A healthy aquarium means healthy and happy fish. Pet Supply Port in Saukville, WI has all the tools and the devices to keep that tank in great shape. Our staff has the experience and expertise to answer your questions about fish tank upkeep and help you select the best products to make the task a breeze.
Anyone can keep a clean and healthy aquarium. It's not a tough task, but it does require routine focus and the right supplies. There are daily and weekly jobs along with the crucial job of tank cleaning with partial water modifications.
Everyday, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about five minutes. Also, examine your fish to ensure they are healthy and are acting normally. Lastly, it's important to check the water temperature. Each week, check the pH, nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia levels. If it's a saltwater tank, check the salinity. Also, check out equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is functioning properly.
How often should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to replace? It depends on the size of the tank, the number of fish, and whether it's saltwater. Normally, you need to swap out 10-20% of the water every one to three weeks.
Follow these steps in your routine cleaning:
Prepare replacement water. If you use tap water, use a water filter to eliminate toxins. For saltwater, you'll need special reverse osmosis/deionized water.
Unplug electrical components & remove large accessories.
Siphon water into a container. Siphon along the gravel to remove the waste that accumulates there. If you correctly control the flow with your thumb or a built-in regulator, waste will be sucked out and gravel will fall back into the tank.
Remove algae. Use an algae-cleaning tool to help.
Clean your filter. For filters such as a sponge, ceramic rings, and fiber, rinse them in the water you removed and quickly reinstall} them to prevent losing important microorganisms. Filters that contain carbon and other absorbers will need to be frequently replaced.
Add the replacement water.
Clean your tank's exterior with an appropriate cleaner and cloth.

I finally found this wonderful pet store! I'm so happy I found it. My pup is a finicky eater and this store is like the Outpost for pets. I've found so many wonderful, nontraditional things that he loves at this store.
Because Buddy is allergic to chicken, I can't feed him most dog foods. I have spent hours in pet stores struggling to read the tiny print on the food bags. I have a visual challenge that makes it hard to see the print on most bags and have left many stores extremely frustrated.
Every time I shop here, I get so much friendly help, I never reach that frustration point. It's refreshing to do where the staff knows the products and wants to help you find what you need. I feel like my money matters every time I enter the store. I feel like I'm an important part of their business.
I've never been to a pet store, where the owner researches every product she sells. That shows me that she cares about my pet just as much as she does her own. I've been shopping at Pet Supply Port since they were in Port. The entire staff are educated about what will work best for your pet, and if you take your baby in they will definitely get some love. Try it. You'll love it. 😁😁
