Next Day Delivery Explained

next day delivery does not mean the fish will arrive 24h after you have placed the order.

it is simply a term used to describe a service offered by the courier company.

if you order fish online they will be sent out asap, as we carry such a vast range of fish and inverts things may be out of stock from day to day and they have to be ordered in, this means we then need time to condition the fish before preparing them for delivery.

once the fish are in stock and healthy we then can ship them using the couriers “next day delivery” service.

the fish will arrive within 24h of being packed

but please be aware and understand that once the fish leave the shop what happens to them
is out of our control, we get a tracking number the same as you do.

we also must point out that our chosen courier has not yet let us down
we have had very few if any issues with delivering livestock.

Aquatic Village

delivery cost increase

an increase of delivery charge to €18.50 per box now applies.
please remember to keep the boxes and return them if possible
polyboxes are damaging to the enviroment so please re-use them
rather than despose of them.

New arrivals 07/12/2016

How many of you read our blogs? 07/12/2016

Hello,

We are always wondering do people actually read our blogs? We are determined to put more time in to communicating with people that would actually use our website as a resource.

If you are one of those people why not send us an email confirming this that indeed this could be something you are interested in.

Why do i ask?

Well i believe people are interested in stories and happenings as well as information on what we do professionally.

Getting the mix right is the secret though.

We work in the most interesting place in the business, did you know Aquatic Village is the longest serving specialist in the country today/

Yes indeed.

But in this cyber age we have come to realize that we need to reach out more because now our audience is the world and that world would really appreciate a tiny slice of what we do.

For instance yesterday i had to examine a customers fish, it;s eye to be exact….he had a goldfish with one orb swollen so badly it was literally hanging from the eye socket, to make matters worse it was covered in what proved to be fungus.

I had to cut a sample from the eye and under the microscope we found out why the fungus had taken hold and was doing so much damage…..can you guess why?

I will let you think about it for a moment.

…………………..Well?

 

Fish keeping is a science.

At Aquatic Village we are not guessers.

Unfortunately the trade is ruined by charlatans and guessers.

Fungus is an opportunist. It normally invades after a primary problem has done its damage. So finding fungus on a fish is more of an indicator rather than the main culprit for the condition.

Obviously water conditions have to be taken into account and once satisfied we can proceed. In this case the parameters were spot on…Ph crashes can be the culprit in many cases fish tend to display similar symptoms due to acidosis….lots of mucous production….fraying of the fins, blood vessels rupturing, general lethargy and most likely death…..i cannot stress the importance of the correct PH balance you must test your system at least once a week….this is how we communicate with our animals.

Anyway i am digressing….as usual.

The primary culprit turned out to be white spot.

That’s right.

And only on the eye.

Unusual to say the least.

But whitespot under a microscope is very easy to recognize the tell tale circular body with its insides wriggling with new life waiting to invade it’s defenseless victim……you guys are used to seeing the tiny white dots that pepper the fish but this is not always the case….this is why my customers bring their fish to me, we offer this as a free service…..my competitors would not know where to begin.

Anyway problem solved.

But in general i would like to make a little more time for sharing stuff like this with you, i do this on a daily basis.

I will post this up on forums and facebook and our website and if this is useful to you then by all means let us know by emailing us at info@aquatic-village.com .

Also you can include topics relevant to your fishkeeping and i will try to address them…..be it marine/coldwater/koi in particular/tropical i do not mind i have been doing this since i was 11 and i am 49 now so i think i can be the angel on your shoulder.

Thank you for your time,

aquatic village team,

Stocking your aquarium looking for ideas?

Hello there,

Are you bored with your aquarium set up?

Tired of the same old fish?

Are you looking for something different maybe even a little more colourful?

The list of fish available for the aquarium hobby is mind boggling…..literally thousands and thousands of fish to choose from.

Depending on aquarium size we can offer dwarf species  particularly Apistogramma species, this are dwarf cichlids from South America

apisto 1 apisto 2 apisto 3 apisto 4 apisto 5

Fabulous colours right?

Decent temperament, they like planted aquariums that give them plenty of places to hide and invariably if you provide one or two females they are relatively easy to breed.

A lot of the apistos found in the hobby are from captive bred sources so water quality is not as much of an issue, Ph 7 most will do well in, if your water is too hard remember we give away suitable water absolutely free of charge so make sure you ask next time you are in store.

Another favourite in the hobby with similar requirements is the German blue ram.

Take a look stunning isn’t it?

The others are the gold ram and the electric blue ram.

These are easy fish to keep trust me the problem is they are not your typical pet shop fish but you will find them in shops that specialize in fish like ourselves, and they make wonderful additions to your aquarium.

 

german blue ram electric blue ram

gold ram

If you are a little unsure as to the suitability for your aquarium why not email us and tell us what you have and we may be able to help you broaden your collection…..remember asking is the way forward and we are always delighted to help.

Cichlids as a whole is a very under appreciated genre of fish and no they are not all inherently aggressive……but people and misinformation have a way of tarring things much to the individuals losing out, the right fish in the right tank is the more obvious answer so that is where we can help.

We are the longest in the trade and our mission is to dispel rumor and innuendo in relation to fish keeping, do not be afraid to try something new just because shops cannot get them or else it is outside their expertise remember these fish exist and once they exist they have a part to play in the hobby its up to us to make sure they are cared for.

Their are care sheets available throughout the internet but the best way of learning is to call in to our store and find out first hand.

 

I will be doing little intros like this as often as i can just to broaden horizons a little, hopefully you might find this helpful we may broaden the subject a little in the days to come as to care etc so be patient with us.

 

Thank you for reading.

Marine fish invertebrates up date at Aquatic Village.24/11/2016

regal

 

Hello everyone,

Ian here, just to keep you informed as to our stocking levels and future schedules for our marine section.

I have been neglecting our marine section for quite a while there is no doubt about that, this is partly to do with the level of interest shown by the public. In recent years the decline in demand has been startling so it was not viable to keep our tanks stocked with expensive fish that may or may not sell.

But enough is enough. We do not want to be left behind after all we are 15 yrs bringing marines into the country and nurturing the hobby i would like to grow our marine base again…a little like fragging ourselves….starts with one polyp then we become two…little acorns.

We had a shipment last week, wasn’t huge but it was mainly to kick start our systems get them moving again.

Several customers eagerly cleared us out 🙂 but we still have some nice fish mega healthy…..

We have struck some new deals with suppliers.

One in particular will deliver to us next day so anything you need drop us an email we will get you a price depending of course on availability…this stock will be coming from quarantined facilities.

We have a separate shipment due in this coming week so do not worry…this shipment will be bigger than the last i will post up the stock as i learn more.

If you guy’s and girls want anything in particular having read this post feel free to message us either on our Facebook page or else the website and we will do our very best to cater for you.

If you need any help or advice please feel free to ask we are always delighted to chat and help, it’s what we are known best for.

 

Thank you for your4 time have a nice day.

