Buying And Caring For Your Fish And Fish Tank
Buying The Fish
Your Fish & Aquarium Shop owner can give you the requirements of the
fish you want to purchase. Make sure that these requirements are met before
introducing your fish to the tank.
Always make sure that the fish you buy are well fed. They should look plump
and have no missing scales or be scarred. Active fish are usually in good
health. If the fish seems to be panting or if their fins are clamping, avoid
If you take them home in a plastic bag, leave the fish in the bag and place
the bag in the aquarium. Let it float there for thirty minutes then open
the bag and introduce some of the tank water. Let it float for another fifteen
minutes or so. This will help your new fish become accustom to the temperature
and the makeup of the tank water. Release the fish.
Remember, the less fish in a tank the better off your fish will be and the
easier it will be to manage. Not all fish are compatible, for various reasons.
Check with your Fish & Aquarium Shop owner and follow his suggestions.
