What is a chemical environment?
      The chemical environment refers to the aspects of the aquarium such as water quality and oxygen level. If the chemical environment is unfavorable the fish and plants cannot live in the aquarium. Fish use oxygen from the aquarium and produce ammonia and solid wastes. Uneaten food rots and pollutes the water. All of these factors affect the quality of the water in the tank. To maintain a good chemical environment an aquarium needs optimum water quality, a good source of oxygen, and a system to remove waste.
