NEW AQUARIUM SET UP WITH ORGANIC AQUA

August 29, 2017

  

14 steps on how to safely set up a new aquarium with Organic Aqua

  1.  Purchase the Organic Aqua Aquarium Water Quality kit (according to your specific tank capacity 1-20L; 20-60L; 60-100L; 100-250L or 250-500L) 

  2. Ask the store assistant for the guidance on purchasing a new tank with the needed accessories and the correct filter (please do NOT buy a charcoal based filter or one that contains carbon as these filters are suitable to use with chemical products only and unnecessary with biological products -  it removes all the beneficial microbes out of your water and can disturb the aquatic balance created with Organic Aqua)

  3. Once you have arrived back home, grab a drink and immediately start working on your aquarium set-up as it is not good for the fish to stay too long inside the transit bag, due to dangerous toxin build up

  4. Wash your aquarium, the accessories, pipes and the filter thoroughly under running water. Rinse the gravel stones under running tap water until the white milky appearance disappear

  5. Set up the aquarium with the air stone, pump and filter in the desired place (flat surface and not in direct sunlight or close to a window) do not move your aquarium once filled with water, as it can crack

  6. Add the needed accessories; gravel, ornaments & plant the aquatic plants

  7. Fill it slowly with tap water half way and readjust the ornaments (if needed) and make sure that the plants are still planted

  8. Fill with water

  9. Adjust the temperature according to your fish specie and do NOT add the fish until the water is the right temperature (boil water to adjust it quicker before you add the tropical fish)

  10. Now treat the water with the Organic Aqua Water Care to remove all the harmful chlorine and heavy metals, to increase the nitrification and protect your fish pets against the harmful nitrogen cycle

  11. Empty the two containers, Fish Care & Filter Activator

  12. PLACE THE TRANSIT BAG INTO THE AQUARIUM TO FLOAT ON THE SURFACE OF THE WATER FOR 5-10 MINUTES

  13. Now it is the time to release your pet fish into their new organic home! Open the bag carefully, turn it onto the side and allow the water from the aquarium to slowly flow into the bag. The fish should start swimming out automatically

  14. Feed your fish 

 

Enjoy your new hobby and remember to add a quarter bottle of the Water Care weekly and once the bottle is completed, you will know that the following week your aquarium is due for a 25% water change, a good siphoning of the under layer and to reapply another Aquarium Water Quality Kit.

Remember: CHANGE WATER ONLY EVERY 4TH WEEK! (25% water) 

Combine the Water Quality Kit with the Organic Aqua Oxy Aquatic to increase dissolved oxygen levels and prevent disease.

Organic Aqua Oxy Drops is great to keep the dissolved oxygen levels stable during load shedding (power cuts).

 

Happy organic fish keeping :)
