Ocean Floor Recommended Aquarium Maintenance Schedule

Protect your investment with these periodic checks and maintenance tasks.


  • Visual inspection of your fish during feeding. Watch for behavioral changes and signs of stress or disease, as they may indicate a potential problem.
  • Listen to, and look at your equipment to ensure that it is operating correctly.
  • Check the temperature of the water.
  • Feed your fish twice each day.
  • Watch to see that all fish are eating. Remove any remaining food after 10 minutes.


Every Week:

  • Monitor the number of fish in your aquarium. Death and decomposition can result in increases in nitrates and ammonia levels.


Twice Monthly:

  • Change between 15 and 20 percent of the water in your tank.
  • Wash or vacuum your gravel.
  • Clean algae from the inside walls of your aquarium.
  • Rinse out your filter cartridge(s)


Every Month:          

  • Filter maintenance: replace inserts, floss, carbon, and cartridges.
  • Check the aquarium light for correct operation
  • Check all of your connections, skimmers, and tubes for proper operation.

By following this regular schedule of aquarium maintenance you will be able to enjoy your aquarium and fish for many years to come.
