Our personnel has the experience and expertise to address your inquiries regarding aquarium upkeep and to help you pick the ideal products to make the task a breeze.
Any individual can keep a clean and healthy fish tank. It's not a difficult task, but it does call for regular attention and the best supplies. There are regular everyday and weekly tasks along with the important job of tank cleaning with partial water modifications.
Daily, after you feed your fish, move uneaten food after about five mins. Also, inspect your fish to ensure they are healthy and are behaving normally. Examine the water temperature level.
Every week, inspect the pH, nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia levels. If it's a saltwater tank examine the salinity.
Also, look at equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is functioning properly.
How frequently should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to change? It depends on the size of the tank, the variety of fish, and whether it's saltwater. Typically, you need to switch out 10 to 20 percent of the water every 1 to 3 weeks. Odyssey Pets can help you make a decision based upon the specifics of your fish tank.
Follow these steps in your normal cleaning:
Prepare replacement water. If you use faucet water, use a water conditioner to eliminate contaminants. For saltwater, you'll require special reverse osmosis/deionized water.
Disconnect electric elements. Eliminate big ornaments.
Siphon water into a bucket. Siphon along the crushed rock to remove the waste that accumulates there. If you appropriately regulate the flow with your thumb or a built-in regulator, waste will be sucked out and crushed rock will fall back into the tank.
Eliminate algae. Use an algae-cleaning tool to help.
Tidy your filter. For filters such as a sponge, ceramic rings, and fiber, wash them in the water you removed and promptly reinstall them to prevent losing essential germs. Filters that contain carbon and other absorbers will require to be frequently replaced.
Add the replacement water.
Clean your tank's outside with a correct cleaner and cloth.

We had never been to this pet store before and went to investigate their aquarium products and fish selection. The staff was so nice and helpful. The tanks were clean, fish appeared comfortable and healthy. A small and very cool collection of freshwater, saltwater, and coral to select from. Lots of cool tanks and tank set ups as well as aquarium products.
The staff is very friendly. They groomed our dog very well. I like that there's a place for dogs to do their jobs right across from the entrance.
