How to keep puffer fish?

  1. Provide a more suitable environment for keeping pufferfish, and provide different water temperatures according to different fish types.

Tropical fish are extremely sensitive to temperature, and if the temperature is not suitable, they will die soon. Different types of tropical fish have different requirements for water temperature. The water temperature of most tropical fish is 20℃~24℃, and the water temperature for breeding is 25℃~28℃. The temperature difference between day and night should not exceed 4℃.

  1. Right PH level, a working cycling system, and a biosystem.

The artificial breeding of tropical fish requires soft water or low-hardness water, and the PH is weakly acidic or neutral.

A certain amount of aquatic plants should be planted in the aquarium because aquatic plants produce oxygen through photosynthesis, which increases the oxygen in the water. At the same time, timely removal of dirt and frequent water changes can also increase the dissolved oxygen in the water.

  1. Clean the fish tank regularly, because, after a long time, there will always be some dirt hidden in the corners of the fish tank.

The fish tank should not always be in the sun, because under long time exposure, a lot of algae will grow in the fish tank, which will make the water in the tank worse.

  1. Put more small fish for the ornamental fish to eat.

Giving too much fish food feed will make the water quality of the fish tank worse, so it is better to feed the small fish instead.

  1. Light

Place the fish tank in a sunny room. If the fish tank is placed in a room without sunlight, the light should be used to illuminate the water plants. Light can make tropical fish grow faster and make the fish more colorful.

  1. Stocking

Tropical fish are raised in tanks, and the stocking density depends on the size of the tank. For those who are raising fish for the first time, the smaller the density, the better, and an air pump is also required. For the collocation of fish in the same tank, quiet fish cannot be polycultured with aggressive fish; large fish cannot be polycultured with small fish.

There are many options for tropical fish food, such as fish insects, bloodworms, or packaged food suitable for different types of tropical fish. Both raw bait and live bait should be washed to control the source of the disease.
