The Secrets Of How To Breed Discus Fish

Naturally I made my way to Petco, and picked up the filter in the store. The price was .00 higher than the internet ‘sale’. That annoyed me, because the store should offer the same damn prices they offer online. I always am bothered by that, when stores charge more in the store. and you had to drive there!

Add your fish. If everything is working properly your ready to put the most important little stress reliever inside, your type of fish that you want to keep will complete it all. Float your new fish while still in the bag they came in for about 15 minutes to reduce stress to your fish.

You will also need a water PH test kit. The ideal PH for an Amazon aquarium is 5.5 – 6. This will mean that the water is soft just like the conditions in the Amazon river itself. You can lower your PH to suit if need be. The best way to do this is to add rain-water to the aquarium, catch it in a bucket if you have to when it rains. Rain-water is as soft as water can get and on its own can even be too soft. Another thing that helps soften the water is lots of driftwood, which we already have planned for the aquarium.

I am assuming that you have your aquarium ready in place and your heating and filtration equipment already purchased, but here are a few quick tips for your setup.

If floating particles in your tank is a concern, we recommend a Whisper Aquarium Filters, they are very low maintenance. In addition to removing the solids, they also employ chemicals to eliminate odor and discoloration.

This is usually only a fish killer it taken to an extreme, but is still dangerous even in a small capacity. Feed both according to your fish food instructions and pay attention to how much food your fish actually eat as opposed to how much you are feeding them. Uneaten food will collect at the bottom of your tank and from there decompose, sending ammonia levels up higher than they should go. Investing in a small catfish will help keep uneaten food down to a minimum. and hey. they even spice up the tank!

Don’t get me wrong, fish die just like the rest of us. Sometimes a fishes days are just numbered, but if you’re seeing a trend in the belly-up category, something needs to change.

Decorations. Place your decorations where you want them and fill the tank with water. You can fill the tank one bucket at a time or purchase a sink hose adapter fitting and fill the aquarium with a hose that you’ll use for your aquariums. Place a large bowl in the bottom of the tank to break the force of the water flow.
