Pirate Aquarium Theme Suggestions
The Pirate Aquarium Theme is a really great theme to design for young boys. It is also one of the easiest themes to create because of the numerous amount of aquarium dab rigs decor that you could get for it. It is after all among the oldest type of fish tank decorations and has stood the test of time as one of the most well known.
When creating the design for your aquarium theme, you would have to keep in mind two very important aspects of aquarium decorating. The first is to provide a cave. Caves are a very important feature which every aquarium theme should incorporate. Caves provide your fish with a place to escape to when they feel stressed or threatened. Having a suitable cave will improve the overall health of your fish and lengthen its life.
The second important factor when it comes to decorating a fish tank is swim space. Do not make the mistake of placing too many different aquarium ornaments into your aquarium which eventually eat into the space that your fish swims in. There are so many cool Pirate ornaments being sold today and you may be tempted to put in as many as you can. But the more ornaments you put into the water, the less space your fish has to swim around. Please remember that swim space is a lot more important than fish tank decorations.
The first item which should select is the cave ornament. There are dozens of different cave ornaments that you could select from for this aquarium theme which can be classified according to the genre. This includes actual pirate caves, pirate ships and pirate skulls. The pirate caves being sold today have small skulls at the top of a replica of a mountain with a large opening at its base. Pirate ships are sold either as a complete ship or a rotting shipwreck. I love the shipwreck ones and since the ornament will lay at the bottom of your tank, it makes more sense. These ships have large openings in their hull for the fish to enter. Pirate skulls also make great caves for your fish. The eye sockets are large enough for any fish to go into and the skull cavity has ample room for the fish to be in.
Once you have selected a suitable cave, you may want to add on accompanying ornaments to make the theme look more interesting. Again, there are dozens of different fish tank ornaments sold based on the Pirate Theme and you should select the type that you want based on the type of cave that you have chosen. This will make your aquarium design look great. Matching the wrong type of decorations would make it look awkward.
