Keeping Live Aquarium PlantsKeeping Live Plants in the Aquarium

Increased environmental awareness, and the push to find a new challenge or dimension to freshwater aquarists has rejuvenated the interest in keeping live plants in the aquarium. Commonly referred to as “Dutch Aquarium", this European concept is beginning to catch on in the U.S. For years, Europeans have kept indoor “water gardens” (aquariums) loaded with live plants, and displaying only a few fish to accent their garden. This approach is opposite from the traditional fish keeper who considered fish the primary attraction in the aquarium.

Taking Care of Your Fish During a Power Outage

Without power there is not much that can be done with filtration on the aquatic system.

The fish and animals if not overloaded in the aquarium should be okay, for a few days filtration wise. Do not feed the fish or do any cleaning of the aquarium as this can add to the overload of the filtration system.

The most important immediate concern for the fish in the aquarium is gas exchange, oxygen in and carbon dioxide out. This occurs in the aquarium at the water surface. Moving the water at the surface increases the surface area and thus increases gas exchange.

Battery Operated PumpsThis can be created manually by using a bucket. Put holes in the bottom of the bucket and position the bucket above the aquarium. Fill the bucket with water from the aquarium and allow it to drip/splash back into the aquarium creating increased surface movement and increased gas exchange, oxygen in and carbon dioxide out. How often should the bucket operation be performed? The fish will tell you. When they need oxygen, they will go to the surface and hang there “this is where the greatest concentration of oxygen is located”. At this point, perform the bucket operation.

Other options are the purchase a battery powered air pump. This will bubble and allow the surface of the water to agitate. Another option would be to run a battery operated fan and have it blow across the surface, again to cause agitation. The surface agitation allows carbon dioxide to be released and oxygen to be absorbed.
