1. When adding plants to the aquarium, be sure to check the lighting needs. Try to find plants that will fit the pre-existing lighting conditions of your aquarium. You should avoid plants that require much more light than the fish in your aquarium.
2. Do not overfeed the fish in your aquarium. Keep your feeding times at scheduled intervals to avoid overfeeding. If you are just starting your feeding routine, start out small and increase the amounts you put in on how much your fish eat.
3. It is not recommended to keep your aquarium where it receives direct sunlight. Exposure to direct sunlight can upset the balance of the aquarium and can raise aquarium temperature levels. It is best to keep your aquarium in a place where you can control the lighting.
