Feeding Fish

rams live arrivedIt’s been said that keeping an aquarium provides relaxation. There have been scientific studies done that show looking at an aquarium lowers blood pressure and calms the nerves but most importantly----it’s fun!

It’s fun to watch the fish interact with each other in their environment. It’s fun to collect different kinds and colors of fish. Also, at the top of the fun list ---- FEEDING THE FISH! Who hasn’t dug deep into their pockets for change to put in the “food dispensing machines” at the zoo and aquarium in order to feed the animals?

Taking Care of Your Fish During a Power Outage

Without power there is not much that can be done with filtration on the aquatic system.

The fish and animals if not overloaded in the aquarium should be okay, for a few days filtration wise. Do not feed the fish or do any cleaning of the aquarium as this can add to the overload of the filtration system.

The most important immediate concern for the fish in the aquarium is gas exchange, oxygen in and carbon dioxide out. This occurs in the aquarium at the water surface. Moving the water at the surface increases the surface area and thus increases gas exchange.

Battery Operated PumpsThis can be created manually by using a bucket. Put holes in the bottom of the bucket and position the bucket above the aquarium. Fill the bucket with water from the aquarium and allow it to drip/splash back into the aquarium creating increased surface movement and increased gas exchange, oxygen in and carbon dioxide out. How often should the bucket operation be performed? The fish will tell you. When they need oxygen, they will go to the surface and hang there “this is where the greatest concentration of oxygen is located”. At this point, perform the bucket operation.

Other options are the purchase a battery powered air pump. This will bubble and allow the surface of the water to agitate. Another option would be to run a battery operated fan and have it blow across the surface, again to cause agitation. The surface agitation allows carbon dioxide to be released and oxygen to be absorbed.
