Aquarium & Fish Tank Cleaning Services

Do you have the time to sustain a healthy fish tank? Most companies don’t.

A large fish tank needs routine aquarium maintenance, cleaning, and fish health checks for a pristine ecosystem. We provide straightforward fish tank cleaning services so you and your team can enjoy a fish tank, without the hassle.

Serenity USA is the industry leader in aquarium cleaning services. We deep-clean fish tanks and perform in-depth aquarium maintenance. Our clients get the highest quality aquarium without sacrificing valuable time and energy to maintain it. Sounds pretty nice, right?

It takes our service technicians about 1 to 2 hours on each visit to make your aquarium look and run like new!

Our Fish Tank Cleaning Services

To keep your fish healthy and your view clear, we conduct extensive fish tank cleaning inside and out. We use a magnetic scrubber to scrape algae off the inside of the glass. We’ll also clean the outside of the glass for optimal viewing.

We give you an extra magnetic scrubber so you can wipe away algae in your tank before it gets too thick. We recommend doing this every couple of days for the best viewing experience. You may use a non-scratch cleaning tool on the outside to remove fingerprints or dust. A microfiber cloth works best.

Be mindful of where you want to place the aquarium. Excessive sunlight means more algae growth and increased water temperature. We check your tank for high water temperatures as this is harmful to the fish. If you have any questions about the best place for your aquarium, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Gravel Cleaning

Your service tech will vacuum the gravel to remove food, waste, and other harmful debris. Gravel in a fish tank is much more than decoration. Its primary goal as a substrate is to break down the bacteria that make your fish sick. Without it, we’d have to change the water much more often and that may not be enough to keep your fish healthy.

We’ll check the gravel level and refill to the necessary depth if need be. We like to keep gravel depth between 1 and 2 inches. This makes it deep enough to anchor plants and shallow enough for effective cleaning. Also, during each fish tank cleaning service, we replace your plants with fresh ones.

Draining and Refilling the Fish Tank

Using a hose, we drain and refill your fish tank, instead of taking multiple trips to dump out the water. The hose hooks up to the aquarium from a faucet and uses changing water pressure to drain or fill the tank. You’ll need a faucet within 100ft of your fish tank for us to perform an efficient and safe service.

To avoid drastic changes in water chemistry, we only drain 25% to 50% of it, depending on the condition of the water. Your technician will determine the proper percentage. We then add a de-chlorinator, which removes fish-harming chlorine.

Aquarium Maintenance

Fish tank cleaning is only one step in the process. Ensuring your aquarium lasts a lifetime takes regular maintenance.

Our service techs start by inspecting a few areas of the aquarium. We check airflow in the bubble wand, UV lights, heater, pumps, and more. If we detect any issues, we’ll replace those parts at no charge to you.

We’ll check the woodwork of your stand for stability and damage. Your service tech will also dust off the stand and canopy of your unit, as a courtesy.

Cleaning and Maintaining the Seamless Sump®

On each visit, your service tech will drain, clean, and rotate the sump components. Next, they’ll replace the filter sock and Purigen in their freshly cleaned tubs. In other words, your filtration system will work like new after each aquarium service.

Our patented Seamless Sump® is a revolutionary product in the aquarium industry. It provides unmatched filtration, versatility, storage, and more. Visit our sister company, Custom Aquariums, to see how this product, and many others, can improve the life of your fish tank.

You may not have a Seamless Sump® installed in your unit, but that’s okay. Our technicians are trained in many areas of aquarium maintenance. This allows us to service several types of existing aquariums.

Refilling Food and Monitoring Fish’s Health

With our patented Unstoppable Hopper® Auto Feeder, you won’t have to feed the fish. Your service representative will set the ideal times for it to drop food in the tank. We provide more than enough food to last until our next visit, then we’ll replenish it for you.

Everything we do on aquarium service visits is for the health of your fish. They bring joy to the people around them and we do all we can to return the favor. Unfortunately, there are times when fish become aggressive, ill, or die. If these occur, we replace them with an appropriate species for your tank.

Fish Tank Cleaning Service Plans

We offer comprehensive service packages for fish tank cleaning. These plans have the same maintenance activities (explained above) but differ in service frequency. We give you more than enough supplies to last between visits, regardless of the one you choose.

If you have questions about our fish tank cleaning service and maintenance packages, please give us a call. Our dedicated customer support team will be happy to help!


How often should our fish tank be cleaned?

Most fish tanks need to be cleaned every 2 to 3 weeks. Thanks to our patented products, we can provide services at least every 6-8 weeks. This may vary depending on the environmental factors of your aquarium. For example, direct sunlight accelerates algae growth, which requires more frequent cleaning.

How much does it cost to have a fish tank cleaned?

The price to have a fish tank cleaned will vary depending on its size and other factors. We charge a low monthly fee that covers fish, regular cleaning, and equipment updates and replacement. Because our proprietary products allow for a longer service interval, we can reduce the number of required visits by more than half, saving you money.

How long does a fish tank service take?

A typical fish tank service takes around 1 to 2 hours. Time will vary based on the size of the aquarium and the complexity of the aquascape. Our initial service visit for an already existing aquarium often takes longer than the typical cleaning service.
