DIY Aquarium Filter

Aquarium filter provides mechanical and biological filtration and it is a crucial component of all type of aquariums. Mechanical filter media cleans the water of any debris such as excessive fish food and fish waste and it ensures that only clean water passes through biological filter media. To establish bacterial colonies in the tank, biological filtration is of utmost important. Bio media is house to both aerobic and an-aerobic bacteria which converts ammonia to nitrite and nitrite to nitrates.

I take this as an opportunity and would like to share my own projects on building aquarium filters at home.
