As contained aquatic ecosystems, aquariums require an external force to keep the water moving and filtered in order to prevent stagnation and the creation of an unsafe environment for plants and fish. Aquarium pumps and power heads provide the power needed to push water through the aquarium filter (if needed), or just to keep it circulating and healthy. Our Aquarium Pump store features a wide selection of top-of-the-line pumps for use in virtually every aquarium environment, whether large or small, fresh or saltwater.

are a type of circulation and filtration system designed to keep otherwise stagnant aquarium water on the move and add much needed aeration. This keeps the tank a happy, healthy environment for fish and mimics as much as possible the currents and waves of natural oceans, lakes, and rivers. Of course, different types of aquariums require different types of pumps. For consumers who are new to fish care, this can be a bit confusing. Consumers with small, goldfish bowl-style of aquariums with only one or two fish rarely use pumps, though there are very small pumps available. For those who opt not to use a pump with a small fish bowl, the water must frequently be dumped, the tank cleaned, and the water replaced with clean, filtered water. That water must then be treated for impurities. Since it would not be very practical to dump and clean out a massive aquarium with multiple fish every other day, aquarium pumps reduce the need for these scheduled cleanings by moving the water about and providing the catalyst necessary for most filters to properly function. eBay has a wide selection of aquarium pumps, and consumers only need to know proper search methods in order to locate and purchase the right pump.
One of the main categorizations of aquarium air pumps is size. If you have lots of fish or lots of accessories, you are definitely going to want to get a bigger pump. Moreover, if you are using fairly large air stones, due to the resistance they create, you will also want to use a bigger filter. A general rule of thumb is that the less resistance is in the pump, such as if you are using small air stones or none at all, and the less oxygen demand your tank has, the smaller the pump can be.
