Aquarium Filtration For Clean Water

Aquarium filtration consists of two main components; mechanical filter media and biological filter media. Some people also use chemical filtration which is optional and could only be used when it is required.

Mechanical filter media ensures that only clean water flows through the biological media. Depending on the size of an aquarium filter; i would highly recommend using three types of mechanical filter media; coarse foam, medium foam and a fine foam.

A good biological filtration will establish healthy bacterial colonies in the tank. Good bacteria is also known as beneficial bacteria and it consumes ammonia, nitrite and nitrate and convert it to something less harmful for the fish.
