In order for the aquatic environment of the aquarium to be as close to natural conditions as possible, and its inhabitants to feel good, it is necessary to use various additional equipment. Almost every aquarium requires aeration. In addition, additional water filtration is often necessary.
Filtration should be done in almost every artificial reservoir (except the Dutch one). This is what an aquarium water pump is for. After all, any aquarium is, first of all, a closed biosystem. As a rule, in the natural environment, the concentration of living organisms and plants is much less than in a domestic artificial reservoir. Therefore, the water in it is polluted to a greater extent and much faster by the waste products of its inhabitants, food residues, etc. This can lead to a high concentration of harmful substances and poor he alth or even illness and death of the fish.
The pump in the aquarium performs the function of pumping water. Otherwise they are called water pumps. In fact, an aquarium pump is the simplest filtration device. More oftenthey work on the principle of a centrifuge and are driven by magnets built into the motor and impeller. Using the pump, you can both pour water into the aquarium and supply it to devices located on its outside (hinged filter, sterilizer, etc.).
Essentially, aquarium pumps produce a stream of water in the aquarium, which helps to move the water layers, which, in turn, leads to saturation of them with oxygen. The water does not stagnate, it is less prone to blooming, and the fish, with a normal degree of oxygen concentration in it, feel much better.
In addition, the aquarium pump can be used to create various aquarium effects, such as fountains and waterfalls. Therefore, it can also be called equipment for decorating an artificial reservoir.
Previously, such devices were sold without additional accessories. Modern pumps can be equipped, for example, with an air compressor. Sometimes they are additionally equipped with a water heater, an ultraviolet lamp, etc. This design, in fact, is already a complete filtering system. The aquarium pump is usually equipped with powerful suction cups that allow you to securely mount the device on the glass. Sometimes special fasteners are used for fastening.
Deep and external pumps are also distinguished by design. Submersible (deep) are located right in the aquarium itself. External (outer) beyond.
Before you purchase a pump for an aquarium, you mustask the seller what material its body is made of. This is of great importance, since such an important parameter as the degree of noise of the device depends on it. Water pumps are available in various capacities to suit different sizes of aquariums.
When purchasing a pump for your home artificial pond, in addition to financial capabilities, be guided by factors such as its power, functionality and noise.
