Acrylic fish tank is made of special material like acrylic. This material is light and environmentally friendly, and the landscaping is also very beautiful, which is deeply loved by people. But in daily fish farming, the daily care of acrylic fish tanks is also an issue that needs our attention. Here is an explanation of how to care for acrylic fish tanks in daily life.

1. Acrylic is a new type of plastic material with good transparency and weather resistance. However, acrylic is easily corroded by some solvents. After the acrylic is corroded, it is likely to produce cracks that affect its appearance. In daily life, we should avoid contacting acrylic fish tanks with some quick-drying diluents, aromatic hydrocarbon solvents, esters such as ethyl acetate, and ketone solvents such as acetone. These solvents are corrosive, and Acrylic fish tank contact will erode the fish tank. Some paints, adhesives, various primers, etc. almost all contain toluene. These solvents will also corrode acrylic fish tanks, so avoid direct contact with acrylic fish tanks. In addition, these solvents also have a certain degree of volatility, and the volatilized gas will also corrode acrylic after contacting with acrylic, so don't talk about putting these things together with acrylic.

2. Acrylic is easily deformed when the temperature is above 100°C, so do not put acrylic in an environment with a temperature above 80°C, which may cause acrylic deformation. Do not put acrylic in an environment where there are many sparks in electric welding, some cigarette butts will also cause acrylic deformation, try not to throw cigarette butts around the acrylic. Avoid prolonged exposure of acrylic to lighting or spotlights.

3. If the acrylic fish tank is used for a long time, there will be some dust or oil on the surface of the fish tank. The way to clean the dust and oil is to wipe it gently with a soft cloth or sponge. For some difficult-to-remove stains such as oil stains, it is recommended to wipe slowly with warm water. When cleaning solvents such as detergent are necessary, make sure in advance that there is no solvent in the cleaning agent that will corrode the acrylic fish tank.

4. Sometimes there will be some difficult-to-remove stains on the acrylic surface, such as adhesive tape. When cleaning with some solvents, it will damage the acrylic surface, so don't use it. Scratching with sharp objects such as a knife may also scratch the acrylic. It is recommended not to use it. The general method is to wipe it off slowly with warm water.

The above are some of the issues that should be paid attention to in the daily care of acrylic fish tanks. Only by paying attention to these issues and following the methods will make the acrylic fish tank more durable. Welcome to continue to follow us and learn more about acrylic: Large acrylic panel.
