有了FishBit,养鱼再也不是件难事了!

好好的一条鱼,为什么就养不活呢?那么,你该来看看这个叫做FishBit的设备了,通过在智能手机上安装相应的App,然后连上设备后就可以监测你家的水族箱了,那群游过来游过去的家伙,看谁还敢随随便便就给我死!

FishBit是什么?

首先请自行想象当你家水族箱里的水pH变得不正常,加热器崩了温度变得诡异起来,或者该给小鱼换换洗澡水了,无论何时,无论何地,你都可以立刻收到通知“主银,救命吖”。不仅如此,你更可以通过手机,直接更改以上设备的参数什么的。对的,这其实就是FishBit的理念,可以让你轻松玩转水族箱的简单监测仪和控制器。

你拿到手的将是什么?

FishBitBETA是一个可以检测水的pH、温度、盐度的监测仪,一个可以控制其他水族箱设备比如灯光和水泵的控制器,一个在手机上或是浏览器上使用的App。

▼FishBit的正确使用方法

用上FishBit要花费那么几分钟的功夫。

• 1、首先当然是下载FishBit的APP辣,然后输入WiFi信息。

• 2、然后把监测仪放进水族箱,FishBit马上开始工作了,pH、温度、盐度一目了然。

• 3、把水族箱其他设备比如灯啊水泵啊加热器什么的连到控制器上,在APP上点几个选择键设置一下自动化。

• 4、端杯茶,拿本书,一边欣赏鱼儿们曼妙的泳姿,一边品味心头的宁静吧。

就这么简单,我不骗你!不信你自己去试试咯(摊手)。

EcoQube C生态水族箱:养鱼肥料来种花 永远不用换水

如果你喜欢养鱼,那必须不能错过EcoQube C这个产品了。它是一个完全形成自然生态系统的超牛水族箱,永远不用换水,鱼儿排出的屎壳郎君全部可以被自消化。其实早在2013年11月,第一代 EcoQube就上线Kickstarter进行众筹,那时候就筹得了超过双倍的目标资金,下一年的10月,第一批EcoQube众筹产品陆续抵达用户手中。而今天,EcoQube团队希望将这个神奇的水族箱升级,推出更人性化更节能有效的新产品,那就是现在正在众筹的EcoQube C!

什么是EcoQube C?

实际上,EcoQube C的“心脏”是一个让鱼和植物能够共生的过滤器。这个过滤器被嵌入进一个水槽中,加上一些水生植物,这样就形成一个一体化水族箱系统。EcoQube C的构造如下图所示:

最上面是全频谱可调节LED灯,在它的正下方有一颗植物,而这个LED灯正是为了植物成长而专门进行优化的。最下面就是水族箱了,它采用丙烯酸材料制成,持久耐用,超轻且非常干净透明。水族箱包含自动计时功能,内部采用静音生态过滤系统,可选紫外线LED消毒灯。另外,整个系统采用低电压供电,耗能极低。

EcoQube C工作流程

EcoQube C是一个完全不需要换水的水族箱,它是如何做到的呢?这就是我们要膜拜的地方,虽然它只有小小的“个头”,不过却包含了一个小自然生态系统:首先鱼儿会产生各种屎壳郎君;然后过滤器会将这些屎壳郎君转化为植物的肥料;水族箱上面的植物吸收肥料,再加上LED光合作用,会逐渐成长,并清洁下面的水源。

过滤器是EcoQube C最关键的部分,它有三层过滤系统:一是运用海绵的机械过滤;二是采用细菌的生物过滤;第三层是植物根部的化学过滤。所以过滤效果大家可以完全放心,只要装扮好自己的EcoQube C水族箱,然后往里面加够水,再把鱼儿放进去,最后就尽情欣赏这个无声却那么真实的生态循环系统吧。

怎么地?就是比传统的好!

喜欢养鱼的朋友一定知道,传统水族箱只是简单地将鱼儿排泄的“氨儿”转换成硝酸盐,硝酸盐容易导致藻类丛生,所以隔一段时间都要给水族箱换水。

而我们棒棒哒EcoQube C就不一样,通过增加特别的过滤器和过滤器上的植物系统,使得任何东西都可以得到循环再利用,且不会导致水族箱里的水变脏变绿,真的不需要换水哟!

且经过研究者们的测试,由于屎壳郎君的重大作用,水族箱上方的植物比正常养的还要健康、绿色许多,叶子都特别干净新鲜。所以说,EcoQube C水族箱完全成为一道超自然风景线,摆在家里、办公室里都很合适。

价格信息

如果你觉得EcoQube C这么厉害的水族箱会价格昂贵,那就大错特错了,不整点便宜的玩意儿怎么对得起各位看官。一套包括过滤器、LED灯的完整EcoQube C水族箱价格仅为79美元(约合人民币491元),我们来算算差不多尺寸的传统水族箱的价格吧,首先水族箱本身大约要200元,加个过滤器150元,最后来个LED灯要300元,谁划算还用我用计算器加一遍给你看?大家可前去Kickstarter项目主页查看详情,据悉,众筹产品将于今年11月出货。

How to Grow Freshwater Aquarium Plants

Edited by Dvortygirl, Strideth, Krystle, Denis Camargo and 42 others

Real plants do wonders for aquariums, providing fish with oxygen and even food. They keep the water chemistry more balanced, and provide scenery for you and hiding places for fish and other tank inhabitants. They’re easy to care for, too. Aquarium plants are part of our biological filtration. They do this by helping to remove harmful ammonia (which fish naturally excrete into the water). Many aquatic plants will help remove ammonia but not nitrites.
Some aquarists use this information in natural aquariums. When planting aquatic plants, we can create new underwater worlds, or try to imitate nature.

