Tip of the Day – 4/18/2013


If you’re doing work at your home that could threaten your aquarium, you might be better off moving the tank out of the home and into one of your friends’ places, or even a local fish store. Things like home remodels and pest treatments are never convenient for aquarium keepers, and the chemicals used in paints or pesticides may actually be harmful to your aquarium life. The dangers involved with a short-term project could possibly be worked around, but long-term projects present a whole other set of issues that will cause some issues. So, moving the tank out of the home may be the lesser of two evils, and if you don’t have friends willing to help out, we’ve seen fish stores temporarily hold and even care for complete aquarium systems of their customers.
