Aquarium Glass Replacement

Folks still interested in creating marine aquariums, may rely on the artificial salt water. It is purchased in salts, packaged and compounded, which needs fresh water for usage. Dissolve the salt in the water and let it dissolve for a couple of days. After it is dissolved, filter the water before in troducing the water inside the aquarium.

SALINITY CONTROL:

Fish that dwell in marine aquariums are sensitive to the level of salinity in the water. Through evaporation most of the water is lost. The water evaporated is pure, meaning that the minerals dissolved with the water in the aquarium are left behind as a residue, therefore increasing their level over the amount of water. In order to replace the water lost, it must be replaced with distilled water or tap water that has aged for about a week.

pH VALUE:

The pH scale ranks from 0 to 14 levels of acidity, 0 being the highest level of acidity and 14 the base. Therefore making 7 neutral. The pH value for sea-water is 8.4, but for marine aquariums should be between 8 to 8.3 To measure the pH value of the aquarium a pH meter could be used, but it may not be available at the aquarium store therefore, using color dyes and chemicals would be an alternate in testing the pH value.

An unbalanced diet initiates diseases in the fish. The liver, the body's distoxification organ may be infected and malfunctioning therefore, not getting rid of toxics. The fish is caused to lose weight or gain fat. This means that a fat fish may be dying of malnutritrition. The fish's eating habits should be observed to see if it eats. If they appear to be normal, then an intestinal blockage is causing the fish's excessive weight. An effective treatment would be, to place a small drop of mineral or vegetable oil with a dropper into the mouth.
