What you need to know is the proper way of maintaining your tank to make it pleasing to the eyes at all times. Watch the video here to see how some few little touch improved my backyard fish farm.
Besides all other pond supplies, the fish is the most important. It cannot be called an fish pond without the species that will swim into it. This can come in varying types depending on the tank you put up.
There is a specific lifespan for the fish. However, it can be changed through your maintenance. There are times that fish has longer lifespan but due to your negligence, it can be shorten to months instead of years. This will just be a waste of money so better to take note of this factor.
Below are some reminders for proficient care of your tropical fish:
1. Have regular check for the unnecessary things that may fall into the tank.
Cleanliness is very essential for your maintenance. This will not concern the pleasing appeal of the tank alone but most particularly the health of the species residing in the habitat. You can use filtration supply on this matter. Cleaning habit can be done weekly or you can do it gradually if you see some falling food remains at the surface of the tank.
2. Take note of aggressive species.
Peaceful types of fish are more advisable because aggressive specie can affect the entire habitat. One can kill the other. Prevent this scenario to happen by putting them on a separate tank or else you can probably end up with your tank to nothing.
3. Do not overfeed the aquarium fish.
Some fish are only required to be fed once a day although others are for twice. Overfeeding is not helpful nor will it make your fish grow larger instantly. Many cases have shown that it can cause death to your fish.
4. When changing the water, add product that will remove chlorine in the water.
Chlorine can be toxicant for your fish. You can purchase products from pet stores in order to eliminate the amount of chlorine in the water. But in the absence of such, you can opt to do what I have been doing- use aged water.
