Freshwater fish is usually not as colourful as most saltwater fish, but they have
their advantages. Freshwater fish are easier to keep than saltwater fish because
they live in waters that are smaller in nature compare to marine. When the water volume is
smaller, the chemical composition and water quality changes easier. As a result, freshwater fish
are naturally more used to changes in the water character they are in, making them
more suitable to live in a relatively smaller environment such as a home aquarium.
Like the saying goes, 'a good start is half the battle's won'. This
couldn't be more true in aquaria.
|What to add to the water|
Many people like to add all kinds of
chemicals to the water. However, many of them just benefit the
seller, not the fish.
Here you can tell from the symptoms what your fish
As all living things live and die, sickness and diseases are part and parcel of life. In this section I will teach you how to recognise the most common fish diseases, as well as how to fight it. In most cases, your fish will get stronger and will gain increased immunity against future attacks.
This section will deal with breeding fish. If your fish has a short lifespan, you cannot make it live longer. However, you can extend its bloodline by breeding them raising the fry. This way, you can keep the family going for generations. However, note that this practise is not advisable for too sentimental people, because you may one day terminate the bloodline due to unforeseen circumstances or accidents. Expecially if you have bred the 'family' of fish for generations, a break may cause a tremendous feeling of lost.