Black Friday deals at Aquatic Village. 24/11/2016

Цихлида АКИ темно синий Ласточкакупить киев аква скарб

Hello everyone,

Just a little update as to what is happening at Aquatic Village these days. The world is going crazy for this black Friday nonsense. Truth be known that in its essence is what it really is. Corporate and commercial grab to fleece the public.

We on the other hand are genuinely giving customers the ideal chance to save money or at least to get better value for their hard earned cash….until the end of this month and not just for one day we will be giving you the chance to purchase tropical fish with a genuine saving of 33 %.

That’s right 33%…..buy 2 get a third absolutely free.

This should be great news for people hoping to build up shoals of schooling fish. If this does not suit we will extend the offer to get a third fish of the same value free so you are not limited…….now that’s fair in my opinion.

So forget loyalty card schemes because that is just what they are, we give you the break every time you spend….and when you spend then we spend on more fish always seeking to improve our stocking levels….that is how we will work together…this is what makes the hobby……..

We are also selling half kilo and kilo slabs of frozen food…..a kilo of bloodworm for instance which is ten normal packets is €24.95 that’s less than €3.00 per pack now that is good value……we will also be doing 3 x 120 gram packs for €10  most shops are3 selling for €5.00 per pack.

Because of this stocks will be limited so make sure you get your supply before we run out at the minute the freezer is full…….

I will be posting updates and snippets as often as i can from now on people have been asking me to set the time aside to keep our subscribers up to date so no problem i would be delighted….so lot’s of topics coming your way…..

 

Have a wonderful day

 

Ian

 

New Arrivals 09-11-2016

some new arrivals

Buying Livestock online…

Firstly we would like to start by saying we do not agree with purchasing live fish online but its unavoidable in these times, be it fuel costs, lack of time or simply the convenience of it people seem to turn to online shopping. its a case of if you cant beat them join them.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ORDER….
the first thing you will notice is the shipping cost, €15.00, this is per 20kg box not per fish, a standard poly fish box can hold up to 15 fish of a 2″ size, or 50 of a 1″ tetra size fish, we would advise filling the box to use it to its full value, but we do not advise over stocking your tank so always take into consideration the limits of your aquarium.

IN STOCK/OUT OF STOCK…

there are over 28000 species of fish on the planet but we only have 500 tanks, so from time to time some fish will be out of stock, same can be said for plants, snails and shrimps. stock control on the vast array of species we hold (around 2500) is not an option, we would simply spend too much time counting instead or caring for them. However,as we have new deliveries arriving every week, twice a week sometimes, we can normally fulfill and ship your order within 2 days but we do ask that you allow 7-10 days. if a fish is out of stock but arriving soon we would like time to condition the fish for the journey. we will not ship new arrivals, we will not send fish out unless they are 100% healthy.

HOW THEY ARRIVE…

Fish are packed double bagged using oxygen, and placed in a poly box, we then tape a 20 hour heat pack to the lid and add an extra bottle of hot water. any empty space in the box will be filled with empty bags or newspaper to avoid bags rolling around during shipping. boxes are collected by the courier before 1pm and normally arrive at destination before 1pm the next day, this is at the hand of the courier, once they leave our building we have no control over the delivery, or how they hare handled.
Another reason we do not like to send our fish out.

WHEN THEY ARRIVE…

When your new fish arrive, allow the box to settle for 10 mins on a flat surface, in front of your tank would be ideal, there are many tips and tricks to acclimating new arrivals, we find a piece of air hose to siphon water and slow drip it into the bag or bucket is the best, dim the lights too keep stress to a minimum, after 30-40 mins of dripping they fish can be added to your tank. leave the lights off until they settle in. some fish have different habits, plecs, rummy nose tetra and some others play dead, oscars and some other cichlids sit and sulk for days, but dont worry they will recover, once the other tank mates and water conditions allow it.

OVERVIEW…

We put allot of time and effort into our livestock to maintain health, we have a 20 year reputation to uphold, we are not over trained salesmen, no pitch, no add ons, no scams, no impulse buying, its simple, fish keeping is our passion, we are fish keepers dealing with fish keepers.

new koi room

the latest project at aquatic village, new koi room

the entire room had to taken back to bare concrete and rebuilt as a purpose built koi holding facility.

together the ponds hold 10000L and will hold koi from japans best breeders.

first a 50 year old wooden floor had to be torn out in sections, these were removed via a hole knocked into the wall under the window to make life easy, then a deviding wall had to be removed by sledge hammer, all electrics removed, down to the bare bones, we then built the ponds frame using sleepers, fitted a floor from reclaimed 15 year old decking, and fiberglass to finish the ponds.

the main reason is that its easier and faster to post on our facebook page, and even if you are not a facebooker, there is a scroll from our life feeds of facebook on the website homepage so you can be kept upto date by looking at that.

the second reason for it is that we are 2 staff with 500 tanks, 20000 liters of koi tanks, orders going out coming in phones ringing, water testing/ changeing, feeding fish, cleaning filters, scrubbing algae its non stop, so heres the plan, one day per week will be dedicated to the website so hopefully we can catch up in the near future.

if you have an idea or a suggestion send them in to info@aquatic-village.com we love to hear feedback from other fish keepers.

Regards

Alan

Now delivering livestock direct to your door

12/08/2015

Hello everyone,

Okay due to extreme pressure we have given in.Within the next week or so all our livestock will be available for delivery next day nationwide.Yes you heard correctly. We are setting it up as we speak. Our fish house will be available to you no matter where you are. We have over 450 tanks of stock so the range we carry is indeed mind blowing, so basically i am excited to make this announcement. Our biggest problem is our range is so vast cataloging it will be a nightmare. Most shops have a few tanks we now have 5 fish houses…..with more coming online.Our african section alone is 15metres long with a further 5,ooo litres coming online just for wilds coming from Tanganyika and Malawi.

In the coming weeks we have Peru coming in.

We hopefully have our first Indian Shipment direct.

Then West africa.

Besides our normal stuff.

So you will now be able to chose from the most comprehensive range of stock in Europe. I mean our competitors think they are big….we are over twice our biggest competitors size……and I mean it….it scares me sometimes to see whats in our tanks…..

Well the long and short of it is….by hook or crook we can now send it out to you……From arapiama to guppies……imagine……wild caught aficans…..all genuine and we will certify the origins on wild caught stuff so you know it is the genuine P generation fish….no other company can do this because we are the only ones capable of doing this.

I am not talking about buying from the Uk and pretending we are importers…..we have our own catchers fishing the lakes and rivers……and we can back this up.

So yes I am really looking forward to setting this up………so if you are a fish fan and you like what we do then you will know how I am feeling right now.

Thank you for all your help and support.

Aquatic Village Team.

Rainwater……………………………..

 

Hi there,
The other day a couple of people on facebook asked me about the suitability of rainwater for use in fish keeping.This is a really good subject to have a banter about because for years people have asked me this question and for the first time i will get to write something about it.

