Upgrading your aquarium & equipment

Why settle for a plain, boring aquarium? Upgrade your tank and equipment to create an even more attractive display that everyone will love. Expert ideas and advice on how to make your aquarium even more interesting and beautiful.

How to upgrade your aquarium & equipment

1. Add colourful plants – Adding live plants to your aquarium adds natural beauty and provides shelter for fish and other creatures. Choose from a wide selection of vibrant aquatic species, such as java moss, hornwort, or An ubias.

2. Upgrade lighting – You can upgrade your standard aquarium lighting to LED lights for a more vibrant, colourful effect and less heat. LED lighting also uses less energy and lasts longer than traditional bulbs.

3. Include rocks & driftwood – Rocks and driftwood add character to an aquarium, as well as providing hiding places for your fish. Rocks come in a variety of colours and sizes, so you can create an interesting landscape. 

4. Use automated equipment – Automated aquarium equipment, such as filters, heaters, and timers make life easier for aquarium owners. These devices can be set to operate on a schedule or be controlled remotely via an app.

5. Install a background – Installing a background in your aquarium enhances the look of your tank and adds to the visual appeal. Choose from a range of options, such as natural stone backdrops or custom-made vinyl designs.

6. Upgrade your substrate – Substrate is the material used to line the bottom of an aquarium, and is important for providing beneficial bacteria and nutrients for plants. You may want to upgrade your substrate by adding a richer soil or gravel layer for better plant growth.

With the right upgrades, you can transform your aquarium into a stunning showcase that will be the envy of your guests. The possibilities are endless when it comes to upgrading your tank and equipment – so get creative and make something special!
