A healthy aquarium means healthy and happy fish. Odyssey Pets in Dallas, TX has all the tools and the devices to keep that tank in great shape. Our team has the experience and expertise to answer your questions concerning fish tank maintenance and help you select the right items to make the job a breeze.
Anybody can maintain a tidy and healthy fish tank. It's not a hard task, but it does call for routine attention and the best materials. There are daily and weekly tasks along with the crucial job of tank cleaning with partial water changes.
Everyday, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about five minutes. Also, check your fish to ensure they are healthy and are behaving normally. Lastly, it's important to check the water temperature. Each week, check the pH, nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia levels. If it's a saltwater tank, check the salinity. Also, check out equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is functioning correctly.
How often should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to replace? It depends on the dimension of the tank, the number of fish, and whether it's saltwater. Generally, you need to swap out 10-20% of the water every one to three weeks.
Follow these steps in your regular cleaning:
Prepare replacement water. If you use tap water, use a water filter to get rid of contaminants. For saltwater, you'll need special reverse osmosis/deionized water.
Unplug electrical components & remove large accessories.
Siphon water into a container. Siphon along the gravel to remove the waste that builds up there. If you properly regulate the flow with your thumb or a built-in regulator, waste will be sucked out and gravel will fall back into the tank.
Remove algae. Use an algae-cleaning device to help.
Clean your filter. For filters such as a sponge, ceramic rings, and fiber, rinse them in the water you removed and quickly reinstall} them to prevent losing essential microorganisms. Filters that contain carbon and various other absorbers will need to be frequently replaced.
Add the replacement water.
Clean your tank's exterior with an appropriate cleaner and towel.

This place has excellent service with a kind and knowledgeable staff. I was able to find great deals on fish tanks that were actually BETTER than prices online (including Amazon). The store is very clean and welcoming and their aquarium displays are simply charming. I greatly appreciate the fact that they still require masks amidst the pandemic. That to me means they take the safety of their employees, customers, AND their animals seriously.
My only (minor) complaint is that the store specializes primarily on dogs and aquatic animals. Don’t get me wrong; those are two things I’m VERY passionate about, so I always find what I need. But if you’re looking for a specific product for an animal like a large bird or reptile, such as feeder insects, you’ll have to shop for that elsewhere or at least call in advance to see if they have a certain product of that nature available.
Nonetheless, I LOVED it here. They have a wonderful selection of quality products and their fish and other aquatic animals are so beautiful and healthy. Plus they frequently host events for pet owners, which is always fun! I’d give this shop a 10 out of 5 if I could. I look forward to seeing y’all at Aquashella!
Today I took my Doggie Bradley.
I did just a bath nail trim was $50
bath and $7 nail trim. They are so friendly in a rush I forgot to feed Bradley so they did. He wares a flip flop t shirt. they washed it for me.
great bath and he smelled so good
all great customer service.
When looking for a store to buy tropical fish, I found this place accidentally and glad I did. Unlike the Pets-what ever large chain, these folks know their stuff and the tanks are in great shape.
I got busy with work and couldn't finish and they were awesome with accommodating and finishing the packing for me. Thank you very much!
