Why should you get an Algae Scrubber?

  1. Aesthetics: Algae can be unsightly and can detract from the overall appearance of the aquarium. Removing algae helps to keep the tank looking clean and well-maintained.
  2. Water quality: Algae can consume nutrients in the water, leading to imbalances that can affect the health of the fish and other inhabitants of the aquarium. Removing algae helps to maintain proper water chemistry and quality.
  3. Light: Algae can block light from reaching other plants and animals in the aquarium, which can impact their growth and overall health. Removing algae helps to ensure that all inhabitants of the tank receive sufficient light.
  4. Filtration: Algae can clog filters and other equipment, reducing their efficiency and potentially leading to mechanical issues. Removing algae helps to maintain the proper functioning of filtration and other equipment.
Overall, cleaning algae from an aquarium is an important part of proper maintenance and helps to ensure the health and well-being of the tank's inhabitants and the overall appearance of the aquarium. Caution: Please handle this with extra care and keep it out of reach of children.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
