Oxygen is something that all living things need to survive and aquatic animals require dissolved oxygen inside the water they inhabit. Aquariums which are low on oxygen will show signs of this such as lethargic fish, anaerobic bacterial growth and high chemical waste levels. Adding supplementary oxygen will not only allow your aquatic animals a better quality of life but it will also boost the ‘good bacteria’ performance as these rely heavily on the presence of oxygen to convert the fish waste into nitrogen gas which leaves the aquarium.
To ensure maximum efficiency hose lengths need to be kept to their minimum length and diffusers should be placed as deep in the tank as possible, allowing a longer time for the oxygen in each of the bubbles to be dissolved into the water as it rises.
