Return Pump Information

Return pumps are crucial to create the perfect aquarium. A properly sized return pump will help to make a happy and healthy ecosystem. A return pump can be crucial for keeping your aquarium clean and healthy. Apart from delivering clean water back into the tank to it, the return pumps supply access to water for other apparatus such as chillers, reactors UV sterilizers, and many more. Flow is an essential aspect of a productive reef tank. Corals in nature constantly are experiencing the flow. The flow of water provides corals with the nutrients and nutrition they require and eliminates the waste that they produce. The same principle applies in aquariums where corals greatly depend on the movement of water that is created in a system. A high turnover rate is vital as it enhances gas exchange which brings oxygen into the tank and eliminates carbon dioxide. The higher rate of turnover enhances the performance of the protein skimmer as well as other equipment for filtration.

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.
