Depending on the size and design of the initial aquarium, our experts can provide the best advice to ensure that your fish live a long time, and your aquarium stays beautiful.
Here are a few initial tips that beginners often overlook when trying to set up an aquarium on their own:
- When people look to buy a fish aquarium, many unknowingly purchase a glass receptacle meant as a habitat for other pets, such as a lizard or turtle. Aquariums should be well-sealed, and are very different to abodes for other types of aquatic life. Make sure you choose carefully.
- People assume that a small aquarium is easier to clean than a big one. This is actually often untrue. A larger aquarium can actually be easier to maintain, as long as it is set up correctly.
- Many people try to cram too many fish into their aquarium when they first set it up. Overcrowding is one of the first ways beginners upset the fragile ecosystem that is set up in a successful aquarium. Our experts can make sure you choose the right number and type of fish for the aquarium you set up.
- When trying to buy a fish aquarium, beginners also tend to overcrowd the water using too many plants or rocks, pirate ships or other decorative objects. Make sure your fish have places to hide from perceived predators, but also have plenty of space to swim around. Would you rather live in an open space or feel confined and crowded in a small one?
- Fish-keeping takes some education. Many tanks suffer from 'new tank syndrome.' We show you how to deal with this effectively.
- Inappropriate medication usage once you buy a fish aquarium for fish is yet another beginner trap. Does your new fish have scale rot, or fungal infection? We can help treat the beginning symptoms of an unhealthy fish right away so that she stays alive and kicking, or...well, swimming.
- African Cichlids will often kill their North American cousins in a tank - did you know that? Knowing how to partner or group fish is essential to overall aquarium health. Let us help you make sure you aren't feeding one set of expensive fish to another.
