DAILY AQUARIUM MAINTENANCE

  • Observe all aquarium inhabitants. Perform a quick visual check to ensure that there is no disease, injury, and/or abnormal behavior. 
  • Verify temperature and confirm that all support equipment is functioning correctly (filters, heaters, lighting, etc.). 
  • Remove any dead fish, plants, or obvious debris (such as plant leaves attached to intake strainer of filter). 

WEEKLY AQUARIUM MAINTENANCE

  • Perform a partial water change, 5 to 10 percent is recommended. Use a gravel washer to extract trapped waste from the gravel. Partial water changes on a regular basis will provide stable water quality and maintain ideal conditions. 
  • Clean fluorescent tube(s) and fixture. This will maintain consistent light levels. 
  • Clean inner and outer glass surfaces. This will eliminate any algae accumulation and ensure full viewing pleasure. 
  • Test water. This is important particularly for reef and planted aquariums. 

MONTHLY AQUARIUM MAINTENANCE

  • Perform filter maintenance (preventative maintenance of moving parts, such as the impeller). Replace filter media (ex.: Carbon) as per manufacturer's recommendations and in accordance with test kit results. 
  • Check supplies, food, water conditioners and all other regularly used items.
