Aquarium Lights and Temperature

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

aquariumOne of the simplest but most important things in maintaining a fresh water aquarium is to keep it at the proper temperature. So what should the water temperature be in a fresh water aquarium? That depends on what type of fish you are keeping. ¬†For typical fresh water fish, the temperature should be between 70 and 78 degrees. ¬†There are some other fish that require higher or lower temperatures. For Beta’s, the temperature should be a little higher, between 75 and 80 degrees. Goldfish should live in water that’s a bit colder, around 68 degrees. Blind cave fish can take temperatures between 63 and 75 degrees.

The key is to keep the temperature consistent. Temperature fluctuations can kill fish or cause diseases. Set the heater at the proper temperature and wait until the water reaches that temperature before adding fish.

As for the lighting, keep the aquarium light on between 10 and 12 hours per day.

puppyhomeIt’s very important n not to jump to conclusions when it comes to adopting a dog. So before you buy the dog bed ,dog food, dog leash, dog toys, STOP and, ask yourself the following 10 questions.

  1. What’s the best breed for our lifestyle?
  2. Will we have the time to give the dog the proper training?
  3. Will there always be someone around to walk and feed the dog?
  4. Are the children old enough to be given the responsibility of caring for a dog?
  5. We will have the time to care for the dog? Are we away too much?
  6. Who will care for the dog if we are away?
  7. Can we afford the extra expense?
  8. Is our yard large enough and secure enough for the dog to play outside?
  9. Are we home enough? Dogs get lonely and like to have people around.
  10. Are we getting the dog for the right reasons? (Not just because our child wants one.)
    Seriously, ask yourself these questions before you decide to adopt a dog.
