Tips to keep your Aquarium Fishes Healthy

Temperature Control For Your Aquarium

When it comes to caring for your fishes, temperature control is one of the most important aspects.

Although we may really feel the weather outside, your aquarium fish are more likely to suffer from any drastic changes to temperature which may occur inside the tank.

 

So the following tips are worth noting:

1) Ensure that you switch the lights off during the hottest part of the day.

2) Check that your heater is properly working and keeping a steady temperature. Water which is too warm may result in the fish suffocating.

3) If you need to make any change in temperature always do so gradually.

Regular care and maintenance should involve vigorous aeration and filtration. Make sure that you clean your tank out regularly to ensure that the fish remain healthy .

 

General Tips

Now you know the basic fundamentals of keeping your tank optimal for your fishes health and well being . Remember a well maintained aquarium is an one full of happy fishes.  Enjoy !
