Top Fish Tank Cleaning related questions

Why should I hire a professional to clean my fish tank?

Fish tank cleaning is time-consuming and messy. Not only that, if you don’t know what you’re doing, it can be easy to get important details wrong, damage your fish tank, and harm your fish. When you hire a professional, you don’t have to worry about any of that.

How often should I clean my fish tank?

Most fish tanks need a water change every week, with a proper clean every couple of weeks. This will depend on the size of your fish tank, the type of fish, and the type of filter system you use.

What are some signs my fish tank is due for a clean?

If you can see debris sitting on the rocks and other items in your fish tank, it probably needs cleaning. Other signs include algae building up on the glass, cloudy water, and test results that show high levels of ammonia, nitrate, or nitrite.

What happens to my fish while their tank is being cleaned?

Usually, your fish will remain in the tank. Your fish tank cleaner will clean around them and only replace around ⅓ - ¼ of the water volume during each clean.

How long does a fish tank cleaning service take?

Most average-sized fish tanks can be cleaned in around 30 minutes, although this will depend on the condition of your tank.

How much does a fish tank cleaning service cost?

The average cost of fish tank cleaning is $50-$90 when you book your service through Airtasker. Your costs will depend mainly on the size of your fish tank, the specific cleaning tasks you need done, and how long it’ll take.

What does a fish tank cleaning service include?

Fish tank cleaning varies, depending on the type of aquarium and the level of cleaning required. Here’s what you can expect from the most common fish tank cleaning services:

Water testing

The first step of fish tank cleaning usually involves testing the water. Your cleaner will use a testing kit to check ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH levels. High ammonia, nitrate, and nitrate levels can become deadly for fish, so they’ll aim to keep these to a minimum. The pH should be between 6.5-7.5 for freshwater fish and 8+ for saltwater fish. They’ll also check the water temperature to make sure it’s suitable for your fish species.

Water changing

Most aquariums need their water changed every week to dilute the waste. Before changing the water, your cleaner will use a gravel vacuum to remove waste at the bottom of the tank. They’ll remove about 10-15% of the water volume and replace it with fresh conditioned water, removing debris, nitrate, and phosphate waste. If issues are found from water testing, your cleaner may also make adjustments by using an ammonia remover, conditioner, or filter.

Routine cleaning and maintenance

Aside from testing and changing the water, your cleaner will do a general clean of all surfaces inside the tank. In particular, they’ll clean around ⅓ - ¼ of the gravel per clean to help filter out decaying matter, leftover food, and faeces. They’ll also service your filter, inspect your hardware, and check for potential problems.

Aquarium glass cleaning

An important part of fish tank cleaning is maintaining the glass. Your cleaner will remove algae from the internal glass using a special algae scrubber, working from top to bottom. Once all the algae are removed, your cleaner will siphon it out of the tank with an aquarium vacuum. Finally, they’ll remove any marks and fingerprints from the external glass by wiping it down with a soft, damp cloth.

Fish pond maintenance

Some fish tank cleaners also offer fish pond maintenance services. Most fish ponds will need cleaning every month, depending on the size of the pond, the type of fish, and type of filtration system. Your fish pond cleaner will start by testing the water to see if anything needs balancing. They’ll skim leaves off the surface and remove any sludge from the pond base. Next, they’ll remove about 25% of the water and replace it with fresh, de-chlorinated water, before cleaning the pump and filter.
