Fish are difficult to interact with their owners but they are full of ornamentals. In order to enjoy the beautiful fish better, the owners need to choose the aquarium carefully. The most important of the aquarium is of course, glass, only through the glass, we can well observe their posture. So what kind of glass should the aquarium use?
Ordinary glass is our most common glass. In everyday life, many windows and doors are common glass, and this kind of glass is also common in aquarium. Careful observation can be found that ordinary glass is not pure and transparent, they appear light green, so it is also known as green glass. This kind of glass has good ductility, and it can be easily made into hot bending and irregular aquarium, so friends who like grotesque aquarium can choose this kind of glass.
But if the aquarium is too large and needs more than 1 tons of water, which is 1 cubic meters of aquarium, it is not suitable for ordinary glass. Its bearing capacity is not strong enough.
The light transmittance and color reduction of ordinary glass are generally suitable for small fish tanks, so the owners of a large number of large fish are still carefully considered.
Float glass showing light blue, also known as Lanbo. Float glass has better transmittance than ordinary glass, but it will be more expensive in price. The float glass fish tank on the market is very small, not only the price problem, but also its poor ductility, so it is difficult to make hot bending and heterosexual aquarium. The owner chooses float glass, which represents no distinctive features.
Acrylic is absolutely the first choice for the aquarium material! They are much more efficient than those of ultra white glass, and have excellent plasticity, and can be made into any shape. Compared with glass, this kind of plexiglass is more secure. However, the hardness of acrylic is not as good as glass, it will also appear to be yellow and dirty with time, and the cost is higher than that of ordinary glass.
