Aquarium Maintenance

You may feel you have enough to remember, do,  look out for and worry about, but learning to spot signs of impending problems is better than trying to deal with them later on. Methodical aquarium maintenance need not take longer than an a few minutes a day and an hour every other week depending on your aquariums size.   An aquarium service company is the best option if you find you are unable to make this type of time commitment.

There are a number of checks that you should make on a daily and weekly basis.

The first and foremost is a daily temperature check, together with a head count of the fishes.  Counting fish is best done at feeding time; they usually congregate to one spot.  Locate any absentees and search carefully for missing fish; it may simply not be hungry or sociable, but if it continues to behave this way, or seems off color, then you must assume something is wrong and begin further checks.  If the fish is dead remove the body before it decomposes and pollutes the aquarium before other fishes become infected with any disease that may have caused its demise.  Of course, the dead fish may not have succumbed to any disease; it may have been harassed to death by other fishes – in which case, be sure to check the compatibility of species before replacing.  Nevertheless, it is still vital to remove its body as soon as you discover it, to prevent fouling of the aquarium.  Marine fishes are sensitive to any stress or disturbance, so try to use your eyes more than your hands and keep your physical intrusions into the tank to the absolute minimum. If you do not find a fish in the tank, look on the floor, since some aquarium fish are expert escapers.

As the aquarium fish gradually becomes established, the fish will settle down into their natural behavior patterns.  If you observe the fishes’ normal activities, you will soon be able to recognize any irregularities that may be early indications of trouble.

Check the pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels in established tanks weekly intervals.  In a newly set aquarium it is a good idea to check the pH more regally.  Stabilize the pH by adding buffering materials, but if it falls. Again soon after being adjusted then a water change will be required.

Be sure nitrite level has fallen to a minimum before introducing more fish, and keep it low by adding livestock gradually.  In this way you can avoid overloading the biological filtration system.  Nitrate levels will continue to rise unless held in check by regular water changes.  Man y fishes are tolerant of higher levels of nitrate than invertebrates.

Reverse Osmosis… It’s all about the Water!

In the pursuit of providing the best water quality for your aquarium, you may find that the water coming out of your tap just does not have the correct parameters for your aquarium’s inhabitants. The plain tap water can even include toxic chemicals. One simple solution to this problem is to use a Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) unit to purify and soften the water.

How does Reverse Osmosis work?

Using the simple principle of applying a pressure gradient to a semi-permeable membrane, you can eliminate most of the chemicals found in the tap water and produce pure water. The semi-permeable R.O. membrane only allows very small molecules (such as H2O) to pass through it, effectively removing 90-99% of most water impurities including pesticides, arsenic and heavy metals.

Freshwater Aquariums
For freshwater applications, using an R.O. unit will provide water without General Hardness (GH) or Carbonate Hardness (KH). This allows addition of trace elements and electrolytes to match the natural water conditions of the fish we keep. The removal of the KH allows use of buffers to easily set the water’s pH wherever you wish. This is great for plants and soft water-loving fish like Discus and Angels.

Marine Aquariums
For marine applications, an R.O. unit removes most of the “unknowns” that might cause problems. But, unfortunately, the standard R.O. membrane does not remove nuisance chemicals like phosphate, nitrate, or silicates. These chemicals are undesirable because they contribute to algae growth, which is enough of a problem without adding nutrients to help it along. The Hi-S membrane, which is less permeable than standard R.O. membranes, removes up to 99% of silicates. An R.O. unit with a final stage deionization (D.I.) cartridge, removes any phosphates that pass through the R.O. unit. The combination R.O./D.I. gives you the pure water that is best for the fish and plants in your tank.

It is extremely important to condition the R.O. water for the specific aquatic inhabitants in your aquarium when doing regularly scheduled water changes or setting up a new aquarium.

At Dallas Aquarium Experts we always use Reverse Osmosis water on every aquarium we service and maintain.  In addition, to using R.O. water we know exactly how to properly condition the water for your aquariums specific needs and help your aquarium inhabitants thrive!  Contact Dallas Aquarium Experts today for a free consultation, the first step in beginning professional aquarium maintenance.
