"When the water gets seemingly unclear.

Occasionally, when plants, rocks, or decorations become visibly dirty, you will want to clean them. Remove these items from the tank and scrub them under running water or leave them to soak in water overnight. After they are clean you may carefully replace them in the fish tank"

"A tropical fish tank should be cleaned if debris at least once a week, but a full water change every 6-12 months as if this is done to often it will kill the natural bacteria in the water which the fish need to survive. Always use water stabilisers to keep the PH of the water correct."
