How to wash a fish aquarium

Aquariums can be a great way to keep fish and other aquatic animals, but they need to be kept clean. Follow these simple steps to wash your aquarium correctly.

Wash your fish aquarium

To clean your fish aquarium, you will need: 



-Soap or dishwashing detergent

-Shower head nozzle

-Container to hold water

1. Fill a bucket with water and add soap or detergent. Turn on the shower head and aim the nozzle into the top of the bucket. 

2. Slowly pour the water into the bucket, using circular motions to help remove any dirt or sediment. 

3. Drain the water and refill the bucket with fresh water. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the tank is clean.

Use a clarifier

One of the simplest ways to keep fish healthy and happy is by keeping their water clean. One way to do this is by using a clarifier. A clarifier helps remove excess bacteria, organic material, and other pollutants from the water.

To use a clarifier, first add it to the fish tank and then wait until the bubbles have stopped bubbling before turning off the filter. Doing this will ensure that all of the pollutants are removed from the water. If you don’t want to use a clarifier, make sure to keep your water clean by regularly changing the water and adding new plants or rocks. Doing so will help reduce the amount of pollution in your fish tank.

Use household cleaners 

There are many household cleaners that can be used to clean a fish aquarium. Simply wet the entire tank and pour in the cleaner. Using a scrubbing brush, work the cleaner into all the crevices and around the fish. Be careful not to get it on the fish themselves. Once the tank is clean, rinse it out with water.

Sanitize the filter

When it comes to keeping a fish tank, one of the most important things you can do is keep the water clean and healthy. One way to make sure the water is clean is to use a filter. However, it's important to keep in mind that filters need to be periodically cleaned.

One way to clean a filter is to sanitize it. To sanitize a filter, fill a pot with about 1 inch of water and add 1 teaspoon of bleach per gallon of water. Bring the water to a boil and let it cool before using it to sanitize the filter.

Check the water parameters

Before cleaning any aquarium, it is important to make sure the water parameters are in check. To do this, first use a home test kit to measure the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels. If they are all within safe ranges, you can proceed with the cleaning.

To clean an aquarium, you will need:

-Q-tips or soft cloths

-Baking soda


- cup or bucket

- Fish netting (optional)

1. Wet down one side of the cloth with water and wring out excess moisture. Sprinkle enough baking soda on top to coat the cloth. Gently rub the wet cloth against the glass sides of the aquarium, applying pressure and working in a circular motion. Scrub until the dirt and algae are removed. Rinse off the cloth and dry off the aquarium.

2. Repeat on the other side of the aquarium. If desired, use a fish net to catch any small fish that may have fallen into the tank while cleaning.
