Let’s consider the inventory that is necessary for every aquarist and without whom it is simply impossible to imagine normal care for an aquarium.
First of all, it should be clarified that if you have more than one aquarium, then the equipment must be sterilized each time so as not to endure the disease. But it is much easier to have a separate inventory for each tank.
The net, perhaps the most basic inventory aquarist. With the help of a net for an aquarium, it will be convenient for you to fish for relocation or when cleaning the aquarium. There are many situations in which it is sometimes necessary to catch a fish from an aquarium.
It is more convenient when several nets and they are of different sizes.
Scrapers for glasses, are necessary for cleaning of aquarium glasses from the algae plaque formed on them. There are a lot of scrapers now, but the most popular ones are magnetic, because they allow you to clean the aquarium without disconnecting the extra equipment or even lifting the aquarium covers.
Bucket, preferably plastic or enameled. It is useful to you for draining old water, settling water and topping up fresh water in the aquarium.
Siphon, is used to clean the bottom of the aquarium and the soil from the waste products of fish, from not eaten food, etc.
A small aquarium, it will be used to quarantine newly purchased fish or for jigging and separate treatment of sick fish from a common aquarium.
Tweezers, preferably long, with it you can lift various objects from the bottom of the aquarium without wetting your hands.
Feeders, they will prevent the spread of food throughout the aquarium and its rotting in different hard-to-reach places in the aquarium. Using feeders will allow you to keep the water clean much more time, and as a result the fish will be more healthy.
