An aquarium is not just a system it’s a living ecosystem. All of the parts have to work equally to maintain a balance in the system. If something changes the balance can be changed? There can be so many factors that contribute to the balance of the aquarium.
Choose the Right Amount of Fish for Your Aquarium
When you go to the pet store for the first time, it’s tempting to have so many beautiful fish in your tank. It’s really hard to choose from so many options. Your aquarium should provide enough clean, oxygen-rich, fairly warm water for each fish. The balance can be disturbed if there are too many fish in the aquarium.
Filter Your Aquarium
Filtration systems are vital to keeping water clean and healthy fish produce more waste than any other plant or fish consumes. Remember the following points: If your filter is too small or defective, the aquarium can quickly become contaminated and chemicals can accumulate to toxic levels. Filters will not function as soon as they are fixed, it might take some time. So ensuring the tank is clean during this period is essential. You can use aqua one filter pads for floating dirt. Adding too many fish can overload a new filtration system. If there aren’t too many fish in the aquarium you can sort this problem by changing the water once in a while.
Tank Temperature Monitoring
Each species of fish lives best at a certain water temperature. Different types of fishes will require different temperatures as they live in different habitats. Water temperatures in nature fluctuate – tropical fish tolerate them. The main thing is not to allow the temperature in the aquarium to rise or fall too much and the water temperature does not change suddenly. To better avoid potential problems, consider the following: Your dealer will recommend reliable and easy-to-use aquarium heaters and provide you with a thermometer for quick and accurate temperature measurements. Watch your fish: If they seem hyperactive, impulsive and a little crazy, the water temperature may be uncomfortably high. If your fish are lethargic, shivering or not interested in food, the tank temperature may be too low.
Food and Nutrition for Fish
Fish food in the market usually consists of all the nutrients needed for the fish. In terms of feeding frequency, feeding the fish several times in small quantities is better than feeding the fish in large quantities at one time. Small, frequent meals mimic the habits of fish in nature and are also easier in an aquarium’s filtration system. Having a healthy-sized aquarium and using adequate filters and maintaining proper temperature can contribute to a healthy growth of the fish.
You should at least try to spend few minutes once in two weeks to make sure the aquarium is clean and the parameters are within the normal range. The main aim of this is to make sure the aquarium is healthy. Sometimes it’s hard to maintain a pH of water but if all the other factors are under control the fish will remain healthy even though this parameter changes.
