Decorate Your Aquarium With Ornaments

Aquarium ornaments range from the naturalistic through decorative to what might be called novelty items. Dan Everton says that all add interest and form part of a pleasing aquascape.

In conjunction with real or artificial plants they provide structure with the fish drifting in, out and through them to create a living environment. Our large selection of aquarium ornaments also provide shade and shelter in which fish can linger.

biOrb

Naturalistic BiOrb aquarium ornaments that are also decorative will include those designed by Samuel Baker. Root and rock sculptures are in the range together with corals and plants that replicate the real thing found in the waters of the South China Sea and around Hawaii. There are also star fish and clamshell ornaments in various sizes and colours.

Also in the range are Feng Shui pebbles that might introduce beneficial energies, harmonising and balancing the aquarium. The flow of positive energy will be assisted by white pebbles that indicate spiritual and moral purity, black to banish any negative energy, green to promote hope and vitality and also red that indicates power and happiness.

Black or white Orb balls have also proved a popular feature and Samuel Baker has designed white and black pebble sculptures to add more stylish diversity to your fish tank aquascape. Also available are lifelike root ornaments with silk plants attached that can add authenticity to the scene.

Decorative ornaments from BiOrb can be employed to disguise the bubble tube in their aquariums but may also be used in other makes. There is an impressive variety including a Mushroom Tree, Castle, Towers, Driftwood, Bonsai, Coral and a Cobble Chimney even a Goddess in a ruined Grecian temple. There are also barrels, rocks, skulls, volcanoes and sunken 'No Fishing' signs, something to suit most tastes.

Fluval

Fluval produce Bamboo and Stone Wall ornaments for their Fluval Edge aquariums that usefully accommodate the filter tube as well as having baskets to contain real or artificial plants.

Penn Plax

To add more zest rather than authenticity you might want to try some air action Penn Plax ornaments. Divers float and swim to an opening treasure chest; a skeleton lifts a jug or at stands at the wheel of a sunken ship; an all action sea dog in a diving costume; more treasure chests, giant clams and a rocking wreck all bring a certain charm and movement to an aquarium.

Tetra

These floating ornaments will entertain the children, there's a Clownfish that can be anchored to the aquarium glass, together with an Octopus, Doctorfish and Sea Horse that are also in the range.

And Finally...

You can recreate underwater the activities of SpongeBob Square Pants and the other inhabitants of Bikini Bottom with colourful and zany ornaments including his pineapple home will certainly appeal to the younger members of the family or those of a quirky disposition.
