Fish Tank Pump - the Heart of the Tank
Keith Londrie

If you have a fish tank, then a fish tank pump is also a
necessity. Finding the fish tank pump that is right for you can
be difficult, if you are not familiar with the industry. In most
cases, when you buy a fish tank, you will also be given a fish
tank pump. This makes things much easier, as you are ensured that
everything will be compatible, and that you are setting
everything up correctly. But if you are in the market for a new
fish tank pump, or your aquarium did not come with one, you
should seek out the advice of a professional. Professionals are
at many of the popular pet stores and their knowledge is

A fish tank pump is what gets air to your fish. Without a pump,
there would be no air flow in your tank, making it uninhabitable
for your fish. As you can see, a fish tank pump can be considered
the life blood of your tank. If your pump stops working for any
reason, you need to have it replaced as soon as possible. It is
often good to have an extra fish tank pump on hand in case of
emergencies. This way, if something happens, you will be able to
swap them out quickly, keeping your fish in healthy, oxygenated
water. Fish breath the air through the water and if your pump
fails, the fish will not have any air to live on.

Finding a fish tank pump that works with your tank can be done by
visiting your local pet store. They should have many options in
stock, and will be able to provide you with a pump that will fit
your current set up. Be sure to know the specifications of your
tank, so that the pet store employee can point you in the right
direction. Most fish tank air pumps are universal, but to make
sure it fits it always helps to have as much information on hand
as possible. Information such as the dimensions and capacity in
gallons are needed in order to fit the pump to your fish tank.

Buying the right fish tank pump is very important. Without a
pump, your fish would not be able to get the oxygen that they
need. Always remember to check on your fish tank pump during your
maintenance checks. Also periodically check the pump whenever you
take time out to enjoy watching your fish.
