Water is the Most Vital Part

The primary thing you need to care about in your aquarium is the water - it is what keeps your fish alive, it is what helps the plants keep growing, and it is what makes the aquarium look clear and clean. That’s why you need to do your best to ensure the water is clean, well-filtered, and contains all the minerals and oxygen necessary for fish and plant health. This isn’t an easy task but there are some steps you should take:

1. Replacing 10% of the tank’s water every week: there is certainly a lot that goes into making sure the tank water is clean, but one of the easiest and fastest things you can do to ensure the water is clean is replacing 10 percent of it each week. This is by no means the only thing you need to do, but it is a great first step to ensure that your fish don’t die from too much pollution.

2. Installing a filter: installing a filter takes away a lot of the physical work you need to do, it’ll make the water circulate and doesn’t let it stagnate, it filters out all the debris and the dust that will accumulate over time, and the more advanced ones will even regulate the chemicals inside the water not allowing its PH to rise to dangerous levels for the fish. It is indispensable for larger fish tanks/aquariums. You just need to make sure that the filter is well-taken care of and the filter media is changed regularly.

3. Taking care of the plants’ needs: when you are regulating the water, you need to keep the plants in mind. Of course, not every aquarium has plants in it, and you should feel free to skip this section if yours doesn’t. But if you do have plants in the tank, it isn’t an easy job ensuring they are healthy and growing. The tap water that you fill the tank with doesn’t have many necessary materials needed for plant growth, so you’ll have to supplement them through various other means.
