So you think you’re ready for your first fish?

More than any other kind of pet, fish are totally dependent on their owner for survival.

Before you race out and buy your first fish take a look at the checklist below and remember, keeping fish can be fun but it’s also a responsibility.

Tank: Set up properly, in a good stable location, away from direct sunlight and the heater. Gravel has been rinsed.

Water: Has been ‘conditioned’ with a hardener and a chlorine remover?

Filter: Is setup and running properly? The pump is providing plenty of aeration, (bubbles).

Temperature: If you are planning on keeping tropical fish, the temperature needs to be correct before you introduce the fish. Setup the heater at least 24 hours before putting your first fish in the tank and check the temperature on the thermometer regularly over the first couple of days.

Introducing Fish: When you buy your fish, try and get them home as quickly as you can. Fish can live quite a while in the bag but the less time they spend in there the better as it can be stressful to them. When you get them home, float the bag in the tank for about half an hour so the temperature in the bag is the same as that in the tank. Gently open the bag and let them swim out of their own accord.

Feeding: Don’t feed your fish the first day. Start feeding the second day, just as much as the fish will eat in a minute or two. Try not to feed too much, especially if the tank is new because there aren’t enough good bugs in the water to clean up the mess, yet.
