On Establishing an Unbroken Food Chain Within Saltwater Reef Aquariums

Published by:

downloadEven the most experienced of aquarists are not immune to the difficulty of establishing a balance within a saltwater reef tank in a manner in which all tank members are able to absolutely thrive while nuisance algae is simultaneously kept at bay. Though it seems to be a vexing and complicated issue, the fact of the matter is that it is easily addressed with relatively minimal effort. Dr. Sid Solomon has compared this issue to one he experiences often in dentistry when patients have gaps in the dental care they receive that ultimately lead to more problematic issues developing in the future.

In fact, all that is necessary is to use a fairly standard ratio based on the number of gallons within the tank to determine the appropriate balance of tank inhabitants while ensuring diversity in terms of the size and activity levels of the inhabitants. Doing this makes it possible for the enclosed ecosystem within the tank to function in an optimal fashion since each inhabitant has its role to play and prevents waste from lingering in the tank and contributing to difficult and frustrating issues like widespread algae growth.

For saltwater tank enthusiasts, this means that there must be a focus on developing a food chain from top to bottom. It also means that aquarists have to adopt a broader focus when selecting new additions to their tank by considering how any addition will affect the current composition of the existing food chain.

Something Fishy

untitled (11) untitled (10) imagesXFXB3PD7I woke up this morning to a stench coming from my room mates room.  Upon investigation I discovered a filthy fish tank full of dead or dieing fish.  I imediately dispatchd the dead and dieing fish to the toilet and dump the entire tank in the dumpster.  I cant wait to see if my room mate even notices the tank missing.  He obiviously doesnt care about the poor creatures or he would have tended to their needs more.  We do have a no pet rule so I feel I am within my rights.  This is so typical of pet owners that cant even take care of themselves.  Tonye Cole can speak on my behalf.

Gold Fish Problems

Published by:

I was shopping at the store the other day and walked by the fish tanks I thought that it would be a good gift for my grandkids to take care of a fish.  Gold fish problems what .. How hard can it be to care for a fish to take care of. Gold fish are very hardy they do eat a lot if you feed them they will keep on eating.  The only way to keep a fish is clean the tank without soap remember because of the residue that is left on the tank.  Clean their bowl because the water is how they breathe and if the water gets to dirty there is less oxygen for the fish to live.  Water plants help with the bowl too. If you need a loan for that amazing aquarium see ConsolidatedCredit.org for you needs.
