Freshwater Tropical Aquarium Fish - Tips for Their Care

Freshwater tropical aquarium fish tend to be easier to care for successfully than marine or saltwater aquarium fish.

Setting up the Tank

The secret to success with a new set-up is to be patient. You cannot buy a new aquarium, load it with fish and hope for the best. A new aquarium needs time to build up "good" bacteria to deal with the waste products of the fish. Know the basic rules, take it slowly and you will be rewarded in the end.

1. Select the size of your freshwater tank based on the space you have and the time you have to care for the tank and the fish.

2. Buy the tank; water pump and heater; sand or gravel; rocks or logs or ornaments for aquarium decorations; plants, either live or plastic; water conditioner and Ph test kit, but no fish yet!

3. Set up the aquarium away from direct sunlight. Wash the gravel or sand and tip carefully into tank. Arrange ornaments, rocks etc. Tip - have the gravel higher at the back of the tank and arrange ornaments out towards the sides for the best look.

4. Fill two-thirds with tap water, add water conditioner and run the pump and heater for 5 to 7 days, until the water clears and is no longer cloudy. You are now ready to buy a few fish and fish food.

Do not be tempted to add fish before the water is crystal clear. The fish will probably die.

Feeding and care of tropical fish

Be guided by the specialist staff at your aquarium centre as to the type of tropical fish to start with and what type of feed to give them. Start with a few small, hardy fish; after a week or two, when they have settled in, you can add a few more. Do not over-crowd the tank - this will cause fighting and disease.

Feed once a day, just enough that the fish consume it in a few minutes. They will tell you they are hungry several times a day, but be strong - more fish die from being over-fed than being starved!

The aquarium will need to have a water-change periodically, once or twice a month. This depends largely on the number and type of fish you have. Never change more than one third of the water at a time, as you will change the environment. Take out a third of the water, clean the inside and outside of the glass, add water conditioner and refill the tank with water. You can also re-arrange the ornaments at this time if you want.
