  1. How often should I change my water

    A partial water change should be administered every 3 – 5 cleans. This can be judged by the smell and clarity of your water. Take out roughly 1/3 of the water and replace this with freshwater. Make sure you top up any evaporated water as needed to.

    Partial water changes should be performed weekly as part of a good maintenance routine. Make sure that you use a water dechlorinator and that the temperature of the water being replaced is similar to the tank water temperature.

  2. How often should I replace my filter media?

    In an external filter media should rarely need replacing. If using activated carbon then this will need replacing about once every 6 weeks. Sponges and biological media rarely need replacing. Sponges can be cleaned using old tank water and put back in to the filter, only replace when they start to fall apart. Biological media only requires a quick swish in old tank water every few months. Do not over clean the biological media and do not use tap water when cleaning as this will remove the beneficial bacteria which is required to process the waste as part of the nitrogen cycle.
