Filter for Fish Tank

You have set up a fish tank for your fishes. You have started to tend your fishes in the fish tank. Your fishes have started to absorb some food and chemicals to keep it healthy. This is no surprise. When you feed your fishes with good food and treat the fish water regularly, your fishes are sure to be in healthy shape in your fish tank. Of course, it is an easy thing to do. Anyone can tend their fishes in this manner. But this is simply not all. The trick is to get an aquarium filter for your fish tank. Aquarium filter will nurture your fish and fish tank health well. It performs the magic of  clearing off the dirt of your fish tank.

Your fishes get to break free from harmful effects of excessive ammonia and nitrite. But well, this is not as simple as you think. This is because there are various types of a filter for fish tank. It is not one. It is not two. Sure, there are differences and similarities. The filters  have different mechanisms. They have different capacities. A proper understanding of the appropriate mechanisms that fit into each filters will open your eyes to the type of filter that best suits  your fish tank. So, this is why I have gathered some types of filter for your fish tank below:

Fish Tank

Internal Power Filter

Of course, this kind of filter is not hard to identify because of its seemingly invisible mechanism. They are very small and you could only see how they operate inside the fish tank itself. So, it is only logical that this kind of filter works better in smaller fish tanks.

External Power Filter

Once you can relate with the internal power filter, you can easily comprehend how the external power filter works. Unlike the Internal power filter, it has a visible mechanism. This is because you will have to allow it pass through various forms of filtration before it finally reaches the fish tank.  It is one of the commonest type of filters for fish tanks. Compared to internal power filter, it fits in more in medium-sized fish tanks.

Corner Filters

Somehow, the above filters has one or more connection with corner filters especially the internal power filter. It has an wholly insider mechanism such that you will have to position it in the bottom of the fish tank. It is a kind of small box which absorbs the water in the fish tank from the bottom. The water then gets filtered through the box. It is suitable for small tanks.

Canister Filter

Canister filter has a close affinity with the external power filter. This is because it is more of a visible mechanism. But unlike power filters, they are larger. They are the best match for larger fish tanks.

Sponge filter

Well, sponge filter doesn’t work like the real life sponge. It is suitable for both freshwater and saltwater fish tanks. It works exactly like a water sieve attached to a kind of air blowing  product. This is simply how it works; you get to attach an air tube to the sponge filter and the air tube draws the water in the fish tank into the filter.  Of course, this simple process that comes with sponge filter always give birth to a very clean water. This is because the dirt in the water stuck to the filter during the process.  It follows that this kind of filter is suitable for smaller tanks.

This is simply not all. We have the sponge filter,  wet dry filter and on and on like that. Are your fish tanks small, medium or large? Each type of filter will be determined by the capacity of your fish tank.

Vessels with hulls free of fouling organisms, such as barnacles, algae and molluscs, consume less fuel and have much lower operational costs. Today, these benefits are often obtained at the expense of the environment. Luritek’s technologies are changing this picture by combining long service life, durability, exceptional biofouling management, and drag reduction, with environmental responsibility.

With the ability to perform for many years without repeated application, Luritek’s solutions provide substantial savings in downtime and maintenance costs. Additional benefits include improved fuel efficiency and superior fouling resistance whether in port for an extended time or at sea.commercial_military_ship

Aquaculture

Back in the 70’s, only 6% of the world’s food fish came from aquaculture. Today, over half of the seafood we eat is

farmed. Aquaculture is currently the fastest growing food production sector, with an average worldwide growth rate of 6% – 8% per year. By 2030, the global population is anticipated to exceed 8 billion, creating significant demand on the world’s oceans for food. Sadly, 70% of the world’s wild fish species have already been declared fully exploited or depleted by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

While aquaculture reduces the pressure on wild populations, there are environmental and economic concerns.

Aquaculture equipment, including pens and nets, are often treated with toxic antifouling coatings that prove ineffective over the long term. The aquaculture industry is currently seeking effective solutions to improve operational costs and food quality while minimizing impact on the environment.

Luritek’s technologies are proven performers in these demanding applications.
