Aquarium Air Pumps & Aeration

The Essential Rolls of Aquarium Air Pumps

Aquarium Air Pumps have two essential rolls in promoting the well being and longevity of the inhabitants of your aquarium. When combined with undergravel filters, they will assist in removing chemicals and toxins from the tank, making the water suitable for life. Air pumps circulate water through undergravel filters and aid the filters in providing biological filtration, chemical filtration and mechanical filtration. For the health of the tank it is important that all three of these types of filtration be done.

Aquarium air pumps may also be used to circulate the water in the aquarium to help oxygen to be absorbed into the water at the surface. With good circulation, the water in the fish tank will have more oxygen and this will help to promote good health of the fish living inside the tank. So whether or not you are using an undergravel filter, an air pump can be a valuable accessory for helping to make a healthy tropical home aquarium.
