Setting Up an Aquarium Air Pump for Top Health and Beauty

Aquarium air pumps are simple machines which pump air from the room and out a nozzle at the other end. Usually, the nozzle is attached to a long plastic tube that goes into the aquarium.

Filtration Assistance

Some types of fish tank filtration require air pumps in order to function properly. Air pumps are sometimes used with under gravel filters. Another option is to use a power head to provide suction. These filtration systems use rising water to create a suction through a grid under the gravel in the fish tank. Aquarium canister filters also use air pumps to create the pull of water through the filter media. The flow of bubbles from the air pump hose creates a rising column of water that draws impurities upward with it.

Exchange of Gasses

One of the simplest functions of an aquarium air pump is disturbing the surface of the water in the tank. This facilitates the exchange of gasses in the water: oxygen in and carbon dioxide and ammonia out. Essentially, the air pump increases the surface area of the water in the aquarium. A deep bubbling air pump can also leech oxygen into the water through the action of the bubbles.

Decorative Bubble Patterns

Many choose aquarium air pumps for their attractive decorative purposes. There are a wide variety of air stones and attachments to stick on the end of the air pump hose. You can use a coarse air stone to have a sparkling trail of large bubbles from behind a rock in your fish tank. There are also air stones, usually made of pumice rock, with very small holes. These provide very tiny bubbles that rise in a cloud to the surface of the water. There are also bubble wands anywhere from two inches to twenty inches long. Many aquarium enthusiasts enjoy a gentle wall of rising bubbles along the entire back or side of the fish tank.

Moving Aquarium Decorations

There are some aquarium decorations that are designed to attach to the end of the air pump plastic tube. Much more complicated than a simple bubble wand or air stone, these decorations come in various styles such as giant clam shells, deep sea divers, and pirate treasure chests. They move when a part of them fills up with accumulated bubbles from the aquarium air pump and then raises to release the air.

Whether you want to use an aquarium air pump for health reasons, or simply to improve the look of your fish tank, you will not be disapointed. Easy to set up, quiet, and efficient to run, aquarium air pumps are must-have items for fish tank enthusiasts.
