Self-proclaimed aquarist or a fish hobbyist
At some point along the road, you decided to have your very own aquarium. So, you set up the tank and got a great collection of fish. However, your dreams of having a fish tank have been going far from great. If you’ve experienced multiple deaths of fish in your tank, it’s time to assess the water quality fish ammonia poisoning.
Good water quality is the single most crucial factor to achieve a healthy aquarium. Poor water quality alone is responsible for more aquarium fish deaths than anything else. So, if you’re ever having problems with your fish, water is the place to start.
Aquarium Water Parameters
There are many elements to consider, quite literally, in ensuring the appropriate water parameters for your fish.
From the p-H levels to g-H (general hardness) and KH (carbonate hardness) levels. Even the amount of Ammonia, Phosphate and Nitrate present. All of these determine the suitability of the environment for your fish.
All of this, combined with fish waste and excess food can form an unpleasant home for fish to live. Thus, contributing to the formation of toxins and fish ammonia poisoning. However, while they are not necessarily visible to the naked eye, they do increase the likelihood of fish poisoning.