I am sure that a lot of people are thinking about collecting rainwater for use in the home aquaria and pond.Especially because of the impending water  charges madness we are about to face.I do not think that it will be a simple as just collecting your own water do you really think that it will be?I read recently that in six states in the USA it is illegal to collect rain water?Did you know this?Well it is true  it belongs to the government and if you are caught hoarding it you are in big trouble.I suppose the reason is lost revenue it is always about revenue and not morality.Now on the basis that every government is about revenue i can see this creep in in the near future trust me what happens in the states usually happens here too.

Okay that is my little rant over.Aquatic Village gives away water.We have an amazing spring so if any one wants soft water PH 6-6.5 come up n get it.

Right rainwater.Firstly water is a very very complicated beast.On the basis that you know the parameters you are looking for for your aquarium you are on the right path.The biggest problem with rain water is stability.Rainwater is the building block to water as we know it.As the water passes through the system ie to become groundwater this is where it gains its characteristics.If we use it straight from the sky we have an immediate stumbling block to overcome.Let us forget contamination for a moment and let us concentrate on the liquid itself.It is pure.Kh and gh non existent for argument sake even though some will argue i will argue back contamination.We have a water source that will have no fixed pH and is likely to crash or rise with the slightest stimulus.

Try vigorously aerating rainwater and see what happens chances are your ph reading will go off the chart in the alkaline direction.This can be catastrophic.Why? Easy half of you still don’t know how or what a test kit is and you will dump rainwater straight into your fish then go online and blame the world instead of yourself.Here is a chance for me to reiterate but a test kit look after your own destiny any shop that test your water for you is not up too much it is called treating you like a mushroom…….

Anyway some rain will have a low ph depending on the amount of co2 in the atmosphere.Heavy populations ie towns and cities will result in low ph which is no good for alkaline fish.Again i will take the moment to stress that did you know that alkalosis or acidosis will produce the same symptoms as most of the fish disease we deal with???Well me awl pal they do.If you see your fish sitting on the aquarium substrate looking miserable check your ph.If you see mucus on your fish and it even turns white and stringy check your ph…….flashing and rubbing check nitrite and ph.

Back to rainwater.Rainwater is fine as long as it is collected in an inert container from an inert source.Check to make sure the tiles etc on the roof are inert and gutters etc are plastic……iron gutters is a no no iron in the water will interfere with the physiological workings of a fish and will prevent it from healing wounds etc.Zinc from galvanized gutters etc a big no no so be practical here.

So you have your rainwater now you will have to shape it to suit.Mineralization is usually the key.Give the water the capacity to buffer itself.We are using small amounts and i know what you are going to say out loud why doesn’t rain mess up lakes and rivers.The key to that answer is in the previous line thank god i added this.Large volumes of water are inherently stable small volumes can be a problem.I have a river running through a piece of land not far from my shop.It is a wonderful clear little stream with plenty of fish and greenery i have thought about doing something with it for years.The ph is 7.And it is crystal clear and tasty…..yum but add an airstone and bang……..ph skyrockets to 9 plus.Why is the river so healthy?Volume for one.Dilution is the other answer.And as the river moves further from the spring it will take up more permanent characteristics form co2 etc and mixing with other water sources.

If you want to use rainwater than condition it accordingly.There are conditioners out there even the RO conditioners will help trust me this is important improve the kh and gh and you will be able to gain control over ph.Rainwater is amazing in its own right because it is pure until it hits the ground from there on lies the problems.Do not use willy nilly check before and after for ph.

I hope this helps the people asking about rainwater draw your own conclusions remember common sense prevails…..if you get stuck the ask the questions…..you can always find updates on our facebook page.
cheers

Customers questions and answers 19/02/2014

Hi there thanks for the appreciation.As for sumps i am not really a major fan of them they come with the systems i use so that’s the real reason i use them.Fish keepers are always looking for the holy grail and sumps always tick that box.As for me i would use a sump if i needed to hide equipment from view like skimmers and heaters etc yea they can make the appearance of an aquarium look better so go for it in that respect.As for filtration,if your water quality via your test kit is perfect then no matter which type of filtration you have done your job.That is how simple life is it scares me that people find it so hard to grasp this concept.Your test results are the answers to your questions.People unfortunately think of water clarity as being the success they have been searching for and i always say then why don’t you keep your fish in vodka that’s nice and clear…..:)It amazes me the hold the trade can have over the general public keep them like mushrooms.Sometimes people get frustrated with me for referring back to water quality all the time but if your results are what you need then that’s that.The most important thing about a sump system is oxygen levels.We come across the same phenomenon using multibay filtration for koi ponds.It is no use having ten chambers packed with media if you cant supply enough oxygen to support the growth of bacteria across the whole of the system.The limiting factor anyway will be available ammonia which is basically a food source.So in essence you will end up with a giant mechanical filter without realizing it.But it serves the same end technically.
In an ideal world the set up you should be focusing on is this as with all filtration.We need to separate the solids fro the water column.By doing this we can keep our culture of bacteria in top form breaking down dissolved waste.Unfortunately this is seldom achieved most filters will turn into a big mushy nightmare if not maintained properly.So when choosing media it is more a personal choice.When it comes to multibay filtration for koi etc nothing beats filter brushes in the first chamber as long as the chamber is sized correctly.You can put all the modern gadgets against this old technology and i haven’t seen it be4ttered yet but the hobby is all about selling gadgets so let them at it. I come from a thinking approach fish have been my life for over 30 years we used to make professional filters ad on occasion we still do when we need too.Brushes will settle solids and solids stick to solids so with in no time you will be shocked at the amount of physical waste a couple of brush chambers in inline will collect.Anyway for a sump we are more restricted.The biggest problem is the return from the tank which will be approx 3500 lph.I do suggest the sock great idea to a degree but the solids will eventually go into solution you will only trap the coarse material but it is something i like the concept…..like all concept.You need to provide a way of slowing the water to a halt so solids will precipitate out of the water column.Bio balls are as good as any but layers of poly wool would be more effective.I love poly wool it is so versatile.It ticks all the boxes.You can use it to prestrain and trap the solids keeping them from moving through the system.Remember to turn off the sytem before removing so you have a static body of water.This prevents contamination of other chambers then you can syphon off the solids that settle while you do your maintenance.Biological media i love siporax it is tremendous every copies it in one way or another but the original is still the best.Sera do bulk siporax we are the agents(little plug there).As a guideline it takes about a cubic foot of media t handle a 1000 litres of water you can use that to gauge the project.I would then use my graded foam coarse medium then fine on the return pump just to keep the last escapees from beating the system.It does not have to be complicated.Fish keepers ultimately battle with particles……its all a visual thing……particles will be beaten by flow rates and the correct building of the weir in the tank.If your weir is just a standard over the top job you will have problems if it has an outer box that collects from the bottom first then you are ok i guess.You can always use an external for removing any stubborn particles in my opinion.

