A regular Maintenance schedule is key to maintaining a successful aquarium.  Most all specimens kept in the aquarium are from much larger bodies of water, and fluctuations  in the physical environment are controlled by Mother Nature. Things are much different in the aquarium, where there is limited water, and toxic chemicals are produced in higher concentrations.  However, with a regular maintenance schedule as an ongoing part of keeping the aquarium, the natural environment can be more closely imitated.

Not all aquariums are maintained the same way.  It's best to read up on what type of aquarium specimens you are keeping before you decide on a maintenance schedule.  Some tanks need to be cleaned more often, some less.  Some filters need to be changed more often, others never.  To have a successful aquarium, proper maintenance is very important to keep your specimen's vitality and health.  A strict maintenance schedule is often neglected by aquarium owners, and leaving this out is the quickest way for your tank to depreciate and potentially "crash".  Below is a link to more in depth information on taking care of an aquarium, and common tasks performed.
