Nature aquariums are not only about the fish but also about the general design of the scape in the aquarium itself. The placement of the wood, rocks, live plants and sand is an art that is inspired by creating a real life masterpiece of nature itself. When a large school of small colourful fish named Tetra’s are introduced, they move in sequence to create a marvellous dance to witness from the natural world behind glass.
Nature Aquarium Benefits:
- The vibrantly green coloration of the plants and the artistic approach to creating a natural landscape is to essentially bring a tiny piece of nature back into our lives.
- Having this kind of aquarium could be beneficial to our mental health simply because each human is still hardwired to have a deep and intimate connection with nature.
- You can also witness an interesting symbiotic relationship between plants, fish, crustaceans and shrimp that creates a complete living ecosystem where each creature benefits from one and other.
These aquariums can look like an underwater forest or a mountain landscape.