Remember overcrowd your africans this is the way they exist in nature maybe stick a giraffe cat in with them to stir up the sand they are brilliant for hoovering tanks.So i hope this has been helpful to you.
Best of luck
Ian

Questions and answers from my customers…..

i am going setup a new filter for a african cichlid tank.
it has three empty baskets what media should i use or should i use sponge filters on my 350L tank

Answer~:

Hi there,
Ah yes ye old African tank…..I have an 8 foot African tank with nearly 300 fish in it in work it is pretty awesome and i am a big African fan.The reason i keep it so densely stock is to keep aggression to a minimum which it is considering that some of the fish are over 30 cm.On the basis that you have a 350litre tank i would suggest that you would use two externals rather than one.Alternate the cleaning of them leaving at least 4 weeks between servicing so one will be on the ascendency as the other is on the decline biologically because one you service one of the filters it is pretty much foobarred.The biofilm gets sloughed off and the bacteria being really slow to recover will not handle the ammonia produced by your fish that is why testing after clean outs is essential till stability returns.The most important thing is to grade the media used.What media you choose is a personal choice really.But depending on water flow it should go coarse to fine.Catching waste particles in this way is more efficient than bunging up the media.In professional treatment systems this is very evident.We have a specially designed RO system that has pretreatment stages based on this science and we use pressure gauges to inform us when each stage isn becoming a problem.As for media mmmm i like coarse sponge when it forms its biofilm it is a great remover of heavy particles in a small area.Bo balls are a joke for me they are totally inefficient in a confined space where as in a large body of water ie koi filters large chambers they are great for slowing water down and settling solids.Siporax is legendary because of its porosity and filter wool too.But make sure the filter is up to the job flow rate wise.350 litres is a large body of water your biggest problem will be settlement in the tank because of current.I would have an fx6 run this system or two 1200 -1500lph externals as an alternative.My african tank runs at……wait for it………12000lph and it is always spotless so your tank would equate to the fx6 filter 3500 lph.

Anyway cheers dude i have to get some work done or ill be firede.

Questions and answers from a customer……

Also, what are your thoughts on the addition of carbon to your system?

Answer:)

Hi there sorry for late reply poxy internet has been down for a bit there.The raging debate about carbon ….eh….well on a personal level i do not use it the main reason is we manage our systems well and in general it would be impractical for us with over 400 tanks as you can imagine.Now on a hobbyist carbon can be a real help.Some will argue that carbon will remove beneficial items from your aquarium and render your environment to sterile but i would have to disagree here.A lot of the problems people have with the health of their fish is seldom down to issues like this.Health problems are usually imported into your aquarium in my experience.So the issue of customers quarantine is big one.Quarantine begins at home and that’s that there are no two ways about it but that is another matter.The most important thing about carbon is replacing it before it becomes a problem in itself 6-8 weeks is usually the bench mark i would tend to sway towards the 6week period because it tends to leach back into the system despite what manufacturers tell you.Also carbon efficacy depends on the tds of the system by this i basically mean the bio load which really boils down to stocking density and waste control.The great thing about carbon is that it can remove articles out of the water preventing them from collectively adding to waste levels but we tend to use it to reduce visual annoyances it is excellent for water clarity issues….ie tannin in the water especially when you use wood in its various forms.Its great for removing meds to after they burn out from treatment.But the most important thing is to keep the carbon as clean as possible or it will just become a sludged up mechanical filter.This will kind of defeat the purpose so protect it from this making sure it is in the cleanest part of the filter.On the basis that it is replaced properly it will please the eye giving a more pristine edge to aquarium water where aquariums with out it will have that tired look about them.Because of the porosity of carbon even the finest particles can be removed but the biggest issue to its use is contact time with the water to be treated.Seldom is it used properly.The contact time in normal use is way off the mark.An inch or too in depth as part of a mish mash of media does not cut it and to boot having carbon as an off shoot to filtration rather like a uv sterilizer does not cut it.For carbon to work best it should be filtering all of the cleanest water so it should be the last media before the return to the tank.If water can by pass it then we are just wasting our time.Like a uv all the water must pass through it or it is pretty ineffective as a safeguard.
But yea if changed regularly carbon is wicked and effective it is used in waste water treatment of all genres not just by us.
Hope this helps dude…..
cheers

Filtration.18/02/2014.

Hi there,

One of the most important subjects known to man……filtration.When it comes to filtration most people can feel a little overwhelmed by the concept.Not to worry that’s why i am gonna try in a few words to make it real and easy for you.On the basis that some of you have read some of my blogs then you should know that water quality is the key issue for fish keeping.In order to maintain our water quality we do a weekly test with our test kit don’t we folks?…..yes we do Ian….okay that’s cool.Remember your test kit answers your questions before i do.On the basis that our water quality (not Clarity) is up to scratch then the next thing will be the control of solids and all the particulate matter we see in our aquariums.

It is those annoying floating suspended bits that freak us out the most is it not?It does not matter what fish you keep it is always the same.I come across this all the time.Well managing physical waste is called mechanical filtration as opposed to biological filtration.Biological filtration is the action of the bacteria we culture in our filters….it can take up to two months to colonize our filters properly with nitrosomonas  and nitrobacter the two bacteria that form a biofilm in our filters…this is what we call the biological function of our filter.It is an easy concept to understand.These bacteria are slow growing and are oxygen dependent they have an optimum temperature for growth over the temperature we keep our fish at so technically our filters never run to their optimum levels….but that’s by the by.On the basis that they do for argument sake the populations of the colonies can only grow in accordance with the amount of food that is available to them…..this food source is Ammonia.Most of this chemical is produced by the exchange of gases through the respiratory function of the gills.But i am getting off on a tangent here as i do……the biological function of our filter must be safe guarded at all times.

It takes very little to damage this unseen part to our filter.I will explain this in this way.When you are cleaning the sponges in your filter obviously using aquarium water to do so have you ever noticed the slimy feel to the sponge.That is the jelly or bio film i am talking about.Have you ever noticed that no dirt comes out till you squeeze the sponge several times then whoooosh the water is filthy….that is you sloughing off this bio film.Once you do this you compromise everything this is why i suggest using two filters and alternate the cleaning of them.Most people will have problems after a cleaning session.Your fish will still produce the same amount of waste but your filter is biologically dead.If your ammonia levels rise on your test kit then this has happened.I always suggest regularly testing after maintenance to keep an eye out for a spike in the levels.

Once you turn your filter off for more than an hour you can be sure this will kill your biological function too.Low oxygen levels are another sure way to mess up filter performance.Filters need as much oxygen as your fish do.And remember oxygen is temperature dependent.The higher the temp the lower the amount of available oxygen.The third type of filtration we use is chemical.Without going to deep into this because i want to make this simple is the use of chemicals or products that interact with your water in an unbiological way like using resins to absorb Nitrate or else blockers or agents that detoxify.

If we choose and use the correct filter we should have very little issues with our aquarium.Remember a filter is an inert dead thing until you fill it with invisible life.Your filter is not a wonder machine….forget the shiny knobs that is all sales pitch.Bacteria will colonize and settle on any surface as long as there is suitable food source and oxygen levels so you can make a filter using your underpants if you want.What i look for in a filter is quite different.I look for media capacity.I look for through put ie turnover.If you want to nitpick i would test the oxygen levels at the input stage then again at the out put stage to see the amount used in biological function but this is only for my interest really overall oxygen levels of 80 percent should be enough to carry the tank.My suggestion is get a good external for one.I love externals that’s is why there are so many on our site and we sell them so cheap.They take up very little room in the tank which is pleasing to the eye.They have a very high carrying capacity and if you use heterotrophic cultures of bacteria in your tank on a weekly basis you should be able to reduce the physical load in your system by up to 70 percent….imagine that.Yes we can do this.We have done it for Maynooth fisheries.We reduced waste levels by a dramatic amount riding the lake of blanketweed into the bargain.So if we can tackle a lake imagine what we can do to an aquarium.For aquariums you will see similar products title sludge busters etc. I suggest you use them but they have to be used regularly for the results to really shine.

