Best Answer

when you clean a fish tank you should only do a 5 or 10% water change. You should wipe any algae off the glass, filter of objects in the tank using a new cloth as any soaps that get in the water will kill the fish. After this the water may be cloudy but the filter should clear this within a few hours. You should never do a 100% water change as this much change will overwhelm the fish and could kill them.

Do you need a water pump to use a water tank?

No but you will need a filter and a air pump to circulate and oxygenate the tank. Gravel is optional but I prefer not to use it because it traps the feces and access food. You will also need a syphon, and a scrubber to clean the tank. You should clean the tank about once every few weeks or when it gets cloudy. When you clean your tank you will probably notice that the water is still a little cloudy but it's ok because you won't be able to get the tank completely clean.

When you change the fuel pump do you change the gas tank also?

No but make sure the gas tank is clean and free from debris, if there is dirt or debris then clean the tank with fresh gas or you can use diesel fuel either way make sure its clean.
