Fish - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


A clogged intake or impeller will still try to suck in water, but will only make noise and actually do nothing, where as a filter with a clogged motor won't turn on at all. The solution to a clogged motor is fairly simple. Just open up the filter, take it apart piece by piece, and unclog it. If you need to, you can use your hands, use lightly compressed air, or if the motor itself is water proof, just blast some water through the motor.

One of the most common problems that people experience with their fish tank filters is that there is a loss of suction, or no suction at all. You see, fish tank filters use something called an impeller that is motor operate. This impeller serves to suck water from your fish tank into the intake tube, through the filter media, and back out the other side in the form of perfectly clean water.

Another pretty serious problem that many people experience with their fish tank filters is that there is an improper flow rate. Now, this is not actually a problem with the filter itself, but it does affect your fish. You see, different fish need different water flow rates, with some liking a heavy flow to swim against and some which can't handle fast flowing water and just get swept around the tank.

Whatever the case may be and whatever the solution to your fish tank filter problem is, you need to take care of it as soon as possible. Without proper filtration your water will suffer from a buildup of waste, chemicals, and toxins, plus it won't be properly oxygenated either, all things which can rather quickly lead to the unfortunate demise of your fish.

While buying the Arapaima Arowama Fish or any other aquarium fishes, check, if you are buying health fishes. Secondly, you need to check, the extent of care that the fish demands.

Aquarium air pump allows for better humidification in conjunction with perlite, and lava rocks. It also provides automatic aeration pushing the C02 up and out the FAE holes in the PMP lid, so there is no need for misting or fanning.

I think, a sponge filter is for you - simple, cheap and effective.
It provides mechanical and biological filtration, once the sponge has grown bacterial colonies. Filters come in a variety of sizes shapes, and pore sizes to adapt them to an almost filtration need. Sponges give excellent results in ponds, saltwater, and freshwater. They can be used as an addition to another filter, such as a canister filter, or as the only source of aquarium filtration - https://great-filter.com/best-sponge-filter/

If it connected to a public water course, yes you do.

If it is totally on your land and spring fed, no you don't, as it is fully yours and on private property.

Best thing to do is phone your local Department of Natural Resources.

In my opinion, power filters are the best. They are easy to maintain and are also quite economical. The most common style of power filter hangs on the back of your tank. A siphon will pull water from the tank, eliminating any bacteria and returning filtered water back into the aquarium.
