Tip of the Day – 3/18/2013


When relocating your aquarium to a new home, it should go without saying that the livestock has top priority. When transporting the fish, corals, and invertebrates, be sure to keep them out of the sun and put them inside of your new residence as soon as possible. Even if they are in buckets, the air temperature inside of a home will be far more consistent than the air outside, which means the water holding your delicate marine life will also stay at a fairly steady temperature. Also keep the water oxygenated. Use air bubblers to keep the oxygen content in the water elevated, which will help the already stressed fish. Only after the tank has been set back up should the fish be added. You might have to wait several hours for this fish transfer to occur, but by taking your time, you could prevent a complete loss of livestock.
