Aquarium rocks add to the landscape of your water environment. They also help anchor plants and create a place for fish to swim through and hide behind, making them feel more at home.
You’ll first want to decide on whether you want natural and artificial rocks. The only difference is in the appearance of the rock, although many artificial rocks are often mistaken for natural rocks. Natural rocks that have been smoothed by the water look elegant in an aquarium. There are many different colors to choose from such as black, white, and multi-colored. Unusual colored stones look beautiful in a unique aquarium or a home with a modern look.
There are also different sizes and shapes to choose from. A selection of various sizes and colors generally looks the most natural. And the great thing about rocks is that they require no maintenance and enhance the natural beauty of your fish and plant life.
Another idea to try and make your aquarium resemble the ocean is by adding a background. There is a wide selection of beautiful natural looking backgrounds that, when mixed with rock and plant life, appear as if you’re actually floating in the ocean.
