Freshwater Aquarium Filters

Biological and mechanical filtration is necessary to give aquatic life a healthy environment. The water also needs to be aerated which is something an aquarium filter can help you with. Power filters or a UGF are going to be enough for small to medium aquariums but for large aquariums canister filters will be required. An aquarium filter runs all the water in the tank through the filtration process.

For freshwater aquarium fish and aquatic life to survive, an appropriate freshwater aquarium filter is going to be needed for removal of physical and soluble chemical waste products. All fish come from natural environments in which waste matter doesn't accumulate for decay to cause toxic ammonia levels but in a small volume of water placed inside a closed container this level of toxicity can be harmful. Aquarium filters will help with both maintenance and with helping your fish survive.
