Wait 24 hours after setting up your biOrb to add fish. The best advice is to take your time. Don’t be tempted to add too many fish too quickly. Remember that when you add a fish to an aquarium, the aquarium’s bacteria start to multiply to catch up with the waste they produce. Adding fish too quickly will cause high ammonia levels, poisoning the fish.
Take advice from enthusiasts. Chances are, your local aquatic store is run by enthusiasts. Get to know them. Quite often their knowledge of fish is encyclopedic and they’re usually a good source of help and advice. Consult with your local aquatics store to ensure the right fish are gently acclimated to their new home.
Add small fish gradually at a rate of 2 every 28 days. This encourages the growth of beneficial bacteria in the ceramic media that helps keep water clean.
Keep fish happy and healthy by keeping their home clean. Remember, good fish keepers look after the water, the fish look after themselves. Overfeeding will harm fish and cause the aquarium water to become polluted. Basic routine maintenance is simple to do and very important for the overall health of your biOrb.
