Ornamental Fish 2 (Biofilter)

Some people really don't like to keep ornamental fish in their house. Maybe because of some reasons such as; not have enough time to do water exchange, cleaning the tank, etc. Most people don't know how to use the filter efficiently. If biofilter is not working properly, it would reflect on the fish well being because the biofilter is important to maintain good water quality. Sometimes people clean their filter every week, which is actually a bad practice because that will get rid of useful bacteria leading to a deterioration of water quality. The most important thing to do before fish is stocked in the aquarium is to make sure biofilter is working.
Here, I will share with you all how to make your biofilter working. Before we stock the fish in the aquarium, firstly, we need to run the system for almost 20-30 days to get the filter working . Do not change the water or clean the filter. A few days after we run the system, we will see the water will become dirty and shows that the biofilter is still operating. Therefore not enough useful bacteria are present in the filter. After 20-30 days, we will see the water in the aquarium becomes more clear than before, but at the same time, the filter looks dirty. That mean the biofilter has started to work to its maximum level. But, remember, do not ever clean your filter because if we clean it, you will get rid of all useful bacteria. After the water become clear, we can stock our fish inside the aquarium without worrying about any water exchange every week.
Actually, if we add ammonium chloride in the begining, it can make the biofilter work faster. But we should know the right dosage of ammonium chloride that should be added in the aquarium. Miscalculation will cause fish die after some time.
