Aquarium fish: the content

Any decisions related to the acquisition and domestication of a living being, must be pre-grounded and thought out. After all, it is not about things but about living beings, like You and me. Therefore, buying fish and your first aquarium, be sure to be knowledgeable and responsible person.

Many people think that all this beauty in aquariums, these colourful fish magic is just a matter of time and money. But they are wrong, so how to keep aquarium fish in those conditions in which they can show all their natural beauty and individuality is an art.

What you need to know before buying fish

The first important point is to decide which fish will live in Your aquarium. This is the main indicator when choosing a suitable aquarium, and it will help to choose the right soil and algae (to a certain species of fish). But, of course, first you need to be completely sure that You want it is fish, rather than, say, a cat or a hamster. Weigh all the “pros” and “cons”.

The second point is the technical execution of the plan. It determines the viability of the enterprise. You need to choose:

temperature

the freshness

acidity

food

compatible fish (predators or not)

the ground

algae

Once again I would like to note that if You wish to have an aquarium, as part of interior,it is better not to buy fish, and just fill it with different species of algae. In our time this is called natural aquarium or aquascaping.

Compatible fish

The issue of power is usually closely associated with what types of fish live together, that is, they will work. You need to be careful not to put predators with herbivores. For a start it is best to purchase several kinds of ornamental fish, as they adapt to new conditions. All these fish should be approximately the same size and not too different in behavior. Best fish live together-relatives.

Before buying it is important to ensure that the fish are healthy. For this to be diagnosed during the inspection any damage, tablecloth, no flakes, scratches and so on. Healthy fish should be energetic and fast.

The number of fish in the aquarium

About the number of fish in an aquarium can be say that they should not be too crowded. The number of fish depends on size of aquarium. A 40-liter tank fit 20 small fish (up to 5cm), meaning one fish 2 liters of water (therefore, the fish size of 10 cm you need 4 litre size 12 cm 8 liters and so on). For heat-loving fish, the water temperature should be about 25 degrees, and a volume of water twice. If Your fish are labyrinth, that is enough doubly less water. If the oxygen and water filtration in the aquarium is very good, it can accommodate more fish. The same applies to low aquariums.

In this article we discussed the General issues of the content of aquarium fish. In the next part we will delve into the implementation of technical issues that can also cause problems for beginners.
