The Reef Shop offers a wide range of aquarium supplies and products across Australia.
A wide variety of aquariums are being kept by hobbyists, ranging from a simple bowl housing a single fish to complex simulated ecosystems with carefully engineered support systems and supplies.
An Aquarium is usually classified as containing fresh or salt water, at tropical or cold water temperatures. These characteristics, and others, determine the type of fish and other inhabitants that can survive and thrive in the aquarium. Inhabitants are often collected from the wild, although there is a growing list of organism that are bred in captivity for aquarium supplies.
Controlling water quality includes managing the inflow and outflow of nutrients, particularly the management of waste produced by tank inhabitants. Other components in maintaining a suitable aquarium environment include appropriate species selection, management of biological loading and a wide range of aquarium supplies and products.
