Tip of the Day – 12/26/2013


If you’re like most aquarists, then your family knows your obsession well and probably even contributed to it with plenty of aquarium gear as presents this year. While the initial excitement is a bit overwhelming, we encourage you to pause for a minute and consider how plugging all of those new toys into the electrical outlet will play out. If you already have a lot of stuff plugged in, then adding one or two items might just cause a breaker to trip, shutting down your entire aquarium and potentially even causing damage that could lead to a fire, or at the very least an expensive visit from an electrician. So, be mindful of your circuits and add new items to the tank one at a time.
