Caring for your Habitat
Placement of your Habitat – Your Habitat will thrive and be happy in a well lit room away from direct sunlight.
Feeding your Livestock – Choose the appropriate food for your Livestock. Feed once daily only giving your animals as much as they can eat within a 5 minute period and then removing the balance to avoid excess waste in your Water.
Keeping your plants healthy – Remove any sick plants carefully immediately. Also, remove wilting parts of the plant, such as old leaves to avoid them fouling the water.
Water Changes – All fish, shrimp and snails require regular water changes. These water changes should be done every 2 weeks.
You will need to remove 1/4 to 1/3 of your existing water and replace it with tap water mixed with Declorinator either Prime or API Tap Water Conditioner.
Every 2nd water change (every 4 weeks) you should also clean your gravel. The easiest way to do this is with a Water Siphon that can be purchased at Mappins or a Pet Store.
