As well as maintaining your Aquarium to make sure it stays in the best condition possible, having your tank cleaned is the second vital task needed to be done.
Aquarium cleaning is not done on a regular basis like the maintenance, but will help play a vital part in the up keep of your tank.
It’s probably the only time your Aquarium goes back to the basic shell while being cleaned.
The tank gets a build up of fish waste, old plants, algae and other dirt which settles on the bottom. After time the filters get dirtier quicker and need cleaning more often, this is because of the dirt and waste build up.
These are just some of the processes when your tank is cleaned:
Remove the fish and plants from the tank and put into holding tanks.
Scrub the tank of algae and remove all the waster and dirt.
Service the pump and filtration system.
Service the UVC.
Re-fill the tank with part original water and part tap water.
Put the fish and plants back into the tank.
Medicate fish if necessary.
