More about this event

Fishes live in intimate contact with their watery environment. Moreover, they rely on the qualities of water for many biological processes including respiration, nutrition, hydration, excretion and more. It is no wonder then that all persons dealing with aquatic animal health always stress on the importance of water quality. Water testing can help you quickly identify issues with water if it is the case. It will also allow us to modify their course of action or treatment plan.

This presentation gives an overview of each water parameter as it applies to fish health, and practical ways to correct water quality problems. It will cover the following topics: nitrogen cycle, temperature, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, carbonate hardness, general hardness, dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and salinity.
