Take Away The Cigarette Nicotine Smell From A Fish Tank Aquarium

Clean aquariums keep your fish healthy

Getting cigarette smell out of anything can be challenging. The smell is in the tar residue that is left on surfaces. It sticks to porous and nonporous surfaces. Using products that contain no harsh chemicals, however, you can removed the tar and the smell in a few easy steps.


1. Fill the sink with water and add bleach. The ratio should be 10 to one.

2. Remove everything from the aquarium. This includes gravel, plants, and fish. Store the fish in a small bucket while you are cleaning the tank. Put the plants and other large objects in the sink to soak. Put the gravel in the strainer.

3. Rinse the gravel under hot water for three minutes. Leave out to air dry.

4. Mix one-half cup of vinegar with one-half gallon of water in the second bucket. Pour the mixture into a clean spray bottle.

5. Spray the vinegar solution on the cloth and use it to wipe down the inside and outside surfaces of the aquarium. Be sure to wipe off every sign of discoloring. Rinse with water and wipe with a clean cloth. Air dry the aquarium.

6. Add the gravel, plants, and fish back to the aquarium.