Anyway this discussion is a quick blog to help some of the confusion when it comes to selecting filters.Most filters are good.There i said it.Choose one that suits your needs.That is where we come in.Go to your local fish shop and have a chat….biological filtration is my life i have over 40 sump filters alone to manage in work….if you have any queries i would be delighted to help out.

How to keep agressive fish. 18/12/2013.

Hello,

As you know by now my name is Ian and i own and run Aquatic Village.I am not sure what you actually know about us but let us say we have the maddest shop in the country and i hope this is for all the correct reasons.I have been in business for nearly 16 yrs and to date i run the biggest collection of fish in the country….;..trust me it is mental sometimes. I say this just to let you know that i am not some snot nosed kid that works in a superstore that’s been keeping fish for a week and thinks he knows all.No one knows all and i am alright with that.But i know all i need to know about what makes me different to anyone else in the trade.

I fish for fish i dive with fish i eat fish and i have the largest personal collection of fish in the business and its not for sale.So i hope you can see where i am coming from.Now let us talk about something real.Something everyone experiences at some stage.Can i add here that fish do not read books so do not expect them to act like they have.People forget that our animals become institutionalized.Yes they do.We change the way they act because every day without thinking we are training them without even realizing this.

I often hear things like ‘When i introduced new fish they were attacked instantly’ or my new fish were eaten…..blah blah there is a zillion combinations of this sort of thing.Well think as to why something like this may happen.First of all it is not aggression.When a lion is chewing your leg he is not displaying aggression he is merely eating you. If you pull your leg away then what you will experience next will be more akin to aggression.You have trained your fish to rush to the surface and devour as quickly as possible anything that you drop in to the tank.Does this make sense?Then why did you not think of it before i explained this?

This is one of the problems we face in the trade.Common sense and fish keeping are mostly alien to each other.In future feed your fish well before adding new individuals it will make life a little easier for you trust me.Fish aggression is usually sparked by territorial issues.If there are pairs in the tank then this will escalate.Some fish will show aggression towards fish of their own body shape.Red tailed black sharks versus bala sharks for instance would be a common example of this sort of aggression.Breeding should always be carrie3d out in a separate tank away from the main tank if you want to keep the peace.

Real aggression comes from the incorrect stocking levels of certain fish.Some species are meant to be kept in overcrowded conditions and that is the long and short of it.I know the do gooder inside of you is screaming out nooooo…..but i hate do gooders so i am going to ignore you.What do fish want from life?Well look at that ridiculous dog beside you in that ridiculous Christmas outfit .Yes you are the problem.Fish want food and water quality and lots of sex.That’s it now get over it.

Stop turning your pets into freaky humans they are animals.We can still love them of course that is allowed.Certain fish species exist in massive groups.Damsels for instance.Shops sell you one or two for your tank then as they grow the run amok……er……common sense should kick in here.Their nature is to cling to the smallest territory and defend it with their lives.Solution is to overcrowd them by keeping as many as you can fit into the tank without compromising the water quality.The same with Malawi cichlids and Tanganyikans……i have nearly 300 in my own tank and there is rarely any trouble because as soon as an individual chases an opponent away another takes its place and so on.

I used to have a tank of death up in Aquatic Village.Twelve big Oscars in a four foot tank.There was no aggression.They were overcrowded but it did not seem to matter.You put two Oscars in a tank together if they do not pair up they will most likely bash each other till one submits.Same with most big South Americans or any cichlid for that matter.That is why i can keep 100 juwel cichlids in a 90 litre stock tank.So really what i am trying to get across to you is that if you want to keep certain species look into their habits and traits.If they live in groups then that is an indicator for a start.A classic example is tiger barbs.We keep them in large groups so they will spend most of their time bothering each other.Reduce their numbers and you will see them pick more often on tank mates.

A happy tank is a heavily stocked tank but a heavily stocked tank should be run using double the equipment.If a problem occurs it is better to be using two filters in case one packs up…..two heaters for the same reason use two 150 watts instead of one 300 watt if you need too and make sure your aquarium is well aerated.Oxygen levels are critical.The quickest killer will not be a temperature drop it will be the oxygen levels.Besides your filters will use as much oxygen as your fish do.

So aggression needs to be addressed. If you do not go down the heavy stocking route then that fish will own that tank so good luck on that one.If your fish is causing too much havoc then return it to the shop before it is too late.But remember you are in control from the start.Decide on the set up then stock accordingly.Shoaling fish are kept in shoals.Reef fish are kept in overcrowded conditions and Donegal catch is kept in the freezer.

Cheers

Whitespot control.

whitespotwhite spot 2

Hello again,

Okay the dreaded white spot.I am not going to be technical here.If you want to learn about life cycles then go and research this further.The one rule is this always treat your tank for white spot when you purchase new fish….if you do not then best of luck to you.Always raise your temperature to at least 28 degrees for the week after your new introduction.This will speed up the life cycle of the parasite and we should be able to get rid of it quicker.If you raise the temperature make sure you increase the oxygen levels remember the higher the temperature the lower the oxygen level is.

White spot can have a visible phase that’s the easiest to recognise but you can have also have an invisible infestation at a microscopic level.Unfortunately with white spot it is the secondary infection that actually kill the fish so a good idea that I employ would be to use a product like Melafix in conjunction with the white spot treatment to combat the knock on problem.This is what i do so if you do it too then that is your choice remember that!

Learn to recognise this quickly hence the photo attached to this blog.White spot is a myriad of tiny white spots and under the microscope it appears as cylindrical blob with millions of little smaller offspring swimming around inside it.

The big big problem is that there are mutations due to the level of farming out there so some out breaks can be much harder to kill.I reccommend either Protazol by the company Sera this is a serious treatment i love it or else Ws3 by King British also a cracking white spot treatment.

Anyway this info should help for now you can contact me if you think i should go into more depth remember test your water every day during treatments variables can change oh so quickly!

Disease control in a nut shell…..

People have been asking me about the do’s and the dont’s of fish keeping and pointers here and there.Well for one there are no miracles and no miracle treatments for one.There is only science and reality.Yes this is a science.Fish keeping is a living visceral thing.As I mentioned before we communicate with our fish via test kits there is no other fish keeping so remember to buy your own kit do not let shops test your water for you that is doing you no favour……you will remain ignorant of what is going on.

Okay my train of thought keeps going all over the place I am trying to do this with customers chatting to me…..arrrrgh….be polite Ian…..

The first real physical problem you will face as a fish keeper is recognizing the health status of your fish.

