Last week, it was time for me to clean the aquarium tank.
I have a 173 gallon tank in my living space, so I need to keep it as clean as I can.
There is a self-contained ecosystem in my tank that never needs to have food or added salt like other aquariums. There are some soft plus hard corals, tiny fish that feed off the corals, a few hundred snails plus crabs, plus a fantastic amount of sea urchins plus other bottom dwellers to keep my tank clean. However, I still need to disinfect the water filters plus air filters, plus keep the skimmers clean. There’s a lot of humidity that radiates off the tank, although there are lids to keep it contained. There are times when I have to add more water to the tank because there is a lot of evaporation. If I didn’t have a wonderful dehumidifier inside my home, it would be like a tropical rainforest inside the house. I have an absolutely wonderful a/c system that was recently installed, due to my aquarium. I love seeing the tank in the evening, because there are a lot of sea creatures that glow in the dark. It’s constantly alive plus giving me comfort. I don’t suppose it would supply us as much comfort if there wasn’t a top of the line Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system installed in my home. I needed to purchase an energy efficient Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system, and I had to choose wisely. With the dehumidifier running non-stop, along with my heating or air conditioning unit the rest of the time, it can get rather pricey when it comes to my energy bills.
