A review of wall-mounted aquariums

There is nothing more relaxing that watching fish swim around a fish tank. Not everyone is content to just have a little fish bowl with a single goldfish in it. If you fancy having a big selection of fish you may want to consider buying a larger wall hanging aquarium. Read on for a review of wall mounted fish aquariums.

Wall-mounted aquariums

Wall-mounted aquariums are simply wall hanging fish tanks. You've probably seen them in restaurants and luxury hotels, or most likely you've seen them in pet shops and in wall aquarium pictures. If you want to add a touch of class or glamour to your home and would like some low maintenance pets, then a wall-mounted fish bowl or tank could be perfect for you. This will take a professional installation and requires a certain amount of uptake for the fish that you choose too, so don't take this decision lightly. The next section cover the choices that you'll need to make.

Choosing what you need

Before you do anything else, decide what fish you would like inhabiting your tank. Certain fish need to live in fresh water and others need to live in salt water. Some fish also do better in smaller bowls than the large fish tanks that we are describing here. Do your research, you shouldn't pick fish that other fish you like, are most likely going to eat. Extras You also need to check which extras you'll need in your aquarium. Some fish need plants in their tank, and it's a good idea to get some toys like little castles too, as they like to hide and play in these toys. The biggest consideration, however, is the room you have. If you live in a one bedroom flat, you may be better off buying a small goldfish bowl. So, check that your measurements are correct before you move on to the buying stage.

Buying

You can buy these fish tanks in most pet shops, including pets at home and Leekes. Moreover, check any pet stores that are local to you. However, the easiest place to purchase your tanks is online. You can get small wall hung tanks and bowls from online stores like Play.com and Amazon.co.uk.
