How often do you clean your tank(s)?

  • How often do you clean your tanks, and what do you use to clean them?

    For my planted tank, I honestly never really clean it minus the ugly hard water mark (which I use vinegar to clean) about every 2-4 weeks.

    For my turtle tank, I clean the excess poop and food I find every 4-5 days, and then in that process probably drain about a 3-4 gallons or water and replace it. I figure that the little ecosystem in there should take care of everything else on it’s own.

  • When I had my fish tank I would always do small water cleaning weekly without fail, I had myself in a routine where I would do it at the same day every week so that I knew it would be clean and I would not have any issues. Major cleaning such as completely changing all the water out and cleaning everything within it I would do once a month. I found that this would help keep my tank clean and free from any issues that would arise if I was to leave it any longer.
