Product information

Healthy fish
An air pump for aquariums is an advantage during the night since plants need light to produce oxygen. In thinly planted aquariums the air pump supplies the necessary water circulation. In aquariums with dense planting the air pump provides the aquarium with oxygen at night, since the number of plants means the oxygen concentration can drop to a dangerous level. When disease is present in the aquarium the air pump increases the oxygen level in the water, an essential condition for many medications.

Simple to connect
Connect hose with air pump. Cut air hose and insert check valve. Cut the remaining hose to the desired length. Connect one end with check valve and other end with air stone. If possible mount the pump on the wall next to the aquarium. Hook for hanging up attached.

FAQ
Does the use of bubble stones and a strong current expel the important plant nutrient, CO2, from the water?

A bubble stone does NOT expel CO2 from the water. This is a widespread misconception in the hobby! CO2 and O2 are not related to each other in the water. Depending on the degree of saturation and the partial pressure gradient, they dissolve into air. Please bear in mind that we do not add pure oxygen to the aquarium, and instead add an air mixture of nitrogen, CO2, O2 and other components. When air pumps are used for ventilation, there is only an expulsion effect as a result of the enlarged surface of air/water if CO2 is added, to the effect that the partial pressure in the water is higher than in the air. This cannot be quantified without expending significant time and effort on metrology.
