How-to set-up a home aquarium

as with any aquarium its all in the method !!

first think about the placement of the tank ? can I get to everything easily ? is there a power source close by ? whats already on that outlet? is there anything that water would damage by it getting on nearby ? and last but most important will the floor support its weight (this is the #1 thing that's forgotten most ) 8.33x40= 333 lbs !! and that's just the water !! the tank adds another 40 pounds and then think of the gravel , me id count on having about 500 pounds there for that size tank . remember the floor will need to remain steady with that weight on it (not springy) , its not uncommon to reinforce floor joists underneath a tank with steel beams !!!

if this is your first large tank id go slow and add only a few fish to start off , you'll be playing catch up with your water chem to get a "happy" point at first and it be a terrible shame to loose a ton of fish due to that !!

Cloudy water that stinks

1st priory is to save the fish !! move them to a new container consisting of half old water and half new water (declorinated) along with a small air bubbler !! this should help your fish to recover (don't use soap to clean out container it is toxic to fish) moist table salt is best to use for a cleaning agent and rinse well b4 putting fish inside

then ck to see if your aquarium is pumping water thru the filter and falling back into tank ( replace all the water in the tank 1st with two rinses ) make needed repairs to pump and or filter assembly (New filter cartridge) new pump impellers and cartridges are available for purchase for your aquarium from vendors that sell aquariums and allways ck the outlet the pump is plugging in b4 blaming a pump fail with a known good table light set to "On" they do go off once and an a while
verify that water chemistry is ok b4 retuning fish to tank and observe fish for strange behavior for next several hours ( upside down swimming, laying sideways )

Aquarium water is cloudy

This can happen and will generally clear with time, if you are concerned do a water change. I find that this treatment is more hassle than its worth, if you have a suitable filter seachem denitrate is a good alternative, or he aquarium pure balls.

How can I properly determine the amount of watts per gallon of lighting I need for my aquarium?

How many watts you need depends on the type of plants and the volume of the tank. Here is an excerpt from an article that will help you determine proper wattage.

Identify the species of plants you have in your tank or that you plan to put in your tank and how much light that species needs. Each species of plant will have an optimal lighting requirements, from low light to bright light. To determine the plant species, compare photos on the Aquarium Plants Photos and Profiles page of the Aqua Hobby website, or take samples of the aquatic plants to your local aquarium store for identification.

Write down how much lighting each of the plant species in your tank needs. Give each plant a rating of low, medium or bright. The books "The Complete Fishkeeper" and "Freshwater Aquariums for Dummies," as well as your local fish store, are good sources of information for this.

Review your list and determine what type of plant dominates your tank. For example, if you have mostly plants that need bright light, then use a bright-light formula. If you have an equal mix of plant lighting needs, then use a medium-light formula.

Calculate a range of watts of lighting you need for your tank with one of the following formulas, depending on the amount of light you determined you needed for your plants. For low light, multiply one and two by the number of gallons. For medium light, multiply two and three by the number of gallons. For bright light, calculate three and five by the number of gallons. For example, for a 20-gallon tank with plants that need medium light, you would get a range of 40 to 60 watts (2 x 20 = 40 and 3 x 20 = 60).

What kind of lighting do I need for my saltwater aquarium?

This depends on what you will be keeping in your tank. If there will be only fish, you will not need intense lighting. Usually, the fixture that comes with the aquarium should be sufficient. However, if you plan on keeping reef inside your tank you will need to consider your lighting options. The proper lighting in a reef tank will have considerable effect on coral growth and coloration. The main factors you need to take into consideration are light intensity, spectrum and tank inhabitants.

How to kil hydra

Things You'll Need:
  • Aquarium vacuum
  • Additional freshwater
  • Fish food
  • Commercial medication (optional)
  • Step 1:Vacuum the aquarium. Sweep the bottom of the tank with the vacuum to remove the hydra and a majority of their food sources. Use the aquarium vacuum as needed to keep the freshwater aquarium clean. This will prevent more hydra from appearing in your aquarium.
  • Step 2:Replace any lost water. Vacuuming the aquarium will pull out a fair amount of water. Replenish the aquarium with additional freshwater. Northern State University suggests using freshly collected pond water or rain water.
  • Step 3:Reduce the amount of food you feed the fish in the tank. Temporarily decreasing the amount of food will result in larger fish feeding on the hydra and eliminating a source of food for the hydra. If food is unavailable, hydra reproduction will cease and they will eventually shrink then die.
  • Step 4:Repeat these steps as necessary. Continue the three-step process until all signs of hydra are gone. Negligence in cleaning the tank or feeding the fish ample amounts will allow the hydra to feed as well, and thus rapidly reproduce. Continuing the steps is also a maintenance measure that will prevent additional hydra from developing in your freshwater aquarium.
Tips & Warnings
  • Aquarium-supply stores sell various medications that reportedly kill hydra.
  • The steps you take to kill freshwater hydra could also kill small fish in your tank. Prepare to lose some small freshwater fish fry in the process.
