How long should I wait to put my fish back in my tropical tank after changi
Hello. So I bought 4 fish recently (2 angels and 2 Rainbow Sharks) both tropical fish. I put a small heater in the tank, and at first they seemed fine. Today, my room got into the low 80s, and the fish kept swimming up to the top and spending their time there. Three died shortly thereafter. I quickly unplugged the heater, and the last one seems to be back to normal (it is one of the sharks). Should I plug the heater in again? Is there something I can do to prevent this?
Hey, I know that this will Sound crazy, but I have two tropical fish (used to have four) in with some non-tropical fish, they are in a ten gallon tank, they already have a filter, this is my fist REAL fish tank. I also have two beta’s in their own tanks, but my problem is that I don’t know if I should get the heater or not because 90% of my fish are not tropical, the guys at PetSmart must think I’m crazy by now… But should I get the heater?
