It is important not to let the thought of cleaning the tank put you off buying your first fish tank as the pleasures of owning your own aquarium will greatly outweigh the limited amount of time needed for a cleaning routine. An ideal schedule to perform regular fish tank maintenance is every two to three weeks. The great thing about fish tank supplies is that they are so easy to obtain with so many specialist online stores and local pet stores around, making it simple to set up an aquarium.
Once you have the "must haves" in place, then you can start choosing the fun and pretty decorations that will enhance the beauty of the aquarium while showing portions of your own personality. It doesn`t matter what direction you lean in for decorations. You can choose to be elegant or quirky. It`s totally up to you in the end what sort of atmosphere you want to create for your fish, yourself and others who may want to view the aquarium.
The first step is to thoroughly clean the tank. Don`t skip this important step just because the glass of the aquarium looks clean. Use a mild detergent in warm water to scrub out the tank. Rinse out the tank thoroughly to completely remove all traces of debris and detergent. Flush out the cleaned tank several times with fresh water to ensure there are no traces of detergent left behind. Also clean all equipment that will be used in your new aquarium fish tank and rinse thoroughly. Even a tiny amount of leftover detergent can kill your fish so do not skimp on the rinsing process. Gravel should be rinsed under running water until the water runs clear. Plants can be stored in a clean bucket of water while you set up your fish tank.
