Tip of the Day – 6/11/09

2

If you plan to go away for a summer vacation, make sure you have someone come in every couple of days to check your aquarium. Lay out a list of very specific tasks that the babysitter should do during their visit and be as clear and step-by-step as possible. Tell them where things are located, how much of an item to put into the tank, how to top-off your aquarium, and so on. Don’t assume that the babysitter knows what he/she is doing.

    "Don't assume that the babysitter knows what he/she is doing." Agreed!

    I came home from my honeymoon to find dried up mysis shrimp all over the center brace when I had my 90 gallon aquarium. Not too bad, but a messy and stinky cleanup.
