The best thing for an aquarium is an excellent filter system. Also, change your filter weekly for best results. AND, a water conditioning system and weekly water changes with sponge cleaning off the glass is also helpful for keeping your fish tank sparkly.

When I had fish I always made sure to change the filter very regularly and use a water conditioner. I also had one of those gravel vacuum things, it wasn't battery powered it just worked by suction. That cleaned all the gunk out of the gravel really well. There was always stuff left floating in the water, but I usually changed the filter every time I cleaned the tank to keep it clean. Algae eaters help too, especially if you have goldfish, I know my goldfish were VERY filthy!
