JBL Cristal Profi e1902 Review For a while now I have been planning a filter upgrade. My main tank has been running on a Fluval FX5 for some time and it's getting on a bit now. The FX5 has done a great job, but its certainly time to modernise the filtration a little. The natural choice would have been to get a new FX6, but I wanted to move away from these filters for a couple of reasons:
Aquarium filter setup Filter setup can seem relatively straight forward, with many filters arriving with pre-installed media. You may also think that as long as each type of media is somewhere in the filter, it will do its job. You would be right. But there are ways to make it far more effective.

Aquarium air pumps - There is a common misconception that this air is adding oxygen to the water, it is, but not as it's flowing upwards. Gas exchange takes place at the surface of the water, so as the bubbles hit the surface and pop, it creates surface agitation. This adds oxygen to the water, and that is great for your fish. Oxygen in the aquarium is vital, despite living underwater, fish need oxygen.

Ammonia Spike - There are many reasons why an ammonia spike can occur in your aquarium. One of the most common is that the tank is new and has not been cycled (If you have a newly setup aquarium and arent sure about cycling, give our short book a try, FREE on kindle). Whatever the reason for the ammonia spike, it needs to be dealt with quickly. Ammonia is highly toxic, so it won't be long until you find you have very ill or dead fish.
