Maintenance is necessary part of good aquarium keeping. Routine water changes and pulling debris from gravel helps to maintain a natural balance in the aquarium environment. Aqueon Siphon Vacuum Gravel Cleaner can help to make this job easier and take less time.
- Place empty bucket within reach and at a level below the aquarium
- Attach hose clip to bucket with hose end inserted. For best results keep hose end and bucket as low as possible below the aquarium.
- Completely submerge intake tube in aquarium
- Squeeze priming bulb pump 4 to 6 times, until siphon begins.
- Water will begin to flow into bucket
Gravel Cleaning Recommendation
- Begin to move the intake tube in an up and down motion, in and out of the gravel.
- Gravel and debris will be pulled into the intake tube.
- Allow debris to separate from gravel and pull away with water in the hose.
Note: Aqueon Siphon Vacuum Gravel Cleaners are ideal for routine water changes. By removing and replacing 25% of your aquarium water every three to four weeks, greatly reduces the amount of nitrate, phosphate and debris that can build up.
It is not recommended to completely drain an active aquarium. This greatly reduces the amount of beneficial microscopic bacteria that helps keep your aquarium balanced.
It depends on the type of fish you have!
Discus, wild caught angelfish, uaru and certain other fish that are found at or near the equator do better at temperatures between 84° and 88° F.
Betta fish thrive best in water temperatures between 76° and 85° F.
Most tropical fish prefer temperatures ranging from 76° to 80° F.
Goldfish, koi and other coldwater fish prefer the temperatures be between 65° and 72° F.
No, simply seeing condensation inside your Aqueon Glass Adjustable Heater does not that it is broken or defective.
Check that the heater is working properly by using a thermometer with your fish tank. (also make sure that the water is the right temperature for the type of fish that you have inside your fish tank)
The reason you may see condensation is because humidity was in the air and trapped inside the tube when it was manufactured and sealed. Your heater is still able to perform properly with this condensation.
