If you are setting up an aquarium or any type of fish tank, then you’ll need a fish tank pump and filter system. A fish tank filter cleans the water of any debris and help remove the build-up of ammonia and nitrates which can be toxic to your fish. A fish tank filter and pump also aerate the water so your fish can breathe, and because the water is being kept healthy and clean that means you will not need to clean your fish tank as much.
There are different filters available, with fish tank setups having them included internally in the tank. Then there are chemical, mechanical, and even biological fish tank filters available. Mechanical filtration makes the water of your fish tank clearer as it physically strains out debris from the water. Biological filtration uses beneficial bacteria or aquarium plants that can consume the toxic ammonia and nitrogen compounds that result from your fish’s waste, and chemical filtration is best saved if you need to remove any impurities from the water.
The fish tank filter and fish tank pump that you choose can be down to personal preference, but some fish might need a special type of fish tank filter or fish tank pump. Our staff can help you decide the best fish tank pump and filter system to suit yours and your fishes’ needs.
