Information about powerheads

The Submersible Powerhead is an underwater water pump that draws from the water source and releases a strong stream of water out of the output. It can be used to speed up the process of changing water and make its own method of filtration and, of course, boost the flow of water through your aquarium. Water circulation is a topic of discussion in the hobby of saltwater aquariums to mimic the waves' movement, however, the lack of flow could also cause problems in freshwater aquariums. Fish tanks (especially big ones) that have a lot of ornaments or hardscapes may develop dead zones in which a lot of debris accumulates and algae begin to grow. The increased circulation of water can mix up waste particles to ensure they are absorbed through the filters, equally, distribute the nutrients that aquarium plants can consume, and increase surface agitation to ensure that fish can get sufficient oxygen for breathing. Additionally, certain species such as hillstream loaches and rainbow shiners are accustomed to swiftly flowing rivers and might enjoy a more current habitat.

Common uses

  • Powerhead can be used to push water into filtration equipment such as media and algae reactors as well as refugiums, and lawn scrubbers.
  • Stirrers along with UV sterilizers.
  • Mix seawater with synthetic salt
  • Transfer water into and out of the tank throughout water shifts
  • Aeration (primarily freshwater tanks)
  • The breaking of tension on the surface increases the exchange of gas
  • Vacuuming and blowing debris out of the hard-to-access parts of the sump as well as aquascape

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
