Our team has the experience and expertise to answer your questions concerning aquarium maintenance and help you select the right products to make the task a breeze.

Anybody can keep a clean and healthy aquarium. It's not a hard task, but it does call for regular attention and the right products. There are daily and weekly tasks in addition to the essential job of tank cleaning with partial water adjustments.

Everyday, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about five minutes. Also, inspect your fish to ensure they are healthy and are behaving normally. Lastly, it's important to check the water temperature. Every week, check the pH, nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia levels. If it's a saltwater tank, check the salinity. Also, check out equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is functioning properly.

How frequently should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to change? It depends on the dimension of the tank, the number of fish, and whether it's saltwater. Normally, you need to swap out 10-20% of the water every one to three weeks. 

Follow these steps in your normal cleaning:

Prepare replacement water. If you use tap water, use a water filter to get rid of toxins. For saltwater, you'll need special reverse osmosis/deionized water.

Unplug electrical components & remove large accessories.

Siphon water into a container. Siphon along the gravel to remove the waste that accumulates there. If you effectively regulate the flow with your thumb or a built-in regulator, waste will be sucked out and gravel will fall back into the tank.

Remove algae. Use an algae-cleaning tool to help.

Clean your filter. For filters such as a sponge, ceramic rings, and fiber, rinse them in the water you removed and quickly reinstall} them to prevent losing important bacteria. Filters that contain carbon and other absorbers will need to be regularly replaced.

Add the replacement water.

Clean your tank's exterior with an appropriate cleaner and towel.
