Chemical Filtration

Chemical Filtration

In addition, dissolved wastes are more difficult to remove from the water. The process of decomposition of dissolved wastes directly and adversely affects the smooth running of Nitrogen cycle. There are several techniques, collectively known as chemical filtration, which are used for the removal of dissolved wastes. The most popular being the use of activated carbon and foam fractionation.  To a certain extent, healthy plants extract dissolved chemical wastes from water when they grow, these plants can serve as a role in the containment of dissolved wastes.  However, for any reasons, if the plant(s) don’t survive the situation in an aquarium can quickly get aggravated. Thus affecting the health of all the species. Care has to be taken while utilizing natural / live plats in an aquarium to offset the consequences of chemical impurities.

Mechanical Filtration

Mechanical Filtration

The process of mechanical filtration is aimed at removing particulate material from the water. This matter may include uneaten food, faeces or plant or algal debris. Mechanical filtration is ordinarily achieved by passing water through materials which act as a sieve, physically trapping the particulate matter.  In easy terminology, solid waste can removed by physical hand netting of debris, or it may involve highly equipment which permits the water to flow through the filter and medium contained thereunder, which traps the physical wastes

Also, Removal of solid wastes from water through some form of medium is known as mechanical filtration. The solid wastes are first collected, and then must be physically removed from the aquarium system.  Mechanical filtration is ultimately ineffective if the solid wastes are not removed from the filter, and are allowed to decay and dissolve in the water.  Therefore, it is advisable that the Mechanical filtration works in conjugation with biological and / or Chemical Filtration to achieve desired result.

Biological Filtration

Biological Filtration

Filters under this category cater to proper and smooth functioning of Nitrogen Cycle. The proper management of the nitrogen cycle is a vital element of a successful aquarium. Metabolic wastes and excreta and other decomposing organic matter produce ammonia which is highly toxic to fish. The primary function of Biological Filter is to ensure proper breakdown of dangerous substances to make it suitable and conducive for aquarium ecology.

(For details refer to Nitrogen Cycle)

In most cases, a biological filter is nothing more than a chemically inert porous sponge, which provides a greatly enlarged surface area on which these bacteria can develop.
