Cautions on small round aquariums
In such aquariums place everything you need for your pets even more difficult. Due to the small volume in it, it is not easy to create for the fish the shelters they need from plants, minerals and other decor. Without having sufficient shelter and the opportunity to find a separate place, the fish in the aquarium will experience stress.
The water surface of the sphere of round aquariums is small, and this affects the reduction of gas exchange. There is little oxygen in the water and the fish may suffocate. Compressed space can make the planting of many plants in the amount necessary for the conversion of nitrogen impossible.
In a small round aquarium without a filter, the water should be changed daily, but this is also an additional stress for your pets. Large temperature fluctuations due to the small volume of water, especially in the absence of thermal control equipment, in turn, is another adverse factor leading to bad consequences for its inhabitants.
In a small aquarium, more germs and bacteria are collected, and the cleaning equipment for it can be quite cumbersome.
