Maintaining your AquaMode 300 Aquarium
Its really easy to keep your Aqua One Aquamode 300 in tip top condition. Clean the glass once per week with a suitable Aqua One Algae Scrub pad and carry out some basic water tests such as pH, Nitrite and Ammonia. Change 25% of the aquarium water every three to four weeks remembering to treat tapwater with Aqua One Health Plus Water conditioner. Use a Gravel Cleaner to extract waste from the aquarium substrate and clean the filter or filter pump at the same time.
Spares & Accessories
Its smart to keep a few spares around in case of failure so always have a spare Aqua One heater and pump impeller around as a minimum. We start each week with emergency phone calls from customers who's filter or heater stopped working without warning on Sunday evening.....Avoid the stress and panic by planning ahead: you'll be glad you did. If you are planning a revamp do cheack out our decor and ornament department, we have one of the largest selections on the internet.
The PL11 energy saving lighting tube fitted the the Aquamode 300 gives of its best over around six months. After this output falls off quickly so do fit a new one twice per year - we stock every PL11 lamp made by Aqua One. The filter pump impeller turns milions of revolutions every day and wear is inevitable so fit a new one every year to ensure filter performance in the long term. Never wash filter media out under the tap as essential filter bacteria will be killed, use a little aquarium water which can then be disgarded and,of course always condition tapwater with Aqua One Health Plus before use.
