Taking care of tropical fish, such as the Flowerhorn cichlid fish, for example, can be tricky. It is because most of the tropical fish require certain methods different from the methods to take care of other kinds of fish. That is why if you want to have tropical fish, it is important for you to know how to take care of it, including how to make the right aquarium for the fish.
There are several tips that can help you make the aquarium your tropical fish and they are as follows:
First, you need to determine the exact location. When you prepare the aquarium, you should put it in a location that will not cause stress for the fish. You need to avoid locations where fish will be exposed to noise, such as near a television or sound system or near a washer and dryer, etc. Locations that will affect water temperature, for example near heaters, radiators, or cooling units are also not good.
You should also need to avoid locations that will cause vibrations in fish, such as a place close to a door that is often opened and closed or a place where people often paced. Do not place an aquarium in places exposed directly by natural light sources, such as glass roofs or windows, as it can increase algae production and disrupt the ecosystem balance in an aquarium. And, do not place the aquarium in a potentially windy place, such as near a door or window.
At last, you should also remember to install a high-quality filtration system. The case where an excessively filtered aquarium is almost impossible, so it is better if the aquarium is filtered more rather than if it is not filtered properly. If the aquarium is not filtered adequately, the aquarium will become dirty a lot faster and it can even endanger the fish in it.
