Aquarium and Pond Maintenance in Lafayette, LA and Surrounding Areas

Maintenance for your aquarium will not only keep the appearance of your tank beautiful. This will help your fish stay healthy and live longer. Adding a filtration system to your tank is important. However, this only slows the buildup of harmful chemicals and does not completely eliminate them. Monthly water changes, in addition to chemical and mechanical media changes, are a necessity for maintaining a healthy aquatic environment. We offer maintenance programs custom tailored to your needs. Stop in or call Tropical Fish Bowl today for more information.
Benefits of Water Changes
  • Healthier, Clearer Water: Changing the water in your tank will help remove discoloration and odor.
  • Reintroduction of Essential Minerals: While water filters are a key element of aquariums, they can also filter out the minerals that are good for your coral and invertebrates. Water changes also allow for a proper ratio of salt concentration.
  • Getting Rid of Organic Waste: Water filters cannot always filter out everything, especially larger organic waste materials that can become harmful to your water-life.
  • Lower Nitrogenous Pollutants: High levels of nitrate can make your fish extremely stressed, resulting in poor health, growth, and color development. Nitrate can also stunt the development of your corals and invertebrates.
