People usually have often wondered why a goldfish can live in an aquarium or a jar of pickles. What is the difference between an aquarium without all that equipment and these other, more expensive aquariums with all the equipment in the world? The answer is simple. Goldfish are cold-blooded animals. That means that the temperature of their body depends on the temperature of the environment. In natural habitats, temperature changes depending on the season or time of a day. Changes in temperature are sudden, and fish can mostly adapt without trouble. When it comes to goldfish, you will not need a heater, and you will have no problems because goldfish can adapt to room temperature, and goldfish ca live in an aquarium without a heater.
On the other hand, tropical aquarium fish cannot survive without heaters and other accessories in the aquarium. Tropical fish, require heat, as much as possible, to simulate their natural environment.
How do we choose the strength of battery aquarium heaters for our aquarium? The rule goes like this: Minimum heater power 1W per liter of water. Therefore, power heater for an aquarium of 120 liters shall not be less than 120 W, and it is desirable to be much stronger. When you clean, the aquarium, be careful not to break the heater.
Once you have chosen what type of heater you need for your aquarium, it is very important that you always make sure that the glass portion of the heater is below water level. Otherwise, it could overheat, and crack. When cleaning the tank, before you take the heater out of the tank, turn it off and let it cool. Turn off the heater, after putting it in the water for about 15 minutes. Why is this so? You need to adjust the water temperature. After that, you need to include a power supply. That is something you will have to do if you do not have a battery aquarium heater, which, of course, does not require the electricity.
Some types of aquarium fish sometimes prefer to rest in the heater. It is dangerous because fish get sunburn, but can also die. To prevent this, protect your heaters with a net or some plastic pipe.