Steps

  1. Grow Freshwater Aquarium Plants Step 1.jpg

    Select the plants you want to grow. It pays to do a bit of reading at this point, so check out aquarium forums and other sources of information. Consider the tank size, the scene you wish to produce and the size you want your plant(s) to be. Remember, plants grow! Want something with lots of leaves, or more of a moss? How about something your fish will be able to eat?

    • You can find tiny, dwarf aquarium plants that grow only an inch or two tall, or obtain much larger plants for larger tanks.

    Get a cutting of the plant you want to grow. Either get an inexpensive, small cutting and wait for it to grow larger or purchase a more costly, larger plant. Plants can be obtained at local pet shops, or a hobbiest online can provide you with cuttings,usually for a small cost. Either way, be careful of what you introduce to your tank. Plants can carry physical inhabitants from snails and shrimp to bacteria and diseases. Always look for a source that seems to practice good tank hygiene.

    Inspect the plant closely for snails and other visitors. Some of the tiniest water snails, no more than a couple of millimeters long, are rapid breeders. Unless you have loaches or other fish that will snack on them, they’ll quickly take over your tank. You may quarantine a new plant outside your tank for a few days, to see if any snails appear.

    Most aquarium plants prefer to live entirely submerged, so don’t let them dry out. If your tank is not quite ready or if you want to grow more of your plants than will fit in a tank, use a bucket or bin of water.

    Anchor the plants. Depending on the plant, this may be mostly an aesthetic matter, to keep them from bobbing around loose. For mosses, consider tying them loosely with string to a rock until they become established.

    • In general, do not bury the rhizomes, which usually are thicker and greener than roots or stem, in gravel, as burying them can cause the whole plant to quickly die, also try not to bury the crown just above the roots on other plants that need to be in the substrate .

    Provide light. Aquarium plants, like any others, require light for photosynthesis. Check the light requirements of the plants you are choosing, many require high amounts of added light. Low light plants will do well if your tank has plenty of light from windows. Otherwise, plan to light your tank with a fluorescent full spectrum tank light.

    • It’s recommended that when you start out, stick to less than 2.5 fluorescent watts per gallon unless you put a carbon dioxide system in place. [1]

    • “Cool White” or “Daylight” fluorescent bulbs are cheap, efficient, and effective enough for most purposes. [2]

    Add fish. While not strictly required, fish waste will help to nourish the plants. The plants, in turn, will keep the water conditions better for the fish by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen during the daytime, at night the plants of course give off CO2. Some plants are good at removing ammonia or nitrites. If you don’t have fish already, wait a week after adding the plants before you introduce them to the lush environment you’re creating.

    Change the water periodically. Plants do not need water changes the same way that fish do, but it is still a good idea to change the plant water when changing your fish water. Do not siphon in your plant bed, as you may kill and injure them. Run your siphon over the top of the soil in which the plants are planted, and make sure you don’t damage them.

    Remove algae. Algae growing on tank walls or on plant leaves competes with plants for light. You can remove algae manually by scrubbing or scraping the walls of your tank weekly when changing the water and rubbing the plant’s leaves gently between your fingers. The far easier method, though, is to let your tank’s inhabitants do the job for you. Shrimp and several catfish eagerly feed on algae and can help to keep your tank far cleaner with little or no effort on your part.

    Divide or prune the plants if they outgrow your tank. Depending on your tank and your plants, you may find you have too much plant soon. Choosing slow-growing plants can help keep them small, but it can also mean having less plant and waiting longer for your plants to fill out. Find the right balance for your tank.

  12. Tips

  • Glass or Ghost Shrimp are freshwater shrimp. They get along with tetras and guppies.
  • Aquarium plants come in all sorts of sizes and colors, so look around a bit before you choose.
  • Have fun. This is an opportunity to enjoy some plants that air-breathers don’t usually enjoy, and most aquarium plants are easy to care for.
  • If you do find snails, pick them off your plants and glass before they start breeding.
  • Start small and add plants slowly.
  • Consider the basic chemistry of your water supply. Many municipal water systems are removing radium by exchanging sodium ions. This water ‘softening’ has a profound effect on water quality over time. Consider adding blackwater tonic, or a moss filter.
  • Choose plants that are compatible with your fish, some fish will eat or destroy them.[1]
  • Aquarium plants can be good food for your goldfish or other fish [2]
  • Pay attention to the nitrogen cycle:[3] Plants do not use nitrogen in the same form that fish supply that element.
Warnings
  • Do not dispose of aquarium plants in local waterways. Many of them are non-native and do not belong there. Instead, if you have excess plants, let them dry out and dispose of them in the trash. Invasive aquatic plants reduce water quality impacting fisheries and recreational opportunities, costing millions of dollars.
  • If you keep Blue Crayfish, be aware that they will uproot and eat water plants.
  • Snails will not spontaneously appear on aquarium plants. Their eggs and larvae can come in with new plants. Examine the undersides of the plants leaves. Many snails prefer a diet of algae. Certain snails can be beneficial to aquariums as they help maintain water quality, others are pests.
  • You might also find hydras,small animals that look like tiny sea anemones. Remove them because hydras can eat very small fish, but mainly feed on small invertebrates such as Daphnia and Cyclops.
