    Hello everyone,
    I love fish farming. So I made an aquarium in the living room of the family. In order to help the fish get the best habitat, I clean the tank regularly. But I do not know how to properly clean the aquarium, hope everyone can tell me.
    Thanks everyone.

    A weekly 10% water change with premixed water (i.e. mixed to the proper salinity the day before) is the bulk of it. You can clean detritus off the sand with a gravel vac but be careful or you'll remove your sand. Otherwise, clean the glass inside and out and call it a day! If you have a sump, clean the socks out (rinse them out in the old tank water) weekly, dump the skimmer as needed and you can clean out any other media or detritus as needed.
