How do I set up rio.600 submersible pump


That would depend on what you want to set it up to do. For basic use, you attach an output hose or plumbing set up, perhaps a combination of flexible hose and rigid pvc, and put the output where you want the water to go. Then put the pump into water that is deep enough to keep it submerged while operating and plug it in. You may need to hold the output above the water surface where the pump is moving water to. This will allow any air in the plumbing to be pushed out - sometimes air trapped in the plumbing can prevent the water from going through the system.
If you are putting this pump into a sump - a body of water below the main aquarium, you need to be sure the pump is strong enough to pump water to the height you want it to go. The higher the water needs to go, the stronger the pump needs to be.

When do I need an aquarium chiller?


You'll need a chiller when the ambient room temperature is higher than the desired temperature of your aquarium. This can happen due to many reasons such as:

1) If you live in a warm part of the world and decreasing the room temperature is not good enough.

2) If you wish to keep cold water species in your aquarium.

3) If you have installed heat emitting equipment that increases the water temperature such as light, pumps etc.

What is the difference between a filter and a pump in a fish tank?


A filter maintains a natural environment that for fish thatbalances the good and bad bacteria in the tank. Additionally, a filter can remove toxins, chemicals and other unwantedmaterials from the water. The filterworks by taking water in from the tank and returning it clean.A pump is just a pump. It pumps air into the tank and creates bubbles, and sometimes a current. It does not clean the tank or balance thebacteria and PH like a filter does.
