    How do you replace aquarium filters?

    A:

    To replace an external power aquarium filter, first open the filter cover to access the carbon cartridge. Slide the cartridge out of the filter and dispose of it, and fit a new cartridge into place. An undergravel filter typically does not need replacement; for this type of filter, regularly clean the tank gravel and change 10 to 15 percent of the tank water once a week for optimal filtration.

    How do you care for aquarium catfish?

    A:

    To care for aquarium catfish, hobbyists should provide them with adequate edible materials and line the bottom of the tank with soft substrates and hiding places. By treating sickly catfish and cleaning the aquarium, individuals prevent the spread of infections. Hobbyists should avoid stirring up their aquariums excessively while cleaning to avoid contaminating the water column with decaying matter, which may spawn bacterial infections in the fish.
