Installing your Aquarium
Thoroughly rinse the aquarium, cover and filter media using fresh water and a damp cloth. Never use soap on any component placed in your aquarium as soap is harmful to fish. NOTE: Place aquarium on a level, sturdy surface, away from any electrical equipment, direct sunlight, drafts, heat sources or high traffic areas.
Position filter media, pump and output nozzle.
Using the Allen Key, secure light unit onto aquarium.
When filling aquarium with water, add the correct dose of tap water conditioner and biological aquarium additive (sold separately). Note: Consult your fish dealer for proper species and fish stocking levels.
Maintaining your Aquarium NOTE: To ensure the well being of aquarium inhabitants, it is essential to maintain your aquarium. At the very minimum, remove 20% of the water once a week and replace with fresh water that is of similar temperature to your tank and treated with the correct dose of aquarium water conditioners.
NOTE: Regular replacement of the Fluval Filter Media is essential to ensure optimal performance. The filter media should be changed alternately in order to maintain continuous biological activity. To enhance bacterial actions, pour a dose of Nutrafin Cycle Biological Water Conditioner onto your filter inserts each time you change the media.

Mechanical filtration can greatly improve the health of most aquariums, and is also important for the efficiency of your biological filtration. The process is simple: mechanical media strains solid debris.
Biological filtration is the action of bacteria breaking down dangerous ammonia, converting it to nitrite, and then converting nitrite to less toxic nitrate. This article discusses how the process works.
