YOUR AFRICAN CICHLIDS AQUARIUM FILTRATION

In an enclosed environment, such as as an aquarium, toxic compounds accumulate quickly with out the natural

means to remove these elements efficiently.  Aquariums are dependent on filtration devices to create and maintain

a  healthy environment that can support life.  Your African Cichlids aquarium filtration system needs to have three

basics in order to achieve this.  They are biological, chemical, and mechanical processes.  Each will be introduced to

give a better understanding of filtration of the water. The goal of any type of filtration is to simply eliminate aquarium

water impurities.

 

BIOLOGICAL FILTRATION  involves a series of natural processes where toxic ammonia is broken down by

beneficial bacteria into less toxic elements.  The media used to achieve this needs to have a large surface area so the

bacteria growth can take place to effectively process harmful compounds.  Good water flow also aids in a thriving

bacteria colony.

 

CHEMICAL FILTRATION is the process of removing water impurities, chemically.  For this to be most effective

your water should first flow through the mechanical filtration. Chemical filtration removes pollutants the mechanical

 and biological processes aren’t able to discard.  It is the third or final stage of filtering, following the biological stage.

 

MECHANICAL FILTRATION is the method of removing debris suspended in your tank water.  As the water flows

through this media it physically traps and removes uneaten food and fish waste giving the water a clearer, cleaner

appearance .  It also prevents the biological filter from clogging in your African Cichlids aquarium filtration system.

 

Your African Cichlids aquarium filtration is maintained through this triple filter process.  Large surface areas for the

mechanical and chemical stages increases the filter capacity.  I have used power filters for smaller system setups for

over 17 years.  They are all still in use today with replacement of some internal parts.  The filter box and biological

media are all original .  Specifically, I use the Hagen Aqua Clear units.  They are extremely reliable and super-easy to

clean because of the removable filter basket.  Installation is a  “snap” . Simply place the filter on the back of the tank

and level it.
