Water circulation is essential in any aquarium, to ensure proper filtration, prevent the formation of low-temperature regions or anoxic, and provide nutrients to stationary bodies. Energy heads and aerators often provide sufficient circulation to an aquarium base. In a planted aquarium, however, the water should be left undisturbed as much as possible to avoid losing precious carbon dioxide and devices such should not be used.

Water pumps provide the necessary circulation both within the tank and through the filtration system without unnecessary gas exchange. In a planted aquarium typical water flows passively pump intake submerged in which is powered by the filter (s), and returned to the tank through an outlet below the surface water. The function of a water pump in a planted aquarium is exactly the same as the heart in the human body, pumping water instead of blood through a filter instead of the kidneys and liver. This analogy underscores the critical importance of water pump in maintaining the health of a planted aquarium.

Not surprisingly, various types of aquarium water pumps to choose from, suitable for different types of tanks and budgets (see our selection in the pet market Julie). While perhaps not a glamorous part of the creation of a planted aquarium, the selection of a water pump is one of the most important tasks to ensure an experience successful. Several criteria must be considered.

Flow 1). The pump flows are classified in gallons per hour (GPH) under free flow conditions. For example, 100 GPH pump all the water distributed in a 50 gallon tank twice in one hour. The presence of a filter (and its condition) will reduce the actual flow. It is important to choose a pump with sufficient capacity to ensure adequate filtration. On the contrary, an excessive flow of water to turn your tank into a chaotic whirlwind. Normally, the manufacturer filter specifying the minimum flow required for the water pump. The pump selected should exceed the minimum flow, but is comparable to what

2) Durability. A water pump is one of the few devices with moving parts in an aquarium, and therefore subject to wear. Some pumps (eg magnetic drive) are designed without internal joints can become corroded. This is most important for saltwater tanks, but well worth considering for a planted aquarium.

3) heat generation. The electric motor generates heat that is transmitted to water. Too much heat can contribute to wear and it is not desirable when you need to maintain the temperature water below a certain level.

Power consumption 4). A pump operates continuously and along with the lights is one of the major contributors to costs energy of a planted aquarium. I prefer pumps with lower energy demands to keep costs down.

Noise level 5). Unless the pump will run completely submerged, the sound of the water pump should not be underestimated as a factor in the enjoyment of your planted aquarium. You can often find information on noise levels on the manufacturer website.

In general, you must select the best quality of the pump you can afford. There are fewer sources of headaches in an aquarium worse than a bomb of the poor noise, overheating, and leaks that occur when least we should send scrambling for a replacement. Having to replace a faulty pump – even with other poor – after a few months of operation makes this choice a false economy. The selection of water pumps are offered in the pet market Julie includes only quality products to prevent such problems.
