Aquariums in a home are a perfect solution if your home needs a modern design.

The first modern aquarium was developed in the 19th century by Robert Warrington. Nowadays aquariums are used in interior design to decorate homes and to bring life with a variety of colourful fish and other sea animals and plants. Manufacturing aquariums on demand is very demanding and expensive, but they can enrich the space and even colour and modernize it visually. A large number of aquariums are made of glass, with plastic frames silicone-sealed to the top and bottom side.

They can be of different shapes, such as hexagon, square, flat, etc. The materials developed in time, and glass tanks which are not so crack resistant were replaced by acrylic tanks. Acrylic tanks are stronger and lighter than the glass ones, but their fault is that they yellow over time. Laminated glass is the perfect solution because it combines the advantages of the glass and acrylic tanks.

Christopher Stevens, a famous Manhattan interior designer, has worked on several giant fish tanks projects, and said that his clients want to add movement and fluidity to what might otherwise be an arid space. This way the space is humanized with the introduction of natural elements. However this fluidity has a price. Aquarium installation is very expensive, and also the pet maintenance which can amount to a couple of hundreds of pounds a month.
