1. When you are removing a large ornamental rock from your aquarium, make sure to check all the nooks and crannies. Some fish love to hide in there and it is good to double check to make sure you donít leave one of your fish out of water.
2. 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.
3. Provide plenty of places for your aquarium animals to hide. Studies have actually shown that the more places a fish has to hide, the less likely they are to do so! Hiding spots also provide safe spots of refuge for smaller fish in the aquarium
