Anyone can maintain a tidy and healthy fish tank. It's not a difficult job, but it does need regular attention and the best products. There are daily and weekly tasks in addition to the essential job of tank cleaning with partial water modifications.

Everyday, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about 5 minutes. Also, check your fish to ensure they are healthy and are acting 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, look at equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is functioning effectively.

How often should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to change? It depends on the dimension of the tank, the variety 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 contaminants. 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 manage the circulation 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 avoid losing essential microorganisms. Filters that contain carbon and various other absorbers will need to be regularly replaced.

Add the replacement water.

Clean your tank's outside with an appropriate cleaner and fabric.
