Aquarium Step-by-Step Guide

After you have purchased a new aquarium, installed it and bought all the necessary equipment, you are faced with the question of the first launch. There is no need to hurry in this matter, and everything should be done in order.

The first step is to rinse the ground well with tap water. It is better to do this operation several times until the water becomes perfectly clean, without turbidity and color change.

After washing, the soil should be distributed evenly across the bottom of the aquarium.

The next step is to install the equipment in the aquarium, because after the water is poured install will be a little more difficult. In addition, the equipment in the next stage can be closed with decorations.

It is necessary to fill the aquarium in the middle with water. So that the soil does not erode, you can put a small saucer on the bottom and pour water on it.

After the water has been poured to half – you can begin to place snags and stones in the aquarium. If this is done in the reverse order, then jets of water can dislodge them or make them unstable.

Now you can start planting aquarium plants. Gently press them into the ground with roots and sprinkle with soil to the point of growth.

After that you can completely fill the aquarium with water.

After you perform this operation, do not rush to put in the aquarium fish, because this water can be detrimental to them. For full “maturation” water will take at least 2 weeks.

This process can be accelerated if you pour some of the water from the existing aquarium, then the process of growth of beneficial bacteria in the aquarium will increase significantly.

Also currently sold special additives in pet stores that increase the rate of maturation of aquarium water. At the time of maturation of the water all the equipment must be turned on!

Populate the new aquarium with fish should be gradually, in the first week, a few pieces, then increase the number. If this is not possible, then at the first time after the settlement of fish should feed them a little, gradually increasing the diet.
