Aquarium Tips: Part 5

Nature Aquariums and Aquascapes by Samit Roy
Tips that you must know before setting up an Aquarium Part 5:

9. Be aware of the “Beginners’ Blue”. The initial weeks could be frustrating, as your fishes might die suddenly, water might become cloudy or green, plants might die or get covered with ugly algae. Be patient. Try to understand the cause of the problem. Remember, the slow and steady still wins the race.

10. Be prepared to spend time with your tank, fishers, and plants. You don’t need to spend all the time beside your tank or work vigorously everyday cleaning up buckets of dirty water. Just spend an hour or a half, everyday with your tank. Watch them, feel them, touch them, try to understand them. You will never regret that!

Found your blog while scuba diving the internet. It was very informative and enjoyable to read and see the pictures. I envy your guests.

My aquarium contains the basic-est of fishes - angels, goldfish, swordtail, red tail and albino shark and denisoni.

Can you suggest some tips for beautifying the aquarium? Thanks.
