Pet Fish Tips:
Make sure you talk with the pet store owner to ensure you buy the correct type of food for your new pet fish
Don’t feed your fish too much – overfeeding will end up causing your water to be polluted – follow the feeding instructions provided, only feeding the recommended amount
A rule of thumb for how many fish you can have in one fish tank is one fish for every gallon of water
Believe it, fish can jump! Keep your fish tank covered.
Research your type of fish, find out all you can about them. The more you know about the species of fish you have the better you are able to care for them.
And, don’t forget to research aquarium equipment before you buy it. You may find the equipment you were about to buy may not be the best for your new pet fish.
Remember that fish like plenty of places to hide. So when purchasing your equipment don’t forget to purchase products that provide hiding places for them. The funny thing about fish, the more places they have to hide, the less they will hide!
When looking for a good place to put your tank, remember NOT to place your aquarium next to a window. You will find you will end up with “green algae”, not something you want. Also, the sun will cause the tank water to increase.
Everyone loves having the fish tank lite up, however only leave the lights on for 8 to 10 hours.
When cleaning your fish tank don’t forget to remove rocks and any decorations you have in the bottom of the tank.
