Keeping Your Aquarium Clean

by whispaq on July 22, 2019

The media baskets are instrumental in obstructing water flowing to the wrong places. With well interlocked media baskets the chances of cleansing are reduced to a great extent.One cleaning in 3 to 6 months would be enough. The tank filter comes with the media basket fittings and the various valves. The other advantage of the filter is that the input and output water pipes have a swivel capacity of 360 degrees so that filling in fresh water and draining out used water can be done without a hassle. Not just this, the o- ring that is integrated to the filter with a silicone base makes sure that there is no leakage of water during the process of filtration.

Yuck – algae can destroy even the most stunning tank, and your eyes seem to always go to it, even if you would like to enjoy the gorgeous fish that are in front of you.

Another tip that’ll make deciding how many fish and what types (by size, in this case) you keep is this: Tropical Freshwater Fish (not goldfish, which will be covered in another article) require an “inch of fish per gallon of water”. For instance, with a 20-gallon tank, roughly 20 inches of fish should be safe. Allow for growth and, well. personal space. While 20 fish in a 20-gallon tank wouldn’t throw too much out of whack, it may still be a bit crowded.

If you opt to go with a Whisper Aquarium Filters, choose one which will move sufficient water for the size of your fish tank. Preferably, it ought to move five gallons of water per hour, per gallon of your fish tank capacity. As an example: a ten gallon. fish tank will need a filtration system that circulates at the very least 50 gallons per hour.

The amazing variety and beauty of Amazonian fish and plants is what drew me to this style of aquarium. I have fallen in love with creating Amazon community tanks and re-creating the environment and natural eco-systems of this river.

If your tank smells rancid, it most likely is, and that is bad for your fish. Change out your filter media more often to keep your water healthy. Although your fish seem to be surviving, they are not flourishing and you will spend a lot more time caring for the tank than necessary.

Finally, decide on glass or acrylic. Glass is cheaper and has seams. Acrylic is one piece and scratches can be removed (it isn’t easy, but it is possible). There aren’t really any other major differences.

Don’t be surprised to see the parents picking the wrigglers or fry up in their mouths. Often, they’re just moving them. Picture a mom and dad on a playground with 100 active toddlers running everywhere!! Surely one will get swallowed once in a while by accident, but don’t worry too much. Don’t worry if they all of a sudden disappear and you can’t find any babies anywhere!! This has happened to us twice, and both times the babies were back the next day. We’ve never figured out where they’re hiding!
