tank cleaning

How often do you clean your tank?


I clean my outer/inner front glass every other day. I clean my back glass and equipment monthly.

LOL are you talking during a cyano outbreak like I am just clearing up from now. Every other day something is coming off to scrub the cyano from or a spot is being syphoned up.

Normally, I would clean glass every couple of days with the magnet scrubber.

I'll take my equipment off and scrub with paper towels and warm water about every second water change.
