AQUARIUM AIR PUMP - Provide oxygen and bubbles for your fish

Are you new to the aquarium hobby? If yes, then you’re probably overwhelmed with what exactly you need to buy for your fish tank. We can help you choose the right air pump for your aquarium.

Does my tank need an aquarium air pump?

All fish need oxygen to breathe. Most use their gills to absorb dissolved oxygen from the water and with enough water movement or surface agitation from an aquarium filter, it should provide the fish with ample oxygen. If your tank is heavily stocked or if you like looking at bubbles rising through your fish tank, we recommend getting an air pump to aerate the water.

There are many reasons why you might need a fish tank air pump. Below are some of the instances where you might need to install an aquarium air pump.

Low oxygen in fish tank

Pumping air into the water allows bubbles to form and as these bubbles rise to the top of the water they burst and break the surface tension which in turns allows more oxygen to be dissolved into the water.

Increase water circulation

The flow of your filter may not be strong enough to move the water surface of some parts of your aquarium. An air pump will help circulate the water and stop areas of your fish tank from becoming stagnant.

Replicate natural conditions

You may want to recreate the natural conditions of a medium to fast-flowing body of water. By installing an aquarium air pump you can increase water flow in your fish tank.

Required for sponge or gravel filters

Air pumps may be necessary for some aquarium equipment such as sponge filters or under gravel filters. Air is used to draw water through the sponge or gravel to filter the water.

Choosing the right air pump

The fish air pump you need will depend on the size of the tank and the type of air stone you wish to use. Larger air stones will require a more powerful aquarium air pump. Air pumps or fish tank aerator pumps come in different sizes from small single outlet, dual outlets to air pumps with 4 outlets. We also stock larger pond air pumps with over 10 outlets; these are typically used for fish rooms or ponds.

Here are a few examples of how to choose the right sized air pump.

Small air stones

Small air stones such as the Aqua One Ball Air Stone 2.5cm can be used with most air pumps.

Medium air stones

For air discs or air stones up to 10cm a small to medium air pump is required.

Large air stones / Air curtains

For air curtains or longer air stones we recommend medium to large air pumps.

Small fish tanks

Single outlet air pumps are perfect for small fish tanks.

Large fish tanks

For larger aquariums we recommend using a twin outlet air pump and have one air stone on each side of the tank.

Fish tanks deeper than 60cm

We recommend using the Schego WS2 or WS3 air pumps as they are designed to pump up to 1m deep.
