Chaning Three-in-one Multi-Function Internal Filter
Today, an aquarium dealer asked about the selection and placement of aquarium wave pumps.The pump manufacturer here gives a simple answer.
1. The role of the aquarium wave pump
1. Main functions
The reason for using a wave pump in aquarium fish aquariums is not to make waves. Haha, although aquariums for ornamental fish are not in a still water environment, most ornamental fish do not like strong currents in aquariums. usThe pump manufacturer must first clarify.
Then, the wave pump has only one main function in the fish tank, which is to push the fish excrement and impurities at the bottom of the fish tank into the water of the lower filter fish tank and the upper water of the upper filter fish tank. For its main function, there is no need to place it in some fish tank.
2. Secondary roles
The secondary function of the wave pump is to allow the water temperature in the tank to equilibrate more quickly, especially in large tropical tanks. If only the heating pipe is placed, it may cause the local water temperature of the heating pipe to be too high. The water temperature will not spread quickly, and the presence of the wave pump will quickly equalize the water temperature.
The other is that for some large ornamental fish, the presence of the wave pump in the fish tank can moderately exercise the ornamental fish to make them healthier and have a stronger appetite.
Second, the choice of wave pump is not the bigger the better
1. Usually, there are not many wave pumps in a small one meter long fish tank. Even if we are going to place them, choose a smaller power, say about 6 watts. This is just a metaphor. It depends on the density of the tank, the size of the water flow, and a combination of other equipment.
2. For large aquariums above 1.2 meters, the power of the wave pump is of course better, but we also need to look at which ornamental fish to breed, such as tropical small fish or shallow-water goldfish. Pumps are not for them.
