Proper Aquarium Cleaning Tips
Before vacuuming or filling, set the water temperature from the faucet to the same temperatures as the water currently in the aquarium. Adjust the Gravel Tube Valve as you clean so that the gravel is lifted and agitated inside the gravel tube while the amount of dirty water being discarded in the sink is at a minimum. To stop the water flow at any time while either vacuuming or filling, completely close the Gravel Tube Valve.
Attach Water Flow Assembly to the faucet using the Faucet Adaptor.
Submerge Gravel Tube in aquarium water.
Open Water Flow Assembly Valve and close Gravel Tube Valve.
Turn on faucet. Open Gravel Tube Valve to begin vacuuming.
Close Water Flow Assembly Valve and open Gravel Tube Valve.

Remove Water Flow Assembly or Gravel Tube from your Aqueon Aquarium Water Changer.
Firmly push Extension Tubing and existing Water Changer tubing over Hose Barbs on Double-Ended Connector. Slide Compression Nut back down Flexible Tubing and tighten each nut.

Consistent, thorough maintenance is vital to the ongoing health of your aquarium and its inhabitants. The right supplies in your aquarium "toolbox" can streamline and simplify the process of cleaning your aquarium.
Regular water changes are critical to maintaining a healthy underwater environment. In addition to replenishing trace elements absorbed by inhabitants or other biological processes, water changes reduce nitrate levels which are constantly increasing.
