What happens if you don’t change fish tank filter?
Importance of Proper Filtration
Ensuring adequate filtration in your aquarium is the key to maintaining a healthy and thriving tank environment for your fish. If your tank filter is not working properly, toxins could build-up in your tank and it could eventually poison your fish.
Should I change my filter without doing a water change aquarium?
Water changes, siphoning gravel, changing filters, and other tank maintenance activities are all important, but they are not meant to be done all at the same time (unless the tank’s condition is unsalvageable).
Why did my fish tank get dirty so fast?
If your tank is too small, the fish will be stressed and the tank will get dirty much faster. Your tank should not be overly large, however, or the fish will be uncomfortable and it will be much more space to keep clean.
