Information for tropical and cold water fish.
It is very important to get your tank or aquarium set up if you are thinking of having fish. Fish need bacteria to build up in the aquarium that will keep eating all the waste your fish produces and help your fish keep their ‘stress coat’. Many people introduce new fish to the aquarium too soon and this is when unexpected losses happen and common diseases occur.
You can speed up the bacteria process by using Tetra Aquasafe which contains live bacteria to help eliminate harmful substances in the water. You also need to treat your aquarium with Bio Active Tap Safe to help eliminate heavy metal chemicals present in tap water. We recommend that you do not give your aquarium a water change (even if the water is cloudy) for at least 4-6 weeks as the bacteria is only starting to become established. The bacteria will build up in the filter and the process of then water running through it will help to eliminate harmful nitrates and nitrite.
If your aquarium is large and contains a lot of fish you may have to change a small percentage of the water before the 6 week period.
We sell treatments for most common ailments and disease that are associated with fish.
For marine aquarium (salt water) information please seek advice from a marine fish specialist.
