How To Perform Water Changes & Clean fish tank With Pump
If you want to do a complete water changes on a dirty fish tank, you’ll lose all the beneficial bacteria. If you have a Marineland filter it has a bacteria wheel that can help keep some bacteria in your tank. Don’t start completely over unless your tank is in pretty poor condition with a brownish water color. However, you can clean your existing aquarium with the purchase of a Homasy 80 GPH (300L/H, 4W) Submersible Water Pump, Ultra Quiet For Pond, Aquarium, Fish Tank Fountain, Powerful Water Pump with 5.9ft (1.8m) Power Cord and Clear Vinal Tubing 10 Feet
Frequently doing water changes getting rid of waste, nitrate and unwanted ammonia in water is critical for your tanks success. No matter how good your fish tank filter is water changes are still needed to resupply nutrients in water. Place pump in tank and let tank drain for 10-15 min.
Drain tank and as aquarium is draining with pump this gives you enough time to clean fish tank decorations and change out fish tank filters with new ones.
Time to refill your fish tank aquarium! after all this has been completed it’s a great time to reverse this process and find a big bucket and place Pump in it. Turn on sink and maintain water in bucket and place your tube back in tank and plug your pump in for 10 to 15 min carefully watching to make sure you don’t overfill tank. I like to turn pump down and refill quite slowly because I like my tanks heater to heat the water and not shock and kill my fish.
I like to add the aqua safe product in my tank so that it removes chlorine from tap water. I would suggest changing water, filters regularly to optimize your fishes tank experience and prolong their lives. Thank you!
