Salt Water Aquariums

Nitrates are quite common in saltwater fish aquariums and are caused by food, waste and deteriorating vegetation, forming algae. Increased levels of nitrates are bad for the fish and could harm them.

Nitrates are quite common in saltwater fish aquariums and are caused by food, waste and deteriorating vegetation, forming algae. Increased levels of nitrates are bad for the fish and could harm them.

There are a number of aquatic species that help keep nitrate levels low by consuming it such as hermit crabs and snails. However, the most common causes of high nitrate levels are over feeding, over crowding and neglect in keeping the tank clean. Your tank should be cleaned regularly, depending on the number of fish and the size of the tank.

Saltwater aquariums make such a nice addition to a room and it stands to reason that if you're going to invest in a saltwater aquarium, you would diligently maintain it. Murky, cloudy water is a sign of over feeding. It's tempting to tip that food container and watch them go for it. But the next time you are tempted when you know they've been fed enough, take a good look at the water. If it's murky, you're over feeding them.

In order to control nitrate levels, there are a number of things you might consider including:

* Use some type of filtering system
* Purchase aquatic species that eat algae.
* Change out about twenty-five percent of the water every seven to ten days.
* Put in plants
* Make sure your aquarium is large enough for the number of fish it contains.

Fish are not toys; they're living creatures and it's cruel to place them in an unfit environment. Jesus Christ loved the animals. He was born in a stable with animals and was known as the Lion of Judah, the Lamb of God, and the Good Shepard.

"A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel." (Proverbs 12:10)

Well, fish may not be considered "beasts," but they're still living creatures.

Nevertheless, some saltwater species are quite expensive so why take a chance? Keep the tank clean and invest in some type of filtering system. Tiny hermit crabs and snails make a cute little addition to your saltwater aquarium and will go a long way in helping to keep the nitrate levels down. If your aquarium is too small for the amount of species it holds, maybe it's time to move up to a larger one. Take care of them.
