Tank cleaning ?

I just wanted to know how often and what you do for cleaning the tank. Trying to find out if you have to take the tank all the way down.
Wellp I take that as no body cleans the tanks out. That's good enough for me.
Mine never really need cleaning, I only wipe the front glass with a lemon every now and then.

I only 'clean' when I need to see something being obstructed my junk on glass.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

Thanks for the info!
There are some tanks - mainly grow-outs, temp tanks, that I totally break down to the glass and "start over" each Spring when the weather is nice and I can use the garden hose outside.

What's with all the lemon juice stuff ?

Razor blade, fresh.....it's the only way to fly / clean the front pane for better viewing. I never touch the sides. Only the front.

It helps to dissolve water spots, which can mostly be prevented by misting with RO or distilled water.
I do a total breakdown of my treefrog tanks every weekend. During the week I change out their paper towel substrate and wipe down the glass every day.

The dart frogs only get the front glass wiped down once a week, mainly so I can see them better.

The acids also help prevent (short time) and slows algae/green slim growth on the glass. White vinegar works well also.
Later and Happy Frogging,
