The benefit of a cleaner shrimp is that it will clean the tank for you. With this we mean that the shrimp will eat dead skin. If a fish is sick, what it can do is to swim beside the cleaner shrimp so the shrimp can eat the bacteria.

Nano aquariums are small versions of regular-sized aquariums and are perfect if you live in a small apartment.
For reef aquariums, you may use acitinic lights. These are kinds of lights that have UV wavelengths. These UV lights penetrate the water and this makes it easy for corals and other invertebrates to absorb light.

1. Measure the area for your pond. When digging the hole for the pond, make it a little larger than measured to allow for several layers of lining materials. Sloping sides rather than steep will ensure that your lining materials wont slide out of position. Use a thin layer of sand or underlay on all sides of the hole before adding the liner. Doing so will stop stones or roots from tearing holes in the liner and causing leaks.
