Another benefit to having a large home aquarium is that your equipment and livestock options are almost limitless. You’ll get your pick of the best pumps, powerful protein skimmers and the most advanced aquarium lighting systems on the planet. You’ll be less likely to compromise on livestock as well since you’ll have the space to accommodate a variety of fish, coral and invertebrate.

Here are some things you should keep in mind if you are tempted to add a fusilier to your home aquarium. First of all, because they are so active, it is imperative that fusiliers be kept in a large aquarium with plenty of open swimming space. I would say a saltwater aquarium of at least 180 gallons for some of the smaller forms (e.g., wideband fusilier, Pterocaesio lativittata; bluestreak fusilier, P. tile) and 240-gallons or larger for the more sizeable species (scissortail fusilier, Caesio caerulaurea; blue and yellow fusilier, C. teres). They are built like a torpedo and can fly through the water with ease. If they are startled, they may dash upwards and hurl themselves out of an open aquarium. Therefore, a top is always required on the fusilier aquarium. The Large Home Aquarium

Consider adding an aquarium to your interior design, because there are a few reasons why you really should have it in your home. A small tropical fish aquarium on a deck or a large glass fish tank on a stand, portable or built-in glass fish tanks and hanging on a wall aquariums that look like artworks bring unique details into modern interior design and create fabulous centerpieces for room decorating.Large aquaria have much to offer those of us "in the hobby." In addition to satisfying the space requirements of big fish, large tanks tend to offer more stable water conditions than do similarly stocked and filtered smaller tanks. And, if properly set-up and maintained, a large aquarium can be an extremely impressive addition to your home.Thinking about a large home aquarium? Even if you aren’t, there are plenty of good reasons for getting one. Perhaps you’d like to house a really big fish or two, or several aggressive fish in the same tank, or maybe you’d just like to put LOTS of little fish in one tank. Or maybe you’re an aquarist who is now ready for the challenge of setting up and maintaining a bigger aquarium.Selecting a fish tank for your home decorating you want to find a functional and energy saving aquarium in a pleasing form. Unusual as well as a custom made aquariums make great home decorations and create stunning centerpieces that enhance modern interior design with original design, small or large size and unique shape.

Small and large glass fish tanks make spectacular focal point for interior decorating, personalize your home decor and Feng Shui it for wealth.Home staging is the art of creating inviting and spacious rooms to sell your house fast. Aquariums are beautiful home decor items that attract a lot of attention. Glass aquarium tanks are impressive and create a challenge for home staging. A small aquarium tank can be moved or removed from a room for homestaging, but medium-size and large tropical fish aquarium tanks make home staging a bit complicated.Positioning a large aquarium in your home requires a bit more forethought than with standard-sized tanks. As always, a level spot, free from direct sunlight and heavy foot traffic is required. You'll need to plan for easy access for feeding and maintenance. And, of course, you’ll want to locate the tank in a place that offers comfortable viewing for you and your guests—but remember that you need not sit as close to large aquaria as you do with smaller ones.
