  2. 2. The Basics Of Aquarium Care If you want to have fish in your home, you are a person that probably enjoys the beauty of nature. What you will need to know when having fish is basic aquarium care so that your fish will live long, happy lives. Most large aquariums will need little daily care because with the right equipment, the tank can in a sense take care of itself. But there are still some things as the owner that you can do in order to show proper aquarium care.
  3. 3. Feeding Feeding your fish all depends on the type of fish you are keeping in your tank. Most of the common aquarium species will need to be fed between two and three times a day. To have good aquarium care, only feed enough food that can be consumed within a few minutes, otherwise the tank can get dirty faster. You do not want to overfeed your fish because this contributes to poor water quality and will eventually cause disease in your fish.
  4. 4. Lighting Lighting is an important topic in aquarium care. The light of the aquarium should not be left on all the time unless you have live plants. Otherwise, only turn the light on when you are feeding or observing your fish. The tank light will not need to be on to keep your fish active. Natural light and other light from room lamps will be enough. Leaving the light on too long can cause an overgrowth of algae. A person who wants to have an easy time with their aquarium care can purchase a timer for the light.
  5. 5. Equipment Make sure you are checking your aquarium equipment often so that it maintains proper function. If you check the equipment for any malfunctions, it may save time and energy to quickly resolve problems. Problems left uncared for will result in sick and dying fish.
  6. 6. Observing The Fish Make sure to take a look at your fish everyday. Not only are they a calming, beautiful thing to look at, but also you need to make sure all of the fish look healthy and happy. If there is a problem with one of them, make sure to remove them from the rest in case it is a disease that is contagious.
