they have become merely an element that complements their beauty. The composition is all about creating beautiful underwater gardens using various species of plants.

2. Natural aquariums – the beauty of nature

A completely different but equally beautiful and demanding trend in aquaristics are natural aquariums. The starting point is a realistic recreation of sceneries that occur in nature. How to do that? The first thing is to select the right decoration. For this purpose, stones, roots, and pieces of wood are used. They’re combined into small ‘aquascapes’.

3. Biotope aquariums – care for a species

The trend of biotope aquariums has been particularly popular among people who are fond of specific fish species. The main assumption is to recreate, as faithfully as possible, the conditions of a specific body of water. This requires a broad knowledge of the individual parameters that occur in a particular biotope.

4. Marine aquariums – underwater reefs

Imitating the marine world continues to be a popular aquaristic style. Being able to admire a fabulously colorful reef at home makes this style the choice of many aquarists. An unquestionable advantage of a marine aquarium design is the possibility of keeping many marine fish species, which are often distinguished by their strong, vivid colors – unlike their freshwater sisters.

5. Nano aquaristics – a miniature world

Creating underwater compositions in small aquariums is one of the trends that has quickly gained popularity. It meets the needs of an aquarist who’s looking for an economical and (despite its small size) attractive way to set up an aquarium. Some of the most common inhabitants of such tanks include small fish and freshwater shrimp in a variety of colors.

6. Wabi-Kusa – original decoration for the house

This style is not used only for aquariums, but surely is an original form for them to take. The making of interesting plant compositions in glass vessels still has its fans. All you need for Wabi-Kusa is to choose the right substrate, plants, and additions. Since it’s relatively easy to maintain, it has become a fashionable, modern way of decorating interiors.
