Freshwater Aquarium Maintenance – Keeping It Clean!

by whispaq on June 21, 2019

There are several “critter homes” that are available for purchase at major pet supply stores, and they work well as small aquariums. Soon the tadpole will be a frog, and a larger area to swim will be required. Pet supply stores also have food for aquatic frogs, which is about the same substance as the powder, but it comes in little pellets. It’s about for a small can of pellets, which last about a month or so.

Add spring water to your little box, some powdered food, and gently slide the tadpole in. It will calm down probably in a day or so. Don’t try to hold the fragile tadpole, and any contact you have with the tadpole or the water should result in the washing of your hands.

If you have decided to go with a fish tank to keep your fish in, then you can look for various accessories to help you take care of your fish or to just decorate the fish tank and give them areas to swim around. You can use filters to help keep the tank clean enough for your fish or a light to keep them warm. You can use little trees and rock decor designed for fish tanks to add some scenery or give your fish a place to swim in or around.

You can get an aquarium that is self-cleaning; it comes with a Whisper Aquarium Filters that uses chemicals (not harmful to the fish) to get out any dirt, grime, discoloration and general impurities that are not good for your fish. There’s a catch here though – you have to change the filter every 3-4 weeks, but this should be no big deal. It’s easy because all you need to do is buy a new one, install it and throw out the old one. Unless you’re up to it, you can try to get the old one clean, but it will take you a while and it might be a bit disgusting and tiresome.

Compare the rate of staff turnover at the shops available in malls with stores in which you can actually get to know the owners. As that rate descends, the level of quality of information and facts from your staff ascends.

To breed convicts, you need several things. Water, a tank, and a male and female fish. It helps to have a “cave” where the female will feel safe to lay her eggs. It also helps to have the temperature at an even 80-82 degrees and the water chemistry “just right”. However, ours have bred with the temperature at 70 degrees and the ph lower than they like and the ammonia reaching toxic levels!! The eggs and fry did just fine! However, we have noticed that when temps are lower, it takes longer for the eggs to hatch.

Should you decide on an under gravel filter, be sure that the air-pump or powerhead you purchase with it is strong enough for the size of the fish tank. In cases like this, bigger is far better. Remember that in case you don’t consistently vacuum the gravel it is going to clog up the under gravel filter and transform it into a killing zone. Remember that you can’t make use of an under gravel filter if you are considering having sand or some other fine substrates. The substrates that you use, will be determined by the fish you will keep, and this in turn will help determine the filtration system.

After spawning with one female, the male will entice another one under the nest and this can continue until he runs out of females ready to breed. The total spawning procedure can take several hours. After spawning the male will add another layer of bubbles to the underside of the nest. He will defend his nest and the eggs. The females will need to be removed without disrupting the nest.
