What type of carers are available for my Fish?

It depends on your set up, quantity and what service you need. For example if you own 1 fish, and their bowl or tank is very portable, you might have your fish stay at a Fish Sitter’s home.

If you own a large tank, and own multiple Fish, or large Fish, you might book a Sitter that offers Home Visits once daily or twice daily.

If you are away for longer than a few days, a House Sitter to come and stay in your home in a guest room could be the best solution.

Can Fish be left alone for a week?

Depending on the type of fish, how many fish you own and the size of the tank, you might be able to leave your pet fish alone for 2 to 7 days.

Two days prior to leaving you will need to do a partial water change, vacuum the substrate with an aquarium syphon, and clean the filter if needed. This way, you have time afterwards to observe the fish and make sure everything's working well before you leave.

If you are heading away, and don’t have time for this, book help with your Fish Tank Clean through PetCloud to come in to clean, change the water and feed your fish with your instructions.

All equipment such as Gravel Cleaners, Magnetic Cleaners, Scrapers, Brushes, Pads, Silicone and Cleaning Kits must be provided by the Pet Owner.

How often should you clean a fish tank?

It depends on how many fish you have, and how messy they are - most tanks require cleaning approximately every 2 weeks.

Cleaning involves:

  • Syphoning the gravel to remove debris or uneaten food.
  • Changing about 10-15% of the water.
  • Check the filter is functioning correctly.
  • Wiping the glass to remove algae
  • Check the filter is working correctly.
  • The filter sponges can be rinsed in water taken from the aquarium to clean them.

If your aquarium is smelly, or you have an algae problem, then clean your aquarium more frequently. However, these signs do indicate a problem that needs to be addressed. Get into the habit of testing your water quality every time you clean out the aquarium to make sure everything is OK.
