Our staff has the experience and knowledge to answer your questions regarding aquarium upkeep and help you pick the best products to make the job a breeze.
Anyone can keep a clean and healthy aquarium. It's not a challenging task, but it does call for regular attention and the best materials. There are daily and weekly tasks along with the critical job of tank cleaning with partial water changes.
Everyday, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about 5 minutes. Also, examine your fish to ensure they are healthy and are behaving 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, take a look at equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is functioning effectively.
How frequently should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to change? It depends on the size of the tank, the number 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 routine cleaning:
Prepare replacement water. If you use tap water, use a water filter to get rid of toxins. 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 regulate 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 prevent losing crucial germs. 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 fabric.

We have been treating our Great Dane for 2 yrs with liver disease, he was on expensive medication that I had to force down him . Unfortunately that medication is constantly back ordered , a bottle last 15 days and is 75$ ( yes because I have a giant dog). I still wasn’t getting any results from it. I started him on a supplement chew 6 months ago with only increments of 10 coming down in values if at all . I reached out to debbie, and we discussed some options… well we have been on “liver defense” for almost 5 weeks. I repeated necessary blood work and my boys values have dropped buy 140 points in just that little time . my boy is doing great and is only on vetri-science liver chews and liver defense , for his liver . The only results I’m seeing is after adding the defense! We are super thankful for your help debbie !! And we love you !!
Customer service here is incredible!! The owner brought to my attention that there was a recall on the food I was feeding my dog and turns out I had the recalled lot at home. My dog has food allergies. She helped me to find a replacement food and offered free samples and a refund for the bag of food that didn't work out. The owner called me the next day to see how my dog did with the new food. Really cares about animals. Best Customer service I have had in years. Great example of the importance of shopping local. Thank you Pet Playhouse!
