Care of the aquariums

For almost a decade now, these aquariums have been cared for by members of the Munich Aquarium Society Amazonas-Löns. Our helpers come in two days a week to keep everything in tip-top shape. They clean the basins, change the water, take care of plants and fish, and make sure the pumps and other machinery are working properly.
These aesthetically appealing pools may tempt you to try making one yourself, but don’t be fooled – a beautiful aquarium is a lot of work, both to create and to maintain. Here in the Botanic Garden, they receive a lot of sunlight, which unfortunately causes rapid algae growth. If you do decide to install an aquarium at home, don’t place it near a window, and ask a specialist for advice, such as one of our volunteers. You can get more information at the entrance to the greenhouses.
