Acclimating Fish To Their New Home Tank Is The Most Common Cause Of Fish Deaths (Nsfw
Acclimating fish to their new home tank is the most common cause of fish deaths. New fish should be put in a separate tank for two weeks. This allows you to observe the fish for disease or other problems without risk to your other fish in the main tank. Prepare the tank by testing pH, ammonia and chlorine levels. Chlorine and ammonia must be zero. Turn off the light in the aquarium to reduce stress on the new fish. Add a small amount of food to distract the current fish from the new aquarium.
