- One of the most important parts of fishkeeping is also one of the easiest. Just like an air filter cleans the air we breathe, an aquarium filter cleans the water your fish breathe. It also helps keep your aquarium looking pristine. The best aquarium filters process three types of waste:
- Solid waste is any type of dirt, particle, or debris floating in the water like fish waste and uneaten fish food. This type of waste is removed through mechanical filtration.
- Dissolved waste is organic compounds, such as decaying tissue in tap water, and can cause odor and discoloration of the water. This type of waste is removed through chemical filtration.
- Biological waste includes all unwanted contaminants, like ammonia and nitrate, which have to be biologically processed rather than filtered. This type of waste is removed through biological filtration.
