Aquarium Air Pumps and Return Pumps

Without adequate agitation, water can become stagnant, carbon dioxide can build up and filters may not operate at optimal capacity. Air pumps and water pumps are used to create currents and agitate the water, promoting gas exchange and helping the filtration system to do its job.

Aquarium Air Pumps

An aquarium air pump is used to bubble air through the water. This helps to oxygenate the water by promoting surface agitation and encouraging gas exchange. A constant flow of air bubbles helps to push the carbon dioxide to the surface of the water, while allowing oxygen from the surface to penetrate the water.

Air pumps can also be used in conjunction with sponge filters and canister filters, helping the water to cycle through the mechanical media.

Aquarium Water Pumps

Aquarium water pumps are also used to create surface agitation and aerate the water. They can be used as wavemakers in reef tanks or to create currents and help water move through other systems like aquarium filters, skimmers and sumps. Water pumps tend to move more water than air pumps and so can be better for larger fish tanks or aquarium systems that require more agitation or greater aeration.
