Benefits of aeration
How proper aeration improves aquarium water quality:
Increases aquarium water movement and circulation.
Promotes proper gas exchange to minimize buildup of carbon dioxide and other potentially harmful gasses.
Raises dissolved oxygen content of aquarium water to create a healthy environment.
Allows efficient biological filtration to take place by nourishing beneficial aerobic bacteria.
Helps maintain stable pH level by preventing acidic carbon dioxide buildup that can take place overnight.
Bubbles beautify your aquarium display, improve water quality, and make your aquarium more hospitable for inhabitants. With an air pump, airline tubing, an air check valve, and a touch of creativity, you can easily create a cascade of bubbles.
Air pumps have many different uses. Once you decide what you need an air pump for, selecting the right pump for your application is easy. This article discusses the different types and uses of air pumps.