1.Fish should not rub themselves off objects in the aquarium.If you observe this behaviour then most likely you have a parasite problem.Make sure you have no nitrite levels as nitrite acts as an irritant as well as a physical poison it will also prevent your fish from assimilating oxygen this is a condition called black blood……it aint good!We can talk more about this some other time…..if you want.Anyway if your fish are flicking you have a problem.The main problem is the parasites we deal with are essentially invisible to the naked eye.If you can see something then it usually aint a major problem but as always there are exceptions.The main problems with parasites is the invisible damage they do.They will leave microscopic wounds that will become infected.This is called secondary infection.You can see this and nine times out of ten the infection will get colonized by a fungus this will be easier to see.And this is the mistake.Treating for fungus is not going to solve the original problem.

2.Fish should always have their fins spread out proud from the body unless they are fleeing from predators or moving particularly fast.

3.When you are in a shop and you put your hand to the surface of a tank fish should respond eagerly looking for food.If this does not happen then beware…..healthy fish are always hungry.

4.Buy your fish from a reputable supplier……not someone who sells fish because its a money spinner.Go to Aquatic Stores not superstores or garden centers manned by kids or idiots…..you will be fooled because you know no better.Follow my advice this is not rocket science.If you randomly buy fish then you will probably give up pretty soon.

5.We all have dead fish on occasion it is impossible to keep 450 tanks free from the odd floater….if you are in a shop with only a few tanks and plenty of floaters then leggit….that is the standard they have set for themselves there should be no excuse for selling dodgy animals period.

6.Learn to recognise whitespot it is the number one killer.All fish carry this parasite it appears like tiny salt grains all over the fish.A lot of stores have their tanks centralized so if one tank has it then they probably all have it.We have our systems running independently every metre that means each metre is self contained so we can limit health problems.That is the way it should be.

7.If you really want to learn about the hobby do not be afraid to ask questions.We love questions and we never get tired of answering them.Our motto is there is no such thing as a stupid question just a stupid answer.

8.Make sure your fish are packed separately.Do this and they will travel better.Do not let shops give you a dolly mixture in the one bag this is unforgivable.God knows what will happen in that bag before you arrive home.

9.If you see a problem well then mention it to a staff member.If you are not happy then let your feelings be known.Chances are your opinion will be correct have the dealers in the country have not got the slightest clue what they are actually doing so it is important to speak up.Common sense makes the best fish keeper.

10.If there is a problem in a dealers tank or system then you run the risk of bringing it home so under no circumstances buy fish from that tank or system and that’s the law!Do not be tempted to rescue a fish and treat it at home because if it is going to survive it should not be sick in the first place.

Why I reccomend using two seperate filters in an aquarium 25/10/2013

When people talk to me about water quality and how to maintain the correct parameters within your aquarium we normally come up against the same problems again and again.For one most people are in the dark when it comes to the actual workings of their biological filters.By this i mean what actually goes on inside them.People get more caught up in brand names and the like without realizing that’s not what filtration is about.

Firstly a filter is not a magical machine.We concentrate two forms of bacteria inside the unit and nourish it by passing waste through the colonies.Once there is a continuous flow of nitrogenous waste bacteria will colonize that area.The amount of waste will determine the size of the colony.Therefore most filters will work biologically the choice of filter is a personal one.

Nitrobacter and nitrosomonas are the two principal bacteria used in our hobby there are others but lets keep this simple.These bacteria will grow to form a biofilm which is a jelly like substance that will cover all the available surface area in your aquarium and filter.It takes 6-8 weeks to establish them.When you service your filter you must use water taken from the aquarium and not tap water.Municipal tap water is the enemy.Usually it is full of chlorine and chlorine kills bacteria.So when you are servicing the filter clean it using aquarium water and the water you replace back into the tank make sure it has been sufficiently conditioned using a water conditioner and make sure it is also the correct temperature.

No matter how careful you are in this process you will destroy the biological function of your filter.This is a major problem!Do you know why?Thank god i do:)It is very important to understand that fish poo is not the only waste produced by our fish.75% of a fishes waste is exchanged via the gills.

 

Our new website…..25/10/2013

Hi guys just to let you know our new website is under construction as i am sure you all can see.The online shop itself will be open for business soon we are just doing the final touches.For the moment though you can purchase our on line vouchers straight away for buying live fish.Yes that is half price folks.Not only are our fish the healthiest in the country now we can double the value of your money too.This offer wont last for ever so take advantage of it now.If you have any questions email us or visit our Facebook page and you can message us from there.

Did you know? 22/10/2013

Hello there,

Did you know that Aquatic Village recycles all it’s own cardboard and newspaper?In fact anything we can break down to form compost we will use.You may ask yourself how we do it well the answer is simple we have our very own worm factory!

Yes you read this correctly.We use worms to recycle our  waste.In our worm factory we have over 1 million worms which consume our waste and produces worm castings which in turn we will use for composting.This type of composting is called vermicomposting and in fact this type of composting produces the richest compost money can buy.

One of the main reasons I do this is out of sheer curiosity.To see the worm colonies grow in number is really something else.Also i get great satisfaction knowing that I am doing my bit for the environment.We will also sell the worms to our public not only as fish food but as a starting culture for their own vermicomposting.

Imagine your own little worm factory at home.You could efficiently recycle all your house hold waste that is bio degradable.Imagine the benefits.You would have your own supply of worms to enrich your soil with if needs be or else if your happy with just composting think of all the benefits of having an unending supply of compost at your fingertips.Think of the educational opportunity for your kids?This could be the introduction to nature that turns them into a greener person.

Did you know that most modern gardens have a poor supply of earthworms due to the nature of the way they have been constructed.Modern day construction over rubble and marl with a thin layer of topsoil leaves little for the worms to colonize.And besides modern day pesticides and additives have decimated worm populations anyway.Do you know just how important earthworms actually are to the environment?They are vital for the health of our habitats.They continuously move and aerate the soil.What else does this?They enrich the soil with their castings.They will improve drainage and the list goes on trust me.

That is one of the main reasons i have started my own worm factory.Not only can i re use our shop waste in another more beneficial form i can do a little to help the environment which i am not ashamed to say makes me proud.We cannot all be minuses and that makes me a plus for once in my life.

Did you know that Aquatic Village has it’s own livestock breeding program?Yes we breed a lot of fish species and have done for over ten years.We have taken it a little further though with over one third of our tanks dedicated to the practice of raising fry.We are probably one of the first to do this.Originally Aquatic Village was set up to breed and raise Koi (Japanese carp)we were the first successful facility to achieve this in Ireland.That’s 15years ago.Now half the country claims to be the first I say with a big smile on my face.Now days we bred a massive list of animals so every day is different with worms being the latest addition to the family.

People often ask me what make us different than everyone else?I always smile.We are too different to make comparisons with other aquatic stores because we are mental and liable to try anything for the sheer thrill of it.

If anything i have discussed here interest you then get in touch let’s have a chat you will never know what might happen!

