For those who want to start , the types of freshwater fish are the most recommended. Before starting a Planted Aquarium, it’s good to know what factors you should bring together.
When you start this activity, the fishkeeping, the desire is to place the greatest number of fish, with the most different existing species. Get to know all the factors you should know about this topic.
Ciano Care – Find out now all the maintenance you should do for Water, Fish and Plants.
Daily, if you have species that require it, check the water temperature with the thermometer, and remember to always place it away from the heater so as not to tamper with the results. Know now the care you should take with Water, Fish and Plants.
Every 15 days, check the visual appearance of the water, the development of algae and measure the water parameters with Water Test Strips and if you find anything anormal, follow the Curative Treatment.
Then check your fish in detail (rapid breathing, anormal behavior, wounds, spots, ETC…)
Every 15 days, also check that the plants do not have parasites, stems and fragile leaves or yellowish leaves.
Every 30 days do a 25% partial water change and add Water Conditioner to prepare the water you will add to the aquarium.
Every 60 days change the Fish Protection Dosator.
Also change, if you have, your Plants Protection Dosator to provide the nutrients needed for plants to grow strong and healthy.
Never exceed these recommended daily hours as this can cause algae to appear, and never place the aquarium near a source of sunlight.
Algae can cause great damage to plants if left unchecked. They grow the same way as the plants in your aquarium, with water, light and nutrients.
Algae problems begin to occur when there is a lack of maintenance in the aquarium.
Overgrowth occurs when there is a lot of light and decaying materials.
Every 140 days replace the Water Bio-Bact Cartridge, to ensure that we have bacteria for the rapid elimination of toxic substances, as with this product we can decompose ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, fish excretions and other residues, to ensure a good and effective biological filtration.
Water turbidity can usually be resolved as follows:
Add Water Clear & Protection after confirming all previous steps. When the turbidity disappears from the water add Water Bio-Bact liquid.
Excess algae is usually associated with:
It can usually be resolved as follows:
After measuring the water parameters with Water Test Strips, do you verify that the parameters are out of reference?
If yes, which ones?
Nitrites | Nitrates
After 24 hours retest the parameters with the Water Test Strips.
Symptoms include white spots on the surface of the fish’s body, wheezing (if they settle in the gills) and, itching or irritation, tending to rub the body on rocks and other aquarium accessories.
This disease is almost always associated with the introduction of contaminated fish or accessories in your aquarium. Still, this disease manifests itself when fish have a weakened immune system, due to sudden changes in temperature and/or pH, or when there is an excess of ammonia and nitrites in the water.
We recommend that you look for the right product together with your fish seller. For the prevention and strengthening of the immune system we recommend Fish Protection Dosator.
When they have parasites, fish tend to lose energy and become practically quiet, even eating as if they were healthy. Mucus usually appears on the fish’s body, and in some situations you can see the worms leaving the body.
The respiratory system goes through a process of acceleration and itching is also again indicated in the symptoms of this problem.
We recommend that you look for the right product together with your fish seller. For prevention and to have an antiparasitic barrier in your fish, we recommend the use of Fish Protection Dosator.
As for diseases caused by the exacerbated proliferation of bacteria, one of the main symptoms is tissue rot, and you may notice the presence of white spots in this region, evolving into inflammation until tissue degeneration.
Common in goldfish, the presence of bacteria also causes a problem in the fish density balance organ (the bladder), this causes a deficiency in the way the fish swims, sideways or belly up .
White or yellowish secretions, inflammation on the skin surface, bleeding and loss of scales, decomposition of the membranes, swollen belly and eyes as well as fish not swimming properly are the main symptoms.
We recommend that you look for the right product together with your fish seller. For prevention and active defense against parasites and bacteria we recommend Fish Protection Dosator.
The diagnosis of diseases in plants is always at the level of yellowish or gnawed leaves, stems and very fragile and parasitic leaves.
We recommend that you search, together with your Plant seller, for the appropriate product.
For the supply of important nutrients for the growth and evolution of plants, we recommend the Plants Protection Dosator consisting of some of the most important macronutrients and micronutrients for plants.
