1. A day before you plan on cleaning your tank, fill up a bowl or other container with enough water to replace the water in your betta fish tank. You are doing this to make sure that the water is room temperature before adding it to your tank. (They usually like a range of 72 – 82 degrees, so if you currently have a small heater in the tank, I suggest you try to get the water at the same temperature as is currently in the tank).



2. The day after, when you are ready to clean your tank, start by treating the new water with . (Make sure you follow the instructions on the bottle!).

3. At this point, I normally check to see if the levels are ok. Anywhere between 6.5 and 7.5 is ok, but 7 is ideal.

4. Pour about 1/3 of the water from your betta fish tank into a 2nd container and move your betta fish to that container.

5. Empty the betta tank and rinse everything off (substrate, decorations, etc.) under running water, then put everything back into the tank.

Note – Some people wash their betta tank with soap, but I normally try to avoid that if possible. You can’t guarantee that you will get 100% of the soap off and soap may harm your little guys. Instead, just try scrubbing your tank with a regular aquarium brush to get most of the dirt off.

6. Once everything is back in, fill up the tank with the new conditioned water, wait until the dust settles a bit and then move your betta fish back to their home. That’s it!
