It is vital to have sufficient knowledge about the fish you plan to buy
and keep as pets, as this will help you keep them alive for as long as
possible. At Living Art Aquatic Design, Inc., we ensure your fish stand
the best chance at survival after you bring them home. Here are five things
you should know about keeping fish:
1. The Aquarium
Many people do not realize that even though fish are amphibians, they need
their own space too. Similar to all other creatures, an excessive number
of fish should not be cramped into one, small space. The size of the fish
tank or aquarium should be selected carefully. If you are unsure about
the size of the aquarium, consult with a professional at Living Art Aquatic
2. Keep Your Fish Healthy
Healthy fish are more likely to reproduce and be happier in general. There
are a few signs that can help you determine whether your fish is healthy
or unhealthy. The signs of a healthy fish are that they are active and
attentive with no evident sores, and clear, alert eyes.
3. Choose the Correct Food
If you have a variety of fish in the aquarium, you will need a variety
of food as well. Fish are sensitive and can easily die if fed incorrectly;
and, just like humans, they need a diet that is rich in protein as well.
Keeping the fish tank clean and free from ammonia and dirt can really help
lengthen the lifespan of any fish you keep as pets. Most people get water
cleaning nets for this purpose.
5. Good Water Pump
Pay close attention to the water pump installed in your fish tank. In addition
to keeping the tank clean, installing a good water pump will also promote
a healthier life for your fish.
