General maintenance

One of the most important aspects to fish keeping is regularity of the up keep of water quality and the maintenance of appliances to assure that. Pumps are all too often only fixed when broken, however the regular attention would prevent such situations from occurring. Having a professional check your pump regularly would extend your pumps lifespan saving big dollars on new pumps.

All Pump manufacturers will state that warranty will not be grated if a pump has been maliciously used. This means it has not been used for the purpose it was intended for. A pump is intended to pump water freely at the rate specified. A blocked or calcified pump is not functioning at its usual rate as specified and can cause subdued unnecessary stress that shortens the pump s life span and voiding warranty.

It is advised to get your water feature appliances checked and tested so that you can be sure you are getting your value for money from your pump and your water stays in a healthy state.

Water Changes and Conditioning

The quality of water determines the health and the life that it can sustain. Oxygen and water are two major elements of life without one or the other no life would exist. The best way to bring life and health back to a water body is to consider what your intension is and what the limitations are. Often these limitations can be overcome by the used of appliances that manage the water quality and keep it within a nice healthy balance.

All water will slowly deteriorate in quality under various circumstances. This is why it is important to keep healthy environment water changes should be regularly carried out to reduce dissolved nitrogen and minerals that accumulate over time. It is recommended that ponds water should be changed out by 50% twice a year to keep it healthy and may be more frequent with high fish stocks. Aquariums generally need a water change every four to six weeks to keep organic wastes in control. Water features are best completely emptied at least once a year to prevent a build-up of calcium and other minerals from accumulating that can affect a pumps performance.

Health care and disease treatment

Once a fish becomes stressed from not being in its ideal environment it will become vulnerable to diseases. These diseases lurk within your water waiting for a unwell fish to infest. With good water quality there is a lesser risk compared to fish in bad water quality. Healthy fish become high risk when new fish enter their environment without being quarantined for disease, bringing with them disease that may “break out” and infect the healthy fish as they are not immune to the alien diseases.

Water Plant expertise

When Decorating an aquarium or pond green life adds an attractive finish and a natural look to the design. Selecting the right plants for the situation can be difficult depending on availability. The selection of so called weed plants often occurs as rarely information is given about the invasiveness of certain plants.

Marine water Deliveries

The water quality of oceanic seawater is unlike freshwater. The properties of salt are only part of the chain of minerals that make up seawater. Two methods are generally used to attain the right parameters required for a coral reef. There is the mix it yourself option using synthetic salt specially formulated to mimic the properties of seawater. This method is more costly and time extensive but assures accurate parameters are met once mixed. This method is usually mixed with reverse osmosis water to get best results as it eliminates the harmful chemicals that come with scheme tap water. The second option is purchasing raw natural seawater. This is a less controlled way of sourcing water but cheaper and no mixing is required. It is known that Perth local seawater is poor in certain trace elements and this water will always require dosing to elevate the buffer capacity of the water.
