Your week life too hectic to perform aquarium maintenance on your setup? If that’s the case, it doesn’t really give you an excuse not to do it. Try doing things on the weekends instead. As much fun as water changes and filter cleaning can be, it’s just not always that easy to get it done during the routine Monday through Friday hustle and bustle. This is especially difficult if you have kids, regardless of their age. So, put off those aquarium responsibilities until the weekend, that way you’ll actually have time to do them. And if the evening time is too hectic, then perform your maintenance in the morning, while everyone else is still asleep. Regardless of when you do it, just do it. Your tank will thank you in the long run.
