Aquariums are miniature eco-systems with waste products being broken down by living bacteria which serve as biological filtration. These bacteria need good water flow and oxygen, just like the fish do. There are many types of filters to choose from. Filters that trap particulate waste are mechanical filters. Filters that remove dissolved organic material use activated carbon and are considered chemical filters. A good filtration system will address biological, mechanical and chemical processes and keep your water safe for its inhabitants.
