Anyone can maintain a tidy and healthy aquarium. It's not a tough job, but it does need routine attention and the best materials. There are daily and weekly jobs along with the essential job of tank cleaning with partial water changes.

Every day, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about five minutes. Also, examine your fish to ensure they are healthy and are acting normally. Lastly, it's important to check the water temperature. Each week, check the pH, nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia levels. If it's a saltwater tank, check the salinity. Also, consider equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is working correctly.

How often should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to replace? It depends on the size of the tank, the number of fish, and whether it's saltwater. Generally, you need to swap out 10-20% of the water every one to three weeks. 

Follow these steps in your regular cleaning:

Prepare replacement water. If you use tap water, use a water filter to eliminate 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 correctly control the flow 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, wash them in the water you removed and quickly reinstall} them to avoid losing crucial bacteria. Filters that contain carbon and various other absorbers will need to be frequently replaced.

Add the replacement water.

Clean your tank's outside with a proper cleaner and towel.
