Clear water doesn't just look good, it's one sign your fish live in a healthy environment.

A self clean fish tank or self cleaning aquarium system can be used to house a variety of tropical fish and crustaceans including; freshwater fish, saltwater fish, and even betta fish. However, for a self cleaning betta fish tank we recommend a minimum size of 2.5 gallons as the smallest size since betta’s do need space despite what you read on other websites. Make sure to keep in mind the location of your tank. A power source is going to be needed, and a water source close by will make things easier. Always put your aquarium on a sturdy surface, especially in high traffic areas. So if you’re looking for an easy clean fish tank the list below should give you recommendations and options of multiple sizes and shapes to meet your home or office needs.

To clean a freshwater fish tank, when we say cleaning, we probably mean maintaining.

Every tank is going to be a little bit different, but the cleaning methods are pretty much the same. The goal of cleaning an aquarium is to get a lot of the waste out of the water with minimal shock to the environment. Remember, there is bacteria that's growing in the filter, on the sand bed, and even on the glass and decorations in the aquarium. You want to minimize the shock to this bacteria because this bacteria is what's responsible for keeping your water safe for your fish. It's constantly growing and breaking down waste. It's breaking down ammonia and nitrite and keeping that water really, really clean and safe for the fish.When you're sure the tank and accessories are clean and well-rinsed to remove all traces of vinegar and bleach, assemble the freshwater aquarium.

All the hard work is behind you! Now it is time to reintegrate your betta fish into his fresh clean tank. As you can see there is a fair amount of sediment or debris in the container I put 'Red Fishy' in while I cleaned his tank. You can easily avoid pouring that back into the freshly cleaned fish tank. Simply tip the container over slightly and try to get your betta to 'go with the flow' so to speak. A betta will generally swim along with the flow of the water. This will allow all the sediment at the bottom to stay there. Once your betta has made the dive from the small container to the fish tank, stop pouring the water to ensure the sediment does not transfer.
