What you need to know for a beginner aquarist
The aquarium is a big and serious hobby, so before you start doing this you need to weigh all the pros and cons.
So, let's begin. What is needed in order to start a fish? First, you need an aquarium, for a small aquarium you will give about 400 - 500 rubles. Secondly, you need soil, it costs no more than 50 - 70 rubles. Thirdly, you should take a compressor, which must have a filter, for this miracle you will give somewhere 700 rubles. We also need a thermometer - 30 rubles, a feeder - 10 rubles, a plant - from 30 rubles.
Finally we got to the fish. The cheapest and unpretentious - this is of course guppies. They are quite beautiful for their price, and their price is about 25 - 40 rubles. It is advisable to take somewhere 2 - 3 fish for a start. So the minimum price will be 1270 rubles, I won’t be surprised if you find it all and for 900 - 1100 rubles.
The beginning is there. Next you need to filter or defend the water for 3 days. The water temperature for the guppy is about 17-23, otherwise you need a heater, it costs about 150-200 rubles. I advise you to be careful: fish do not like temperature changes, so before you release them into the aquarium, immerse the container in which you brought them into the aquarium and open it when the fish get used to the temperature of the aquarium, they will swim out by themselves. In no case do not dump them.
Feed the fish is 1 to 2 times a day for a small amount of food, it can be determined in the following way: pour the food gradually until the fish stop eating it until it begins to fall on the ground. (feed price - 15 rubles per month).
The compressor filter should be cleaned once a week.
If green growths appeared on the walls of the aquarium, then they can be removed with an old toothbrush (rinse it necessarily).
Water does not need to be completely replaced; it needs to be added as it evaporates.
