01 Nov 2011 - Selecting healthy fish

Most of us especially new hobbyists don't use a quarantine tank for our new fish, this makes it especially important to make sure that only good healthy fish are purchased in the first place. Even though at a glance it may seem that all fish look the same there are ways to spot good fish and ones that should be avoided.

Setting up your new aquarium

The original article was written by Sacha a few years ago, thank you Sacha.
Unfortunately that full article has somehow disappeared so I have written a similar article which hopefully compliments what was written in the original article

Setting up your new aquarium

There are two major causes of fish deaths in an aquarium; new tank syndrome and over feeding.
If you take the time to read this you will hopefully not have to deal with new tank syndrome and you will create a healthy environment for your fish.
The other big cause of fish deaths is overfeeding, so be careful not to overfeed your fish.
There are other reasons for fish deaths and these can be addressed on the forum.

17 Oct 2008 - The Nitrogen Cycle

For most Fish keepers whether new or experienced in the keeping of fish in Aquariums this subject is of great importance. The maintaining of water conditions so our pets can live a good and healthy life is required. The first stage in any Aquarium is the setting up and maturing of the water. When the Aquarium is first filled with water the water should be treated to remove Chlorine and Chloramines. There are many products on sale for this purpose. If the water is not treated leave the tank to run for at least a week so that these gases can naturally dissipate from the water.

Now we can start to cycle the tank.

Whilst the fishless cycle is by no means, the be all, and end all, it is worth remembering that it is the most ethical and humane way of introducing fish, into your new aquarium.

Many fish from tropical areas have seasons when they spawn due to changes in their natural environment. Most often they spawn when the rainy season begins, because it brings increased food supply and increased possibility for the fry to find food and shelter. To try to re-create as many of the changes as possible that occur during the rainy season's beginning might be one way to spawn species that otherwise are very difficult to spawn. Many species are so easy to spawn you need not use these, in many cases cumbersome methods that are described below, but certain species and groups of species might need it. Begin with the general rules for breeding a certain species or group of species. If you don't succeed, try with the suggestions below.

I've noticed a bit of interest in the Marine section of late and thought it might be time to post a 'Sticky' on the subject of 'How to Start a Marine Tank'. That way allot of information will be in the one place, providing a reference to those wanting to expand into the Marine Realm.

So enough of the chit chat and lets get started.
