Tip/ Trick of the day

The purpose of this thread is for all of us to contribute some form of advice each day. There's no limit as to how many members can provide a tip or trick. However, a single member may not contribute more than once a day.

Tip: If you want to keep floating plants with goldfish, use a species that grows quickly or your goldfish may eat the roots.

When in doubt, do a water change

Tip: Never add a fish thinking it will completely eliminate your algae problem or feed on fecal matter.

Never rush a water change (sigh).

Don't add more fish than your bioload can handle. Allow time for it to adjust to new additions or there could be very adverse effects.

Learn all the why's and wherefores concerning the biological process' involved and how/what is needed, then use your intelligence, imagination and common sense rather than just blindly following others advice. There are no rules written in stone.
You will have much better success in the long run and a more fulfilling experience.

Don't over feed. Remove any uneaten food to keep parameters in check.

Never buy a fish unless you have done research on it. I definitely made this in my early years

Water test kit (liquid based) - so useful. Establish a baseline for your tank and change water. Monitor as needed or if anything changes in the tank
