Filters

Choosing the best filtration for your aquarium

First and foremost, a quality filter ensures clean water and promotes fish health. In conjunction with regular partial water changes, filters help keep the ecosystem in balance. Filters also help generate flow, absorb substances that causes turbidity, and enrich the water with oxygen.The filters clean the water by using mechanical and biological filtration. Mechanical filtration removes suspended matter and coarse dirt particles, such as feed residues, plant parts, and animal waste. Biological filtration converts or removes bacteria as microorganisms settled in the filter feed on organic matter. The beneficial bacteria that settles within the filter media help to break down and remove waste from aquarium inhabitants. Filters can additionally use chemical filtration. Chemical filtration removes dissolved particles, toxins and odors from the aquarium and helps to maintain water quality.


Internal Filters

An internal filter is placed inside the aquarium and is particularly suited for aquariums up to 30 gallons, if space is not available externally, or as a secondary filter. One advantage of internal filters is that they require no additional tubing or connections to disrupt the overall appearance of the aquarium.
