Potash in the aquarium

maintenance, care, compatibility

Do not forget that the aquarium is a real home for fish. He, like the human home, needs cleaning. If a person can provide himself with cleaning often, then this luxury is not available for fish, so the owner should be engaged in disinfecting the aquarium and monitoring the condition of their pets.

Many people know about it, but not everyone knows how to disinfect an aquarium correctly.

The first disinfection of the aquarium occurs immediately after you purchase the tank. The future home for fish must undergo a thorough treatment before the first inhabitants of the flora and fauna appear there.

How to carry out the initial disinfection:

  1. Fill the aquarium with plain water.
  2. Dilute the solution of potassium permanganate to a dark color and pour it into an aquarium filled with tap water.
  3. After that, leave it for a day. During this time, all pathogenic bacteria will die.
  4. Drain all the water and wipe dry the walls with a dry cloth.
  5. Rinse it several times with clean running water.

The next step will be the preparation of water for the launch of a new aquarium. To free chlorine out of the water, you must defend all 100% of the water for at least 3 days. Then pour and wait a couple of days.

Only after this water will be ready to accept the first inhabitants.

In order not to waste time, prepare the rest of the equipment and decor for your exclusive reservoir. Do not forget, they also need to be thoroughly disinfected before they end up in the same water as the fish. Particular attention is paid to the ground.

As it is most often used sea sand and pebbles collected in natural conditions. Of course, in the substrate collected a huge number of pathogenic bacteria that will poison the entire environment in the water. To defeat the negative consequences you need to ignite the soil in the oven or in a large frying pan.

Exposure to maximum temperature should be all the soil and at least 20 minutes. For convenience, divide it into portions. Do not put the hot sand in the aquarium!

Cool and rinse thoroughly. One washing is not enough, it is better to repeat the procedure 3-4 times, only after that you can put it in the aquarium.

Do not ignore this stage of the initial launch of the aquarium.

Among the mandatory elements of the normal functioning of an artificial reservoir are accessories. Collect all the elements of the decor, excluding plastic options and boil them thoroughly.

Since plastic parts can melt from heat treatment, it is better to process them with a dark solution of potassium permanganate.
