Filters are a critical part of keeping an aquarium clean. Because you need to change them out when they are dirty, it is helpful to find ways to save money on them. This is a guide about saving money on aquarium filters.
I have had aquariums for years. The best way that I have found to make my filters last longer is to take them out and wash them once a week. I use my sink sprayer and wash both sides of the filter. This keeps food residue from piling up on the filter as well as extending the life of the filter.
