What is a new aquarium syndrome? The answer was obvious

Hello to all the readers and subscribers of this aquarium blog. I am glad to see you again on the pages of my online diary and I have another publication for you.

The topic of the article will be somewhat unusual, but nevertheless, all aquarists have encountered this problem and I simply can’t explain it, sorry 🙂 But before I start talking directly about the topic, I have to apologize for the delay in publishing a new material on the blog.

The fact is that since I live in my house, and the work here is not small, so it was necessary to take time to pull up the housework. Unfortunately, nobody is insured against household chores and I hope that you will not be very angry with me. So, now let’s go back to the article.

We will talk about such an interesting thing as the syndrome of a new aquarium. Yes, it happens 🙂

I give 100,500% that everyone met with a similar thing when starting a new aquarium. There were even cases when novice aquarists, after an unsuccessful attempt to get a fish, would forever throw this idea out of their heads and never return to this topic. But the most interesting is that there is nothing difficult in launching an aquarium, and who does not know how to do this, please read this post.

Just when you start a new aquarium, you must follow some rules and nothing else supernatural. Adhere to these moments, which I will now voice, and you will be happy – your bank will shine with its magnificence 🙂

What the hell is this, a new aquarium syndrome?

The syndrome of a new aquarium is poisoning of aquarium fish with such harmful chemical matters, such as nitrites and ammonia. Sometimes this happens when replacing too much water in an aquarium and for several other reasons.

How does this affect the fish? If you take a closer look, you will notice a lack of oxygen for the fish, as a result of which they will have difficulty breathing, they will jump out of the aquarium if it is not covered with a cover glass. In addition, you will be able to notice this case on the violation of coordination of movements, the integrity of the gills will be broken, the fish will be weakened and sluggish.

By these signs, you can notice the syndrome of a new aquarium.

And the thing is this: not all beginning aquarists know that a newly launched aquarium is simply unsuitable for life. Yes Yes exactly. Let’s follow the launch sequence: you laid the primer on the bottom of the aquarium, placed stones and other decorations on it, stuck the thermostat, filter and compressor.

Then you fill it with water and let the tour fish. So, all that I have listed should be done, with the exception of the last item – launching the fish into the aquarium.

Once again, no fish and plants in the just-launched aquarium.

And the reason is that when you start the aquarium, it is not suitable for the life of aquatic organisms. A newly launched aquarium should stand for a while without fish and plants, so to say, “insist” 🙂 Before you settle in a jar of aquatic organisms, wait until biological balance is established in the aquarium. This mysterious thing is installed not only in the aquarium itself, but also in the aquarium filter.

So to say, it is colonized by microorganisms, which will subsequently filter the aquarium water at a biological level, which is very necessary and useful.

As a rule, the biological equilibrium in aquarium filters is established in two to four weeks. During this time, you will witness the clouding of the water, and then its purification and it will become like a tear.

A very common mistake for newbies is that when they see muddy water, they immediately take the hose and let’s pump out the water and replace it with fresh water. This can not be done in any case, just in the aquarium the process of establishing a balance has begun.

During the installation of biological equilibrium, in the aquarium the level of ammonia and nitrite rises sharply, and then, in the future, it will drop to the minimum level. If you have special tests for the level of nitrite and ammonia, then you can easily follow this process. Such tests you can easily purchase at pet stores.

These are the main causes of the new aquarium syndrome. A similar problem may arise if you replace too much water, as you break biological balance.

What are effective methods for eliminating the new aquarium syndrome?

– use of zeolite in filters, which will lower the level of ammonia in the water;

– Replace the water in several large parts, so you reduce the level of harmful substances in the aquarium;

– if you have such an opportunity. Seed all the fish from such an aquarium in a jar with a lower content of this filth.

For the purpose of prophylaxis, maintain a newly launched aquarium without inhabitants until it reaches biological equilibrium and control, if possible, the level of the above-mentioned harmful substances. Yes, I almost forgot.

Do not leave the aquarium filter off for a long time, as the filtering material may rot, and the bacteria that live in it will die.
