Water Quality is a Must
You’ll want to provide a healthy as well as beautiful environment for your new tropical fish. The most important factor is to keep the water sparkling clean and clear.
Bring on the Oxygen!
Did you know that bubbles do more than just add decoration to the tank? One of the keys to a healthy aquarium is water that is rich in oxygen. Bubbles “push” water to the surface and create circulation in the aquarium. So, not only do bubbles add a unique look to the tank, they add essential oxygen to the water.
Get Rid of the Gunk
We can recommend a filtration system that removes toxins and debris for the size of your tank and the kind of fish you’ve chosen. Pet Supermarket carries the right size filtration system for every aquarium.
Making Sure the Water’s Right
Tropical fish require water with specific biological conditions and a balanced pH level of acidity and alkaline. The quality of your aquarium’s water can be easily adjusted with water conditions and test kits available at Pet Supermarket.
Frequent water changes are essential to maintaining a healthy aquarium. We have the right tools to show you how to make water changes easy and convenient. We can also help you choose the proper conditioners and instruct you in their use. Plus we have informative books to help to learn more about fish’s needs and how to care for them.
The Right Temperature
Keep your aquarium out of direct sunlight. Tropical fish live comfortably at 78 degrees Fahrenheit—do not let the tank water deviate by more than 2 degrees in either direction. Keep your aquarium away from heating and cooling ducts.
Add Some Lights and a Heater
An aquarium heater with a thermostat is an important aid in maintaining proper water temperature and preserving the health of your tropical fish. We offer a variety of lighting options for our aquarium along with a range of light bulbs that promote healthy fish and plant growth.
Remember: at Pet Supermarket we’re committed to helping your fish thrive to give you hours of enjoyment!
