Choosing Your Home Aquarium Fish
Necessary Supplies for Your Home Aquarium
In addition to your home aquarium fish, you'll also need a few supplies in order to keep them healthy and happy. These include:
- Water Treatment
- Aquarium Lights
Acclimating Your Fish in Your New Home Aquarium
Now that you've gathered all the necessary supplies, it's time to add your fish to their new home aquarium. The acclimation process is important in order to help your fish adjust to their new environment and reduce stress. To acclimate your fish, simply float them in a bag of water from their tank for 15 minutes. After this, you can slowly add small amounts of water from their new home aquarium to the bag until it is full. Finally, release your fish into their new tank and watch them swim away!
