Caring For Your Fish

Fish are a pet which do require a lot of care. I for one was mistaken and thought fish would be an easy starter pet. For the most part they are, however there is lots of things you need to do with them! Before you even purchase any fish or a tank you need to make sure you conduct loads of research. Decide what kind of fish you would like, how much space they need and if they are all compatible with each other. Once you have figured all this out and you have brought your desired tank, you will need to cycle your tank. It is important to do a fishless cycle as this ensures no fish are harmed. When you being adding your fish it is a good idea to add them on breed at a time, and give them time to get used to their new home. Finally, you will need to complete weekly water changes to ensure your tank is clear of ammonia and kept to a high standard.
