Aquarium Safety

This page contains important information about safety precautions to prevent accidents in and around aquariums.


1. Mixing Chemicals
Generally it's not safe to mix chemicals. But on another page we recommend adding both Water Conditioner and Quick Cure to aquariums with cloudy or foamy water. We have been assured by the manufactures that these chemicals are compatible. Do not assume other chemicals can be mixed, until you have checked with the manufactures of those chemicals.

2. Never mix Ammonia with Bleach,
or you will produce chlorine gas. We were told that 90% of accidents from mixing chemicals result from mixing ammonia and bleach, or chemicals that contain them. Click here for information about using ammonia to cycle a new aquarium.

3. Aquarium Stands
It's important to realize that an aquarium full of water is heavy and should have a proper stand. Most aquariums come with a warranty against leaking and cracking. But the warranty is usually void if the aquarium is not placed on an aquarium stand that has been specifically manufactured to support aquariums.

Aquarium stands are available in both wood and steel. Be sure the stand accurately fits the aquarium.


4. Electricity, Glass, and Water
The combination of electricity, glass, and water is not safe for most children. So a warm water aquarium with a heater is not a good choice for young children. A safe combination is a plastic fish bowl without a heater or any other electrical device. We sell a plastic Fish Bowl Kit. Click here for complete information about this Fish Bowl Kit.

Unplug your aquarium heater when you remove more than 2" of water from your aquarium. Elsewhere in this web site we recommend that you replace no more than 2" of water in your aquarium at one time unless you have a catastrophe. You probably do not need to unplug your heater when you remove 2" of water.

If you need to remove more than 2" of water from your aquarium, unplug your aquarium heater first and let it cool of for at least 15 minutes. Otherwise, it will be hot and could burn you, or the glass may crack, when it over heats. Carefully read all the information that the manufacturer supplied with your aquarium heater.


5. Wash Your Hands.
When you finish working on your fish or their home, you should wash your hands. Aquariums, Fish Bowls, and Ponds have the same sorts of bacteria and other pathogens that animals such as dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles have on their bodies. Anytime you touch any of these animals or any of the objects they have touched, you should wash your hands. Also be sure that children are reminded to wash their hands.


This list is not complete. There are many other ways to be hurt around fish and aquariums. You must be alert. Stop and think before you act. Try to visualize what could go wrong and how to avoid accidents.

Seek advice about safety from people who have more experience than you have, and offer your advice to those who have less experience than you have. Do not hesitate to speak up, whenever you see something that looks unsafe.
