Our fish tank maintenance service in Cheshire, today servicing a phone box fish tank!
This client initially contacted us to see it we could provide our fish tank maintenance service in Cheshire. They had requested that it was urgency as they thought their filter was not working. We have many clients in Cheshire and so were able to act quickly to arrange an appointment to service this aquarium.
Upon arrival we diagnosed that the filter was still operating but it was quite badly clogged up with tank detritus, and thus it’s water flow was very reduced. After a filter clean and water change there was an instant visual improvement in the fish as they were a lot more active.
Maintaining a clean filter is very important for the health of your fish as the filter is mainly responsible for processing the fish’s waste products.
If your filter becomes clogged with a build up of fish waste it not only looses water flow and cannot process enough water. But also the filter media within it looses its surface area which bacteria live on. These bacteria’s are vital in processing fish waste products.
When cleaning your filter, never use tap water to clean your filter media’s. Chlorine in tap water will kill these bacteria so always use tank water to clean your media. Additionally, if your filter has a pump, you should clean out the pumps impeller assembly as these often become dirty and this results in a loss of flow.
Our fish tank maintenance service in Cheshire is available to both residential and commercial clients. We have the expertise to maintain cold water, tropical or marine aquariums of any size.
