沙床计算器

选择与水族箱形状非常相似的水箱形状。

设置暗礁坦克需要经过深思熟虑和规划。水族学家有时会忽视基质的重要性。乍一看,基材只是一种装饰。它在那里覆盖水族馆的底部。但它不仅仅是一些沙子。你可能还记得裸底珊瑚缸。这个想法是通过去除捕获有机污泥的基质颗粒来防止碎片堆积。裸露的底部应该允许碎屑被吹散并进入过滤系统,使油箱保持原始状态。跳到今天,我们现在知道在礁石水族箱中有一层砂基质是可能的和有益的。但它不仅仅是简单地将底物倾倒在水箱底部。如果您希望沙床正常工作,那么需要一些真正的科学知识。好奇?这是您需要了解的关于沙床的信息。

驱动我们珊瑚礁水族箱的主要引擎是数十亿隐形微生物,它们可以回收营养物质并清除毒素。这个看不见的词日夜工作,我们的眼睛大多看不见。许多这些微观生命形式生活在岩石中和岩石上。他们还将在基板上开店。一般而言,沙床为有益的微生物定殖提供了场所。但沙子的类型和沙床的深度会影响水族箱中发生的微生物作用。沙床分为两类。浅层床通常为1.5至2英寸深。深沙床可以达到几英寸厚。每个类别中使用的沙子的大小也会影响沙床的性能。我们会分解它。

浅沙床和细沙

1.5至2英寸的精细沙床看起来如丝般光滑。流行的基材是Fiji Pink和Aragamax sand。您将有足够的额外表面积用于需氧细菌。如果您有强力流量泵,沙子很轻,可以吹走。这可能会导致油箱底部露出裸露的斑点。

深床,细沙

6至8英寸的细沙床将具有光滑的外观以及有氧和厌氧区域的好处。这是因为较深的层不会经常被吹到并暴露在含氧水中。你想要一个沙子筛选清理人员来挑选沙粒。他们将保持较深的层没有淤泥碎屑,但不会扰乱低氧区。下方是较深的床需要更多的沙子,这减少了水族箱的空间和水量。

浅层粗粒砂床

Another popular option is to create a shallow bed using coarse grained sand. There’s less surface area, but it won’t make any difference in the big picture. The heavier, more dense particles won’t be blown around by wave pumps. The coarser particles will act as a detritus trap. Some organic matter is great, acting as a food source for the microbes. But too much can lead to hydrogen sulfide pockets. A clean-up crew will help along with modest feeding with frozen and prepared foods. You can easily clean it with a gravel vac while making a water change.

Deep sand bed with coarse gravel

We say “Don’t do it!” Deep coarse sand beds are tricky. They will eventually clog with organic sludge and become pockets of anaerobic activity that produce poisonous hydrogen sulfide. It’s better not to risk it and in reality, you can achieve better results by using a deep bed of fine sand. You’ll get the denitrification, great looks but without the difficult to maintain sludge layer. How much you need depends on type of sand and footprint of your aquarium We’ve made it easy to figure out with our marine Depot Sand Bed Depth Calculator! Just put in your tank’s dimensions and type of bed you want to build. You’ll also have to plug in the density of the sand product you want to use. This can be found on the product description page. It’s easy! No more guessing!
