Watching fish swim gracefully in clear waters seem to have that hypnotic effect on people. Maybe it’s their flowing movement; maybe it’s the live plants that seem to dance and wave at you; or maybe it’s the lighting effects of your aquarium. Whatever it is, aquariums have that effect that reduces stress and calms your mind. In fact, some people spend minutes, if not hours, just staring at their aquariums watching their aquatic pets swimming back and forth in their tank. Well, this is only true for clear tanks with clean waters; because dirty tanks and poor water condition are never good for any fish; and only cause stress and poor health; and may even lead to death.
There are many reasons why fish die in a tank. Stress, inappropriate size of tank, overfeeding, incompatible tankmates, poor water conditions, disease, and so much more. But one common cause of death in aquarium fish is ammonia poisoning.
Ammonia, which is the major waste product of fish is toxic to their health at certain levels. Ammonia poisoning is one of the biggest cause of death in aquarium fish, most commonly in new aquariums, especially when immediately stocked to full capacity. When allowed to accumulate to toxic levels, fish cannot extract energy from feed efficiently and can fall into a coma and die. Trace amounts are generally harmless, although they can still lead to problems over time.
