Aquarium water filtration has become a specialty of Tetra fish products, and they offer a wide selection of filtration solutions that can vary from model to model. Tetra fish tank filters are designed to remove three kinds of waste from your aquarium.
Solid waste dirt or debris is removed through mechanical filtration, including sponges, foams, or sieves inside your filter. Dissolved waste like decaying tissue in tap water can be removed through chemical filtration—the most common of which utilizes activated carbon. Finally, biological waste like ammonia and nitrite is removed through biological filtration like bio-balls or Tetra fish Bio-Bag Cartridges.
There are also three types of Tetra fish tank filters pet parents can use. Power filters typically hang on the back edge of your aquarium. Internal filters are usually used for smaller aquariums and sit half in and half out of the water. Canister filters are typically used for larger aquariums and—due to their size—are placed separately from the aquarium in a cabinet or on a shelf.
