Residential and Commercial Aquarium Maintenance

Every system is different, and some will need a visit every week, such as salt water reef tanks with living corals. Other systems, such as larger tanks (90 gallons or more) with community fish or African Cichlids might get by with a visit once per month. Probably the most common maintenance program is 2 visits per month for freshwater and weekly visits for saltwater.
