evonner Posted March 18 Share Posted March 18 I hear so many conflicting arguments about tank and filter maintenance. I am re-doing my log templates and I am curious about other peoples schedules. I do 25-30% water changes weekly and vacuum poopoo, lol. I algae clean the glass (only the front now that I have snails). I check the plants and tank ornaments for slime or needing to be cleaned off or trimmed. I check my filter media, swish in bucket of tank water if needed. I have coarse sponge, less coarse cut to size bulk sponge, filter floss, bio-max. I have coarse pre-filter sponges on all my intakes, I swish them weekly. I replace the bulk sponge when swishing is hopeless. I replace only half of the filter floss at time. I have never changed my main coarse sponge or bio-max. Monthly, I clean the filter components and impeller. I am running HOB Fluval Aqua Clear filters on all tanks. And bio-sponge filters wtih an air stone inside, I swish those when needed. My 10 gallon tank has an Aqua Clean 30. My 29 gallon tank has two Aqua Clear 50's running on low with baffle. So, I'm curious what others do and if anyone has any recommendations to my routine. Much appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