Why do my fish keep dying? 21/10/2013

Ah yes…..i thought i would start this topic and see where it takes me.I have kept and been into fish since i was eleven years old and now i am forty five…..wow….sounds weird when i say it like that.I run the largest independent fish house in Ireland and to date we have received several awards for what we do.We are a shed in the middle of nowhere hidden from view with no passing trade and yet despite it all we are still here.I wonder about that too by the way.

Why am i different to all my competitors?Well for one i am a fish keeper.I have the largest collection of freshwater fish in the country in fact if i sold some of them i could probably eat more than just beans and toast. I am fanatical about what i let leave the building.Health wise that is.

There is though after all a very serious issue here.I hear this every day of my life ‘Why do my fish keep dying?’On the basis that most people can feed and look after themselves and are at least mildly intelligent i truly believe not every customer is completely incompetent and can not keep fish alive.And if the customer tests his water parameters on a regular basis then i think hand on my heart that there are deeper routed problems here to address.I do not believe for one moment that people intentionally set out to kill there livestock even though accidents do happen.They happen to me on a regular basis.

I believe the real issues as to why my fish keep dying is the trade.From my experience as a supplier to the trade i feel i am more than qualified to make that statement.One of the reason i pulled back from supplying the trade was the sheer incompetence of the traders i was dealing with.Now i mean incompetent.I was supplying fish to people that had less knowledge than even novice fish keepers have and they were supplying the public?Oh my god….they were frustrating times let me tell you.Most of the shops but not all of them sell fish to make money…..they are not hobbyists.Most shops but not all of them will sell you anything to turn a penny because if it dies in their tank they have lost the money.That does not happen here.With me.We have so many stock tanks that we can sell other items if an animal is not healthy.But because Ireland is Ireland and people do not care about one another anymore those shops will continue to sell fish that are unfit for sale.And do you know why?Because the public are to stupid to realize this.

I am not saying everything i sell stays perfect that would be arrogant.What i am saying is the best of what we have goes out the door.If i have problems then we exclude the problems from going on sale.Other shops cannot afford to do this.Also every meter of our stock tanks are self contained ie each bank of tanks.Most shops centralize their systems for convenience sake we do not.So we do not have problems going through all our tanks.Now let me get back to an earlier point i made.Customers losing fish.You would lose a lot less fish if you were not so lazy.Get off your you no what and support the shops that have the reputation for healthy stock.The lazy people buy the closet possible usually at a superstore or a garden center.Superstores and garden centers are a no no….trust me.To them it is a numbers game….there will be a new face serving you every other week.That is a bad reflection on that business.There should be stringent regulation that would end that for a start.

Anyway sorry i have so much to say i am wandering here.It is about why fish keep dying….OK on the basis that you acclimatize your fish correctly by adding aquarium water to the bag slowly over 20 to 30 min till bag fills up and your water parameters are where they should be then fish after a period of six weeks should fully acclimatize.What i mean by acclimatize is that the fish will have adjusted to the water conditions in your tank.This six week window is the real issue here.Most people will have their issues in that period.To overcome this deadly time you must quarantine your fish.Yes you must not me.If i quarantine a fish then give it to you the same thing will happen.Shops that boast about quarantine….don’t really know what they are talking about.It’s just words..to win you over.This is a science after all remember that.

Once you move a fish technically it will need to be re quarantined.One of the biggest problems you will face as a fish keeper is parasites.Most parasites are invisible to the naked eye and any you can see tend not to be a major issue.The parasites we deal with are microscopic and they tend to be the culprits 8 of of ten times.So how can garden centers and superstores and fish shops sell fish if they do not understand the issues they are passing out?I do thankfully.But do you know the worst thing?You do not know either so you become trapped.You buy a fish chance are it will have a heavy parasite load and then it kicks off when you get the time bomb home.This kills me.Everyday i get people coming to me with the same stories my fish keep dying and then they tell me where they bought them.Basically i now say ‘what do you expect?’Sure people are too lazy to keep fish in Ireland.They will go back to the same shop again and again with cap in hand to get advice from some 16 year old that is keeping fish for a week themselves.This is the trap!This is why your fish keep dying!

A perfect example.A friend of ours who buys all his fish off me went to a superstore recently and bought some cardinal tetras.Two days later he lost those cardinals plus forty of his own which were mine plus forty rummy nosed tetra which were mine plus his corydoras. nI told him to back to that store and raise hell….he is going back today.

So basically another shop has wrecked the hobby for one of my customers.I took samples of his dead fish and showed him the problems under the microscope he was appalled.Now most people will take this on the chin.At least for a while.They wont question the stock they are getting even if there are dead fish in the tanks.I keep saying to people use your common sense for god sake.People can be so stupid they make me want to scream.Some of our best customers travel the length of Ireland to visit me and it’s is great to meet enthusiastic people it recharges the battery.250 thousand people within 6 miles of me and what do i have to listen too?’Your too far out!’ i can not help people like that.If i have to explain to them that if they complain to me about why their fish die all the time then tell me i am too far out i will eventually strangle one of them.

 

But on a more serious note.The health of fish in Irish stores today is shocking.I can look after 425 tanks on my own why can’t they look after what little they have? So stop buying fish in shops that have a poor track record.It is as simple as that.Do not buy from people that do not know what they are doing end of!If your water quality is good then there is a problem.That is a fact.Where did you buy that problem?Go back and get it sorted.

Fish do die.Some will not make it home.This happens.Why do all the old fish die off in my tank and not the new ones or the other classic the new ones died and all my own are still okay…..these are fairly easy questions to answer.When you add new fish to your tank they will enter the six week viscous circle of adjustment.In that time period a lot can happen.I will run through a few scenarios.New fish dying.New arrivals are stressed malnourished most probably and possible unsuitable for your aquarium water parameters.New fish will probably have a heavy parasite load.New fish will be bullied most likely because you have trained your fish to eat what comes into your aquarium through feeding regimes so feed your fish well before adding new fish.Older tank mates will have adjusted to all the madness of your tank they should be fitter stronger and more able to deal with newbies.If new fish survive and older stock dies there is a probability that you have introduced a new problem which will be invisible to the naked eye.I will talk later about how to deal with these health issues.Fish keeping is a science so get to grips with it.If you do not have a full test kit then keep donkeys are something else instead.If a shop tells you that they will test your water for you then run….they are the culprits……..they keep you ignorant…..then they make you feel guilty and then they will tell you lies and slowly but surely the great wheel turns and another person leaves the hobby!!

Finally get this blog thing working…..14/10/2013

Hello there,

As you all probably know my name is Ian.Unfortunately a lot of people won’t know who I am so more is the pity.Sometimes i say and do things that people don’t agree with but trust me to get the most out of what it is I do lets just get over the impressions thing.For one i am probably one of the longest standing aquatic specialists in the country that keeps fish himself.I have the largest freshwater collection you will ever probably see so that makes me a fish nut….so you are in good hands.

