The process of adapting an animal to its new environment. Typically performed by floating the bag containing the fish, invertebrate or coral in the tank water in order to adjust the specimen to the aquarium's water temperature. This step can be followed by slowly replacing the water in the bag with that of the existing tank water, in case there are differing water parameters which may stress the new specimen.

The term given to artificial lighting which produces a very blue spectrum of light. This is used in aquariums to recreate the light which penetrates water deeper than 30 feet. This is essential for the photosynthetic algae of some deeper water corals. This type of light is also used by aquarists to recreate a dawn/dusk lighting scheme within their aquarium.

Ammonia (NH3), the combination of Nitrogen and Hydrogen, is the first by-product in the Nitrogen Cycle. The breakdown of waste materials and decay produces Ammonia and is extremely toxic to all fish in the aquarium. Nitrosomonas bacteria will take the Ammonia and convert it into Nitrites during the Nitrogen Cycle or it can be removed via mechanical filtration.

Anaerobic refers to areas which lack oxygen. These areas promote the production of bacteria which thrives in an oxygen free environment. It is within these areas where Nitrate(NO3) is able to be converted into Nitrogen Gas. While this is a positive process and completes the Nitrogen Cycle, these type of oxygen free environments should be limited to specialized Denitrification units because Anaerobic areas can also create hydrogen sulfide and other toxic substances.
