TODAY IS CLEAN YOUR AQUARIUM DAY
They’re a source of simple, peaceful joy. The bubble of the aerator, the hiss of the pump for the filter, the gentle dance of the fish around the habitat you’ve created for them, and the slow zen-like movement of your algae snail across the stones at the bottom of your tank. Within this one small container is a microcosm of the ocean at large, whether you’ve adorned it with sunken castles with hidden gold (fish) within, cracked skulls, or a lush sub-aquatic garden, Clean Your Aquarium Day reminds you that occasionally your tank is going to need a scrub.
