Daily Maintenance

  Check all your fish for Signs of Stress and Disease. Click here for a list of the common Signs of Stress and Disease. The earlier you spot a sick fish and begin to give that fish special care, the sooner it will recover, and the less likely that disease will spread to other fish.
Is the water cloudy or foamy? Does the water have an unusual odor? If so take immediate action. Click here for more about how to fix cloudy, foamy, or smelly water.
Check the thermometer to be sure the temperature of the water is in the correct temperature range for your fish. Click here for more about thermometers, heaters, and the correct temperature range.
If your fish's home has a filter, check it to be sure that it is clean and the water is flowing at the usual rate. Click here for more information about aquarium filters.
Feed your fish at least twice a day. Don't feed them more than they will eat. Remove all uneaten bits of food after 10-minutes. Be sure all the fish are eating. Loss of Appetite is a Sign of Stress and Disease. If any of your fish do not eat, look at them closely for other Signs of Stress and Disease. Click here for more about Signs of Stress and Disease.

There is more information below about weekly and monthly maintenance.

Summary
The list of maintenance tasks given on this page will prevent stress and disease to
tropictureal fish, goldfish, koi, and all the other inhabitants of freshwater aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds.

This same schedule can be used in aquariums, fish bowls, and fish ponds. Of course you'll have to make some common sense modifications. For example, fish bowls and ponds usually do not have heaters or filters, so you won't need to check those pieces of equipment. But there is a lot in common in maintaining aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds.
