Basalt Rock Large Ornament
You may ask yourself are fish tank ornaments really that necessary? Do I really need that shipwreck centrepiece or that beautiful castle that turns a sad boring corner of the aquarium from plain to a powerful statement? Sure its eye catching and aesthetically pleasing, but just how necessary is it? The answer is that it is very necessary.
The value of placing appropriate ornaments in your aquarium lies in their ability to provide a territory for fish to protect and in turn, in which to seek protection. Some fish are by nature territorial and will take ownership of parts or all of your aquarium fighting off rivals and staking their claim. Having ornaments inside your tank provides an opportunity for your fish to make a home to defend. This behaviour is specifically found with African Cichlids as well as many other species. This can become vitally important when introducing new fish. By taking out old ornaments and replacing them, or by changing the tank scape or by adding a new formation to the aquarium you can force a behavioural reset where new fish are afforded the opportunity to find a territory without encroaching on already established boundaries.
Other ways in which aquarium ornaments are vital are in their ability to provide shelter for frightened or skittish fish or as a sanctuary in which eggs can be laid for breeding.
The crucial thing to be aware of in choosing an ornament is the size of the opeing relevant to the fish that you have. Avoid tight fitting ornaments or caves in which your fish may become trapped.
