  1. Default Cleaning the oscar tank


    0 Not allowed!
    when i do a water change or a full tank clean on my oscar tank it use to be easy because i could remove the small oscars and place them in a bucket with a water heater, then, i would place another heater in their tank whilst it heated the water then i would put the oscar back in

    the oscars are to large now to do that, i was curious how do i put new water in the tank without it being to cold for the oscars while it takes its time to heat up

    Why do you need to remove them. You can just work with the Oscr in the tank. The might become a little stressed but not so stressed tht it is problem for their health.

    Do you eman that exchange all water in the tank?

    when i change the water, and put the new water in its below the Oscars normal water tempreture is it safe for them to be in the below water temprture while it warms up

    Do not do a 100% water change at one time. i have 100 gallon of aged water, that i used to do my water changes with. my aged water tank have a heater and filter in it , so that way if i need to do a water change fast, i got everything ready.

    is it safe for them to be in the below water temprture while it warms up
    It depends on how much water you change and how much colder the new water is. More or colder water will affect the temp in the entire aquarium more and make it unhealthy for the Oscar to stay there.

    Why don't you just use water of the same temperature?

    Well the water i use to put back in the tank just comes from the tap and it comes in at a below tempreture, would it be safe to turn on the hot water a little bit to raise it to the Oscars prefered temprture then put it in?

    The last question is posted in the chatterbox by me earlier this night, before this post ;-)

    I have never had any problem mixing water to get the right temperature directly from the tap. Warm water may however contain a little more metals so you might want to use a water preparation chemical in the new water before putting it in the tank if you arenít already using one.
