Our team has the experience and knowledge to answer your questions regarding fish tank maintenance and help you select the best items to make the job a breeze.
Anybody can keep a tidy and healthy fish tank. It's not a difficult job, but it does call for regular focus and the best materials. There are daily and weekly tasks in addition to the crucial job of tank cleaning with partial water adjustments.
Every day, after you feed your fish, remove uneaten food after about 5 minutes. Also, examine your fish to ensure they are healthy and are acting normally. Lastly, it's important to check the water temperature. Every week, check the pH, nitrite, nitrate, and ammonia levels. If it's a saltwater tank, check the salinity. Also, check out equipment such as lights and filters to see that everything is working correctly.
How often should you clean the tank? How much of the water do you need to replace? It depends on the dimension of the tank, the number of fish, and whether it's saltwater. Typically, you need to swap out 10-20% of the water every one to three weeks.
Follow these steps in your regular cleaning:
Prepare replacement water. If you use tap water, use a water filter to get rid of toxic substances. For saltwater, you'll need special reverse osmosis/deionized water.
Unplug electrical components & remove large accessories.
Siphon water into a container. Siphon along the gravel to remove the waste that builds up there. If you properly control the flow with your thumb or a built-in regulator, waste will be sucked out and gravel will fall back into the tank.
Remove algae. Use an algae-cleaning tool to help.
Clean your filter. For filters such as a sponge, ceramic rings, and fiber, rinse them in the water you removed and quickly reinstall} them to avoid losing crucial microorganisms. Filters that contain carbon and various other absorbers will need to be regularly replaced.
Add the replacement water.
Clean your tank's exterior with an appropriate cleaner and towel.

Staff is always super friendly and helpful and the the store is always clean and we'll stocked.
The staff at One Stop are all very knowledgeable and friendly. I feel it's very important to support One Stop because they not only carry the highest quality products but they donate very large quantities of high quality products to Monadnock Humane society(our local shelter). The prices are great but I'd pay more there simply to assist w/their involvement in our community. Local businesses supporting other local businesses deserve our support. I really feel it's our duty to help when we are able. One Stop sets the best example for local businesses. Amazing service, friendly staff, knowledgeable in every aspect. There is nothing that could improve them as they are already at the very top!!
Helpful staff and plenty of supplies
One Stop should be the go to place for all your pet supply needs, from the vast variety of high quality foods, toys, equipment and accessory items. If they don't have it, you probably don't need it. The staff is always helpful with there product knowledge and service. I have always found the store neat and clean with a pleasant atmosphere. And the pricing is always on point too, even compared to the online retailers like Chewy's or Amazon. I really enjoy supporting this local business, my cat does too . . .
We have been One Stop customers for some time now. The Brattleboro store was our "home base," but on occasion we stop by the Keene store. This past weekend, we stopped to see what was new as we have not been to the Keene store since COVID hit. There were some familiar faces and some new ones as well. The store (despite the shortages that have been plaguing many pet supplies) was surprisingly well stocked and extremely well organized. We also found out that one of the most knowledgeable and helpful members of the Brattleboro team is now the manager in Keene! Looking through past reviews, there are several negative reviews of this store; that has not ever been our experience, but we are happy to see the new management making positive changes! Of our zoo worth of animals, Fish seem to be the most difficult to get and the fish room at Keene has always been very well stocked and we have made many purchases in Keene. We look forward to many more positive experiences with One Stop and are definitely excited to see how the new management continues to improve an already great store!
