Pets Not Pests

Pets as Friends, Not as Nuisances.

Got fish? Clean your aquarium weekly. You do not need to remove the fish. Take these simple steps.

-Scrape algae off the inside of the glass walls with an algae scrubber or nonabrasive mitt. Also scrub rocks or decorations with algae. No need to remove them.

-Trim excess growth and dried leaves on live plants.

-Siphon off 15 to 20 percent of the water and replace it with clean tap water that’s been allowed to sit in an aquarium-use-only bucket for 24 hours.

-Use a vacuum cleaner that vacuums up decaying organic matter. Change the aquarium filter as recommended. Disconnect tubing and clean it with a filter brush.
