Setting Up A Natural Amazon Themed Aquarium

by whispaq on June 24, 2019

To correct the problem of the sunlight, I put up bamboo shades that allow filtered sunlight into the room without my ever having to open them. Since the only view from this window is the street and sidewalk, not opening this shade ever again is not a problem. (Additionally, you may plan to put a Mylar screen on the backside of the tank to keep out extra sun.) The result is that my fish well receive nice filtered sunlight without being in direct sunlight. This will mimic sunlight filtering down through the leaves of trees to a mountain creek bed, which is what they would have in the wild. They well enjoy that.

Once you have your rocks and driftwood in place you can start to plan where you will place your plants. Try to keep in mind how much room the plants will need to grow and do some research on how large each plant will grow. Otherwise you will find yourself having to move or remove plants as they get too large which can ruin the beauty of the aquarium and also the fish can have a hard time with no room to swim freely.

Under gravel filters are becoming less and less preferred for a number of factors; they don’t perform as effectively as a Hang on back/Whisper Aquarium Filters, they can be noisy, and they will need more upkeep.

Taking those two things into consideration, I shall now point out that bowls, 2 gal tanks, and 5 gal tanks are inhumane and are the reason that 90% of all pet Goldfish die before they reach 3 years of ages and 5 inches in size.

There can be many causes for this, overfeeding is the most common. When you feed, make sure that everything is consumed within 3 to 5 minutes and only feed twice each day, three maximum. Some aquarists go so far as to say only feed once daily and if any food hits the bottom of the tank you are overfeeding!

The first thing I should point out is that Goldfish live up to 20 years or more, if well cared for and living in good conditions. The second thing I must point out is that Goldfish get up to 10 inches or more.

Worms are a delectable treat to aquatic frogs, and many come in easy-to-squeeze packaging. Don’t worry, even with this treat, your frog will still eat it’s normal food too.

If it does not, try using bottled drinking water or distilled water. You can make your own distilled or RO water but it’s best to experiment first to make sure water is at the root of your problem.
