Fish that will clean your aquarium

Lets face it, nobody likes to clean their fish tank. I have one and it is a royal pain in the ass. If you don’t have an easy clean fish tank then you can always get a species of fish that will clean your tank for you. I’ll go over a few of these below.

The Gato is one of the most commonly used species for tropical aquariums. They are very efficient at cleaning the aquarium, as they run the whole bottom looking for any food scraps, except for the decomposing food.

The Hypostomus Plecostomus is a variation of the catfish, which also helps in cleaning the bottom of the aquarium, especially by eating and devouring all the algae it finds in its path. This activity takes place during the night, since during the day this type of fish needs to take hide out. In addition, it must be taken into account that it is a species of considerable size, which is why it will be necessary that it has enough space to swim around the tank and grow properly.

clownfishThe Clownfish is a mostly used to maintain good hygiene in the aquarium, and often act as tank cleaners. With it, the cleaning is guaranteed and, in addition, it will kill those snails that are born between the decorative elements and to beautify the fish tank with its striking and radiant colors. It is ideal for freshwater aquariums.

Now that you know which are the best fish to clean the aquarium and keep it spotless, it is important that, when buying them, to do it in reputable stores, thus avoiding species that do not work as cleaners. Also, always seek the help of a professional, since you must be careful when introducing this type of fish in your aquarium. They are incompatible with other fish and could end up in conflict with each other.

What Are The Best Yoga Accessories For Beginners?

Yoga is a great way to decrease stress and anxiety in your life while getting fit. Beginners often have a hard time picking and choosing the best yoga accessories to help them get started, so we have taken the time to compile a quick list of items below!


*It may seem like a complete given, but you will need a decent quality yoga mat. Cheaper mats can get slippery when you’re sweaty, but if you’re just starting out, it’s best not to invest in the most expensive yoga mat. Once you’re sure you wish to keep participating in yoga, spend the extra money for a better mat.

*Along with a good mat, you will need an absorbent towel. Yoga gives you a great workout, and that also means you must be prepared to sweat. A towel can help you wipe sweat off of your hands and feet. Though a simple bathroom hand towel may do, there are high quality yoga towels manufactured for this purpose.

*You can’t participate in yoga and carry all of your things to class without a yoga bag. These bags are fairly small and easily transportable, but they help keep all of your accessories organized.

*Yoga straps are incredibly helpful devices that can help improve your flexibility and train your muscles. Through the use of a strap, you can get better extensions and posture.

*There are yoga blocks you can purchase to help with your different yoga postures. They’re a fairly new trend, but they will give you a much deeper workout than just going through the motions.

*Make sure to purchase an approved yoga mat cleaner. It’s important to prolong the life of your mat and keep it free of germs.

*Yoga jewelry is another item that can’t be left out.  If you happen to own a yoga studio or meditation center then buy some wholesale yoga jewelry for your clients!

Are you ready to embrace yoga? Make sure to invest in these great accessories outlined above to get started!

Cornelius Things to Do

Was on a trip to Lake Norman over in North Carolina to visit some friends and figured I would blog about the area as it is quite nice.  The area of Cornelius is very close to Lake Norman so you can just drive on over to the lake and setup pretty much all day with your friends.  It does get a bit cold this time of year but it is still very pretty out. Lake Norman was created in 1963, by closing off the Catawba River. Lake Norman has roughly 500 miles of shore, and Cornelius has the highest amount of this shore in all the districts of the lake (about 70 miles).

Other than the lake you can go out and hit the town with good friends.  There are a lot of fun bars in the city and  there are lots of college students around as there are a few good universities in the Charlotte area.

What Makes Cornelius Special?

One of the things that makes Cornelius special is that it is a thriving place for small business.  I know people that own companies here.  One owns a carpet cleaning company that services Cornelius and the surrounding areas.  If you ever want to have a home service company then Cornelius is a good place to start as it has that small town feel and people look out for each other.

Random Facts

The city is only around 15 square miles and has a population of around 30,000 people.  The town was founded in 1893 and has a history of cotton weighing. The city is home to a championship golf course and has a wide variety of parks.
