The Proper Fish Food Diet Based On Species

There are numerous fish foods available which makes it difficult to know which food is right for your fish. Fish have different diets based on their species so it's important to know what category your fish is in:

Herbivore - plant eater
Carnivore - meat eater
Omnivore - consumer of both plants and
meaty foods... the vast majority of aquarium
fish fit into this category

"Many of the staple diets do a very good job of providing a broad range of essential nutrients required for good health. But, we believe that variety in the diet is important to good nutrition and the well-being of your fish. Offering a variety of foods, in addition to the "staple" diet, ensures better nutrition and enriches the diet of your fish with more tastes and textures." -

20/20 Aquarium Background Mounting Solution

Seals, Adheres & Enhances Your Background!
Our 20/20 Aquarium Background Mounting Solution, when applied to the printed side of your aquarium background and attached to the back of your tank, aides in a secure adhesion, seals out air bubbles and actually enhances the background image!

The results are dramatic! Our special safe, oil based liquid creates a light enhancing contrast and color dynamic that will make your background "pop" and look many times more detailed, clear and professional. The final touch for a true and perfect aquarium theme!

An Undeniable Difference offers the highest quality, most professional aquarium background designs and products. Depending upon your tank, the magnificent graphics we provide will be viewed through two plates of glass and a bunch of water. Our 20/20 Aquarium Background Mounting Solution allows your already amazing background to look absolutely awesome!

Any aquarium background, when attached to the back of your tank will have air caught between the vinyl graphic and the glass. It is simply physics. Our 20/20 Aquarium Background Mounting Solution fills that gap and essentially makes the background and the glass merge with an air-tight seal.

Our safe, oil based solution causes our backgrounds to adhere to the glass on the back of your tank securely. You simply apply our solution to the image side of your background graphic, press it to the back of your aquarium glass and squeegee (using a credit card or similar item) the graphic to the glass forming a perfect but easily removable seal.

Using our 20/20 Solution
Trim your background and lay it face up (eg. Image up) on a flat surface. Apply the 20/20 solution liberally upon the image and spread it out with your hands.  Lightly wipe off any excess then place your background on the back of your tank with the image facing the front of your tank. Use a credit card or towel to smooth out the background and wipe off any excess solution. Finally...tape your background in place around all four sides...completely.

Our 20/20 solution is offered during checkout when purchasing an aquarium background.

The Best Fish Tank Size For Me

There are so many things to consider when you're looking to add a fish tank to your home. One of the most important things to think about is how large of a fish tank would be best for you and your family. However, before you can decide on a size, you have to pick a spot in your home to put your tank.

Having your fish tank in your living space, where you spend most of your time, is a great idea. This gives you more opportunity to enjoy your aquarium and ensures you'll be more inclined to maintain it efficiently. You should also place your tank somewhere there are available outlets and a water source.

Once you find the perfect spot for your fish tank, you can think about choosing a size that fits. Here are some suggestions:

• If you're going to have small, schooling fish, then a tank 30 gallons or less would be a good choice.

• Fancy goldfish can get quite large and need plenty of room, so consider a tank 30 gallons or larger.

• A tank that's meant to be a family hobby should be about 30-50 gallons. This size isn't too much to maintain but still provides space for a decent amount of fish.

• Larger, tropical fish (piranhas, sharks, or cichlids, for example) need a tank at least 40 gallons since they can grow to a bigger size.

• If you're going to fill your tank with a variety of animals, such as catfish, amphibians, and eels, a tank in the 55 gallon range ensures space for all species to claim their own territory.

• A tank that's 70 gallons or larger needs to be in a space that can sustain it's weight. Water weighs 3.78 pounds per gallon, and your tank adds even more weight, so make sure you have efficient floor structure to support it.

In addition to location and size of your tank, the shape you choose is important as well. If you're interested in a tall tank, remember that you will have to be able to reach the bottom to clean it. A bow front aquarium is a beautiful, stylish choice.

Fish bowls are required for Betta Fish, but should be avoided for other fish due to lack of space and aeration (the process by which air is circulated through, mixed with or dissolved in a liquid or substance).

No matter what size, shape, or location you choose for your aquarium, a background from Deep Blue Themes is sure to make it look beautiful! We offer hundreds of designs and even offer custom backgrounds for ANY SIZE aquarium. Visit us today to turn your aquarium into the centerpiece of your home!
