Tip of the Day – 6/19/2013


Hobbyists generally keep aquariums because they can be very relaxing. The soft trickling of the water and slow paced movements of the fish just seem to help wash away all of the stresses of your day. That said, aquariums can also induce a great deal of stress. Initial setup of the system takes a lot if hard work, planning, and money. After the tank has been filled with various marine animals, it then becomes more stressful because you have the added pressure of keeping the fish and corals happy and healthy. Add in a fairly rigorous maintenance routine and you’ve got yourself an expensive way to raise your blood pressure. In all of that, don’t lose sight of why the aquarium was set up in the first place. Don’t let your hobby be ruined by money, stress, and anything else. Keep it light and fun, and you will enjoy it for many years to come.
