Whether you have crash-landed into the vast tropical jungle or are there by choice, in order to stay alive and well, you will quickly need to become familiar with your surroundings so you can implement a few crucial survival tips for obtaining the basic necessities such as water, food, warmth, and shelter. Search for water in streams, lakes, and the water vine, which can hold several gallons at a time.
Depending how far into the tropics you are, you will likely not need a fire for warmth, but you may want one to boil water, cook meat, or signal for rescue.
If you happen to come across one, a cave is an excellent choice for shelter since it provides shade and cool temperatures, as well as protection from the elements and predation by creatures higher up in the food chain, or at the very least, injuries from those that dwell in the open jungle. There are three common methods in acclimating your tropical fish in a newly set-up aquarium. The Floating Bag Method is probably the most popular acclimation technique that works well. Ideally, you’re suspending the bag in a prior set-up quarantine tank but, unfortunately, most starting hobbyist do not use a quarantine tank. After you leave the pet store you would want to go straight home to prevent accumulation of ammonia in the plastic bag or container, when the fish eliminate wastes in such limited amount of water.
When you are already home, open the container and remove about a quarter of the water from the bag. The Bucket Method is virtually similar to the floating bag method, however rather than floating the bag in the aquarium, you’re putting the bag inside a clean bucket. This method is advised for most saltwater tropical fish and invertebrates since they can be intolerable to extreme level of pH level, certain density and other waste chemical changes.
To perform this method, get a bucket, vegetable clippers with a suction cup to secure the tube in the aquarium and sturdy air pump tubing that is adequately long to pull out from your aquarium to the bucket.

Start by collecting small sticks, dry grasses and weeds, and dead leaves, and create a tight tinder pile. But a cave is probably going to be low on the list of probable shelter options, so a little elbow grease and ingenuity with palm leaves, fallen branches, vines, and other found materials will likely be your best bet. You just need to be very meticulous when suspending the bag full of unknown water in your aquarium.
After you‘ve been in the hobby for some time and experience any kind of fish problems you’ll soon have enough experience and realize the essence of a simple quarantine aquarium.
This method is better than the floating method since you don’t need to be anxious about any of the bag water adding to the aquarium.
Place one end of the tubing into the vegetable clipper and then situate the vegetable clipper into the aquarium. If you are doing this technique for most freshwater tropical fish, you should be great doing it for at least an hour or so before adding the tropical fish to your aquarium. Prior to drinking, you will first need to start a fire and boil the water in a pan to purify it.
Most insects are safe to eat as long as they aren’t brightly colored or unpleasant smelling. Make sure you gather slightly larger sticks for kindling and fuel for the fire’s duration.

Float the container in the aquarium.  After 10 minutes, add about 1 cup of your aquarium water to the bag.
If you are doing this method on saltwater tropical fish, you should take two to three hours for the acclimation procedure to be done. Beetles have a good amount of nutrition but need to be roasted or boiled prior to eating to kill off any bodily parasites. If you don’t have a lighter or fire starting tool with you, you can use two sticks to create friction, or reflect sunlight to ignite your tinder pile.
For a signal fire, you’ll want to use living branches and leaves, as these will create a thick white smoke with little flame. After this, use a small fish net to get them out of the container and slowly place the fish into the aquarium. Avoid plants with umbrella-shaped flowers with seeds inside of them, plants with leaves that come in groups of three, and plants with shiny leaves. If you’re having some difficulty using the knot to control the drip rate, any kind of strong clippers can do the job. Many species of mushrooms are poisonous and should be avoided as well unless you are familiar with the fungi of the region.
