Water changes are one of the biggest challenges fish tank owners face when it comes to aquarium maintenance.  We do it for a living so we had to find the best way.

The easiest way to do water changes is by using a hose.  We use hoses with our clients as it reduces spillage and clean up.

Siphon out the water and add water from the tap.  However as almost all tap water contains both chlorine and chloramine you must add a de-chlorinator to remove them.  Alternatively if you use buckets and do not have a de-chlorinator, let the tap water sit for at least 48 hours before using.

Change about 25% of the water once in a month and make sure the water you are adding has the same temperature and pH.

Always buy the next size filter up from whatever the tank size indicates. So if you get a 20 gallon tank buy a filter for a 30 – 40 gallon tank.  It is really the only way to ensure the tank will stay clean and we recommend this to all our customers.

We keep fish tanks clean and healthy without you doing any of the work.
