    The summer weather is hot, and the increase in room temperature will also cause the water temperature to rise. If the ornamental fish in the home are not properly fed, they may become sick or even die. Therefore, to raise fish in summer, if you want the fish to grow healthily, you must pay more attention to water temperature, feeding, and water changes.

    If the temperature difference in the living environment exceeds 8°C, some ornamental fish will get “white spot disease” and white spots appear on the fish, which is harmful to health. Try to ensure that the water temperature in the fish tank does not vary greatly at different times, avoid exposure to the sun at noon, and place the fish tank in a cool indoor place. If white spots are found on the fish, bactericidal salt can be used to treat diseases.

    Fish farming must put water quality first. In summer, the temperature is high, bacteria multiply quickly, food is easy to deteriorate, and it is easy to cause water quality to deteriorate. Change the water frequently and feed less. It is recommended to change the water every two or three days. Take one-fifth of the water in the fish tank, and then add the same amount of water.

    Feeding fish in summer, in line with the principle of “feeding less and more meals”, feed them once in the morning and evening, and the amount per meal is reduced to about half of the original meal. Hungry for one day a week without feeding.

    In the weather with high temperature and low air pressure, some aquarium fish with relatively large oxygen consumption will be “stuffed” like people, and they will have “lack of appetite”. You can use an oxygen pump or a professional cooling fan to add oxygen and cool down the water in the fish tank. You can also fill the mineral water bottle with cold water, put it in the refrigerator and freeze it into ice, then wipe the water bottle clean, and put the “ice bottle” in the fish tank to cool the water.

    There are also special attentions in cooling the fish tank. First of all, the location of the tank should not face the sun. Don’t think that you can steal some natural light source to enhance the lack of light. It is best to place it in a space without direct sunlight. Secondly, the room should be well ventilated as much as possible to keep the room temperature from being too high. Good ventilation can also ensure that the humidity is not too high and erodes the furniture.

    There should not be too many submersible motors in the fish tank. Properly calculate the amount of filtered water required and use a suitable motor, or stop some auxiliary pumping motors when the temperature is too high.

    The intensity of the light is also the main cause of the temperature rise, but the light is also very important, and it is impossible to say that you can remove a few at will, so if your original lamp is placed very close to the water surface, you can try to cushion a little when the temperature rises quite high. Raise the styrofoam a little bit and sacrifice a little light to lower the temperature. If you are using underwater lamps, please absolutely take them off the water.

    The way the fan is placed is also very important. If you just use a large fan to blow towards the cylinder, or use a computer fan to blow towards the water, the effect is limited. The key is that the fan has enough air volume and direction. In the convection state, you can buy three large fans and put them together so that they can be mounted on the tank and the air volume is large enough.

    Finally, the cooling measures should not affect the fish. The temperature should drop slowly, and should not rise or fall suddenly. If possible, please use a thermometer. In the sweltering summer, fish, like people, will also reduce activities such as foraging. Please do not deliberately tease it, as this is conducive to the growth of fish.
