									DID YOU KNOW???

     To successfully
   maintain a Marine
aquarium, You MUST
run a Protein Skimmer
   to remove harmful
dissolved organics from
       your water!
    DID YOU KNOW???
   You MUST replace your
carbon in your filter every 4 –
6 weeks! Failure to remove old
  carbon can result in toxins
   leeching back into your
  aquarium, poisoning your
            fish!!!
    DID YOU
    KNOW???
Tap water kills all of the
good bacteria that reside
 in your filter that break
    down your fishes
         wastes.

   To maintain a healthy
    aquarium, and avoid
    ammonia and nitrite
  spikes, only wash your
filter media in a bucket of
   water siphoned from
  your aquarium!!!
 DID YOU KNOW???

 Using a gravel vacuum is
 an easy and efficient way
to carry out your fortnightly
      water changes.

  Not only does it help by
   removing old, polluted
  water from your tank, it
also helps by removing all
the detritus (fish poo!) that
is trapped in your gravel!!!



     (Ask us for a demonstration!)
DID YOU KNOW???
Aquarium light bulbs lose their
growing power over time, long
before the bulb actually blows!

  Ideally, to maintain healthy,
 rapid plant and coral growth,
your bulbs should be changed
            as follows;

        WHITE (plant):
       Every 12 months

        BLUE (coral):
       Every 6 months

         REPTILE:
       Every 6 months

      METAL HALIDE:
     Every 12-18 months

   COMPACT FLUROS:
    Every 12 months
         DID YOU KNOW???
  Fish are like people. You can put two people in
the same room and they may or may not get along.

 Although we try our hardest to recommend fish
 that are compatible, we can’t always guarantee
  that the fish you choose will get along in your
                 aquarium at home.

  Just remember, fish have personalities too!!!
   And just because ‘your mate did it’ doesn’t
     necessarily mean it will work for you!
                                      DID YOU KNOW??
           Overfeeding is one of the most common causes of ‘mysterious’ fish death in the home aquarium.

A lot of the time, the instructions on the back of the packet direct you to feed way too much food for your fish, which
                                  can result in bloating and severe water quality issues.

To avoid overfeeding you fish and seriously depleting your water quality, feeding should be only one person’s job, and
 the amount of food given should be limited to an amount that is TOTALLY CONSUMED by your fish in about 30
                              seconds (even if your fish still look hungry afterwards!).

  Although a great treat for your fish, Bloodworms are exactly that, a TREAT. To keep your fish healthy and happy,
                                 bloodworm should only form part of your fish’s diet.
