Maintenance Practice For Saltwater Fish Tanks

Saltwater fish tanks are amazing ways of rearing fish and other saltwater friendly aquatic animals. They require a good maintenance habit to keep the fish healthy.

Saltwater fish tanks need to be big in order to ensure the fish living in it are healthy and free from disease. The tank will need to be big for the fishes to be comfortable and grow well. A bigger tank will require a large amount of water, depending on the quantity of fish you are going to keep.

Saltwater fish are best kept in a see-through tank or glass, because of their colorful nature. They are beautifiers and lovely. They mostly consist of bright colors which are very attractive. They can be used in the house, parks and recreational centers for attractions.

 How to Care for Your Saltwater Fish Tank

Saltwater fish tanks require some facilities to work effectively. Some of the facilities you will need are tanks, live rocks, light bulb, protein skimmer, salt mix, hydrometer, thermometer, heater, maintenance tools, water pump, and a test kit to determine the PH, alkalinity and other properties that will make the water conducive for the fish to live in.

To maintain a saltwater fish tank, you will need to make sure that you balance the salt level of your saltwater tank. You must always add water and salt to your tank whenever the water evaporates and will also have to check the nitrate cycle to make sure it’s conducive for the fish to live in.

Saltwater fish tanks can be stressful because you might have to practice daily, weekly or monthly maintenance habits, which might include turning off and on of the light at an appropriate time and also inspecting the fishes for dead ones or those affected by disease.

Always check the flitters, protein skimmers and other components of the tank to make sure they are working properly.

You will need to get rid of excess algae and develop a weekly habit of cleaning the tank or glass. You will also need to carry out a weekly water test to ensure that no properties of good saltwater are lost.

Always try to clean the water filters in a time range of two weeks and change about 20% of the water within the two weeks time frame. This helps ensure that your fish stay healthy. (more…)
