Aquarium Maintenance Tips
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 and replacing or upgrading parts when necessary.
Clean Carefully, Clean Often
You can easily keep algae from becoming a permanent fixture in your aquarium with regular cleaning. Remove unsightly algae with scrubbers and scrapers. The Doctor's Foster and Smith Algae Scrubber powers away algae to make short work of routine cleaning. Scrubber handle allows extra leverage to tackle even stubborn algae.
Keeping substrate/gravel clean and free of detritus may seem a daunting task, but efficient filters and gravel cleaners simplify and speed the process like never before. The Python No Spill Clean N' Fill attaches effortlessly to your faucet to drain, clean, and fill your aquarium. You'll easily change water and wash gravel while minimizing disturbance to fish.
No aquarium-cleaning regimen is complete without a sturdy bucket and an assortment of nets to skim away surface debris and catch fish. If you prefer dry hands and arms during cleaning, invest in a pair of Heavy Duty Aqua Gloves. Or, use tongs or grabber to reach items on the aquarium bottom.
Of course, don't forget to check your filters during each water change, and replace media according to manufacturer's guidelines.
