如何开一个Nano 海水微缸

开一个 Nano 其实很简单,与传统的海缸几乎是一样的。

本文要聊一聊Nano那点儿事,还有必要的设备。


首先选择大小

你要选择自己喜欢的水族箱。有三个常见尺寸,40、60或80升。


接下来,确定照明系统

用节能灯作为照明,改装或DIY灯罩是首选。

节能灯(PC)可以为很多珊瑚提供足够的照明。


加热棒我强烈推荐50瓦或75瓦的Ebo Jager加热棒,因为这是经过市场检验的。


最后,还需要一个小水泵提供循环。我觉得一些迷你水泵很安静,而且效果也不错,当然其他尺寸的水泵一样出色。


过滤系统,我推荐自然过滤法 - 柏林系统。至少每升水搭配0.12千克活石、0.18千克活沙。更多关于过滤的问题在后面会介绍更多。


选择Nano摆放位置时,有必要考虑以下几点。鱼缸摆放位置要平坦、坚固,至少能承受鱼缸及支架的重量。最好选择显眼的位置,这样就不会忘记投喂、清洁和最基本的维护了。


准备启动计划时要准备好海盐比重计

摇臂式比重计或悬浮式比重计价格便宜,精确度可以满足要求。

当然,价格更昂贵的比重计精确度更高。


先装满水,再向水中化盐,调整比重到1.023。在水中放入水泵,加速盐的溶解。

然后安装加热棒,将水温调整到25度。

当盐度稳定到预期值后,即可加入活石和活沙。先放活石,摆放得尽量松散些,让鱼儿们有藏身之所。


在此过程中尽可能发挥你的想象力,不要怕日后再调整。摆好活石,下活沙。铺沙要均匀且有一定厚度。

接下来就是生物了。
