Aquarium Maintenance NYC

How Much Maintenance Does an Aquarium Need?

Fish tanks can make any space stand out, but they can also be tough to maintain. Setting up an aquarium is a big commitment. You need to make sure that you have enough time and resources to care for your fish, clean the tank, change the water regularly and feed them properly. Most people don’t have the time or the skills to care for their aquariums.

1. Aquariums need to be cleaned every two to three weeks

Aquarium water can build up a lot of dirt and other gunk over just one week. That is why it is so crucial that you keep on top of keeping your tank clean. Aquatic life will be healthier and live longer if kept in a clean environment.

The same goes for luxury aquariums. Because luxury aquariums are more expensive to buy and maintain, they require even more of your time. That’s why Okeanos Group not only installs luxury aquariums but will also maintain them for life.

2. You will need to replace the water in your tank every few months

You should replace fish tank water every few months because the nitrates and phosphates from fish waste accumulate. Without the proper care, diseases can occur as bacterias grow within stagnant pools of dirty aquarium water.

When it comes to your pets’ homes, you want to make sure you fulfill their needs for a healthy life. How do you maintain water quality in an aquarium? Here are a few tips on how to care for your aquarium:

  • Use a water conditioner to remove chlorine and other chemicals from tap water before adding it to the aquarium.
  • Install an ultraviolet filter that removes bacteria, algae, and other impurities from your tank’s water.
  • Keep a close eye on your fish – if they are gasping at the surface of the water or have red streaks along their body, you may need to change out some of the water to lower their pH level. 

3. Care for your aquarium by monitoring your fish’s diet

Fish are an essential part of the aquarium and bring it to life. However, to properly care for your aquarium, you must monitor how much your fish are being fed. Overfeeding can lead to sludge buildup and higher levels of ammonia. For your aquarium’s environment to be balanced, your aquatic life mustn’t get overfed. Sludge buildup can lead to disease buildup, which can cause your marine life to have eye infections or swim bladder dysfunction.