As for Aquatic Village…what is there to say?We are the weirdest and probably most wonderful place on the planet today.Why?My god where do I start?We evolved in a shed for a start.We are hidden away in the middle of nowhere even Google maps can’t get us right.But the most important thing to remember is we have been helping people from the start.Okay i have bad days.Every body does from time to time.I say mad things and do mad things but lets get over my bedside manner.Aquatic Village is special.We will help our loyal followers till the bitter end.There are some out there that can vouch for this and i hope there will be many more in the future.
It is all about fish.Just remember that folks.We have over 400 tanks of fish here and challenge any shop to reach our standards of fish health…and for the most i look after these tanks on my own.So i can eat fish,sleep fish and play with the fish it isn’t a fake thing.

Why am i talking myself up here hmmmm ?Well i am trying to explain to you why we are a positive as opposed to a negative.There are way too many stores out there peddling something they know nothing about.Fish should be sold by passionate knowledgeable people not accounts and shiny superstores.Garden centres and hardware shops …What the hell?
Come up and let me show you stuff.Let’s just talk.Let’s talk about Monster fish keeping and Jungle Hooks and fish warrior…we sell all those fish by the way….but my commitment to the public is I WILL TAKE BACK ALL LIVESTOCK WHICH I HAVE SOLD AND I WILL FIND SUITABLE HOMES FOR THOSE ANIMALS….so let’s drop the arguments over what fish should be kept versus what shouldn’t it is a lame and totally pointless conversation.Either we keep fish in captivity or we don’t that is the argument.No body ever cries about the million neon tetras that probably get killed in aquariums every year do they?All we can do is our best full stop and that is where i come in.
My job is to help people keep fish.So i will help you.That’s the simplest answer i can give on the subject.I am a tweeker and problem fixer and can i tell you something for real……’I really love my job’

That is why i come to work and stay late for 364 days of the year…..i love what i do.Do you really need a reason to come here?You shouldn’t really need one.I supposed if your too lazy to travel that is cool but it will be your loss and mine too i suppose….so get your finger out!!!

Cheers
Ian

Our resident Giant Gourami ‘Bubbles’ he is a legend!

Giant Gourami

Welcome to Aquatic Village.

First things first.All fish require the same amount of care and attention.There is no secret to fish keeping in essence we are water keepers.Fish look after themselves.Our job is to provide the correct water quality for them and when i say water quality i do not mean water clarity.There is a fundamental difference between the two.If you think clear water is the answer to all your problems then you are setting off down the wrong road.

As fish keepers our goal is to make sure that our animals are living in the correct environment and to achieve this we need to test the parameters of our water.It is your job as a fish keeper to purchase a complete water test kit.Do not under any circumstances rely on your local fish shop to do this for you.It is your hobby your fish will die on your time not theirs Murphy s law applies to fish as well by the way.

When I talk about water testing the first thing people do is cringe…..why?This is not rocket science it is in fact probably one of the most interesting aspects of our hobby.Where does our waste come from and where does it go.Did you no for instance that a substantial part of a fishes waste comes from its gills.Here ammonia is exchanged on a constant basis every time a fish opens and closes its gills.Everyone thinks a fish just poos and that it but no it gets a little more convoluted than that.Waste comes from the decomposition of organic matter.In other words anything organic introduced to our system will break down and release ammonia.This goes for food,plant material,wood,mucous the list is inexhaustible.

The peculiar thing is this waste does not colour our water.So clear water is no indicator.Fish behavior is no real indicator because only more experienced fish keepers will recognize this and by then it may be too late.I tell customers if you would like to work on the water clarity theory then throw your fish in to warm vodka and see how long they last.

Many of our fish species do not come from clear water environments.They almost always come from biologically clean ones.Some waters have high turbidity meaning the water may be stained with tannins or cloudy from sediment but the amount of nitrogenous waste in the water column is invariably nil.

So we use a test kit to test for four main parameters.Ammonia,nitrite,nitrate and PH.Simple.We keep our Ammonia levels at nil.We keep our nitrite levels at nil.We try to keep by doing suitable water changes our nitrate levels below 20ppm.The bottles are clearly marked we work via a colour chart and we use a 5ml sample.This is how simple things are.All fish require an ammonia and nitrite environment.The only real variance will be the PH of our water.Some fish like a neutral Ph of 7 whereas others will like a more alkaline ph like for example Malawi Cichlid’s.Some fish species will prefer a lower Ph like for instance Discus.

When it comes to wild fish actual P generation specimens then we need to pay more particular attention to the correct Ph levels.Captive bred species tend to be a little more forgiving to fluctuations from the norm.

Remember we are dealing with a closed system.We are god.We must provide food and hygiene for our animals.So the first thing you buy is a test kit.You test your water it is up to you and only you so do not be lazy.

We use filtration to control the nitrogenous waste that accumulates in our tank.What i mean by this is we grow two forms of bacteria on our filter media.Nitrosomonas and nitrobacter.These are a particularly slow growing bacteria.We use cultures to seed our system.It can take up to two months to achieve this.Our filtration is our life support.Depending on temperature and oxygen levels our filter will work to a varying degree.The bacteria we use operate at an optimum temperature of 33 degrees Celsius so most fish keepers will experience different levels of efficiency.Remember our bacteria are oxygen loving so oxygen levels are a critical factor.So make sure you use an appropriate  air pump for the task.Another benefit of using an air pump is that by chance you have a filter malfunction then at least oxygen levels can be maintained.One of the biggest and quickest killers of fish populations is oxygen depletion.Especially for large fish species with a higher oxygen demand.

Whenever possible i suggest the use of two separate filter units.most new set ups will come with one filter included.Just remember that your bacteria colonize your filter media after quite a long time,they form a bio film and grow according to the amount of food present for them (nitrogenous waste)when we clean that filter we will upset the biological function of the filter IE.we will reduce its ability to process waste often to the detriment of our fish.I always suggest using a second filter in conjunction with the first.By alternating the cleaning of the unit say 2-4 weeks apart we can maintain a healthy biological function.The added bonus here is that by running two filters simultaneously you divide the physical load into two units making them more efficient needing less maintenance.

Remember never clean your filters biological media IE sponges etc near untreated tap water.We use water taken from the aquarium.The reason for this is municipal water will invariably contain chlorine and chlorine kills bacteria so in effect you will be sterilizing your filters and we do not want to do that.So tap water must be conditioned using a suitable water conditioner!Remember always test your water in the days following filter maintenance your water may look clean and healthy but by now we should know better!If you have done the job correctly then your ammonia levels and nitrite should be nil the way it should be.

As a note it is important to know ammonia is more toxic at a higher Ph than it is at a lower Ph.So marine keepers and rift valley cichlid keepers bear this in mind.

So forget clear water!Clear water means nothing.Our filters are like factories they take a harmful waste and produce a lesser waste from it called nitrate.This happens 24/7 so do not become complacent.Nitrate has to be removed one way or another.Water changes is the most common way but using plants to consume nitrate is the most aesthetically pleasing.

So a beginner should have at hand a test kit that will test for at least the following ammonia,nitrite,nitrate and ph.Two biological filter units. Water conditioner and a bacteria culture.An air pump.And i would suggest a reliable book.

As for fish………this is where it gets tricky.

More to follow!

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
