Water pumps are used in aquariums and terrariums for a wide variety of purposes. They can be used as a quick filter with a quick filter cartridge attached (JBL ProFlow SF) to quickly remove cloudiness. Water pumps are often installed to create additional current in the aquarium, as many fish species love water with strong currents (e.g. danionins, many characins). However, water pumps are equally popular for indoor fountains or waterfalls in terrariums. And aquarium owners who build their own internal filters need water pumps to operate the filters (e.g. “Hamburg mat filter”). Water pumps are also needed to operate UV-C water clarifiers if they are not integrated into the filter circuit.
